It takes a lot to get Jeff excited enough to crap himself. Well, he just crapped himself. Why? Because we have two (2) 14.5 gallon stainless steel conical fermenters from Blichmann Engineering arriving on Monday. We’ve been pinching our pennies to splurge on these bad boys, which offer a number of advantages:
- minimal handling of fermenting beer since we won’t have to transfer and can siphon the yeast off the bottom
- easy measurement via access to a ball valve
- no light
- easy cleaning compared to carboys
The plan is to pilot our first organic beer in one of these conicals. We’ll see if we can get all of the supplies in on time. If so, I do believe Jeff will crap himself AGAIN.
