50 and 100-Liter FV’s for Sale

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

There are both 50 and 100-liter FV’s for sale. These fermentation vessels are all jacketed and have top manways. They don’t have spunding valves as standard.

Please see photos of both the 50 and 100-liter FV’s, below. There are 30 * 50 and 4 * 100-liter FV’s available currently. Both sizes have a working pressure of 2-Bar, which is 30 Psi.

These tanks are ideal for larger brewhouse systems, if a brewery wants to do some split batch brews. I like to have some smaller tanks like this, when working on a brewpub system (500 to 1,000-liters).

Ideal for Split Batch Brewing – 50 and 100-Liter FV’s for Sale

It allows the brew crew a few different options, when it comes to split batches. For example:

Trying Out Different Dry-Hops

If you’re thinking about trying a different dry-hop regimes. You can send most of the wort to a large fermenter. Taking some wort direct from the heat exchanger to one of these smaller FV’s at the same time.

You can carry out the same fermentation profile, but try a different dry hop regimes, and do side-by-side comparison. It’s a quick and easy way to to see which dry-hop regime a brewery prefers.

Using A Different Yeast

Similar to when trying a different dry hop regime, you can split a batch and then use a different yeast in the small fermenter.

Do A Variation of the Main Batch

Often when I’m brewing a farmhouse ale. I like to take some wort to a small FV’s and use different (crazier) aromatics on the batch. It gives me small volume of a variation, which could be used for a “weekend special”, for example.

One time I took some smoked lager wort from my main 2,000-liter batch to a 150-liter FV. I let the beer ferment as normal, till it was close to terminal gravity.

Then I added 25-liters of apple concentrate to this small batch, letting it all ferment out. I ended up with a 13% smoked graf. It was a crazy fun brew, which went down well and sold out.

Carbonic Maceration

A brewery can also use these small FV’s for carbonic maceration, much like in wine making. Please follow the link to learn about this process. Then you can fill beer onto fruit/liquid, to make a interesting beer/wine hybrid.
