This cutting-edge model now features a state-of-the-art 3" Tri-Clover Ferrule seamlessly molded into the tank, accompanied by a redesigned tri-clover dump valve.

Offering the advantages of a high-end stainless conical fermenter, the FermZilla goes above and beyond by allowing users to witness the fermentation process in real-time. Additionally, it empowers brewers to ferment at pressures of up to 2.4 bar, delivering an unparalleled level of flexibility and performance.

The FermZilla 55L Tri-Conical can be used in the following ways:

Basic Gravity Fermenter - New Brewers
Pressure Brewing Kit - Most Popular
Hop Bong Pressure Kit - For Intermediate Brewers
Glycol Twister Pressure Brewing Kit - Glycol Obsessed

To incorporate a Thermowell into the lid of this fermenter, you'll need the 60cm Stainless Steel Thermowell Kit. This kit comes complete with the bulkhead fitting necessary for proper and secure attachment.

That way you can take a core reading and control your ferment with a RAPT Fermentation Controller.

Please read the instructions thoroughly before use. The current version can be found in the tab above. We will not be held liable for misuse or mishandling of the unit contrary to the instructions.
Keeping the units out of direct sunlight is a must for all PET fermenters. Sunlight degrades PET.
Do not expose to temperatures exceeding 35°C and pressure ferment past 5psi at these temperatures.


When using this vessel under pressure, please ensure a water pressure check is performed before use. Ensure all connections are leak proof before filling the fermenter - this must be done every time the unit is used.

To do this, fill the FermZilla up with water, then apply a minimum of 15psi pressure to the vessel. Check for leaks around all Cap / Threads by tipping it upside down, in all directions where there are risks of leakage.

Occasionally these units may come with some small indentations/dimples/dents from shipping, this is just a reality of shipping large Blow-Moulded thin-walled vessels. But don't panic, these fermenters are designed to endure minor deformations such as this. This was a necessary implementation into the design so that they can withstand some accidental suction from cold crashing and rough handling in transit without compromising their integrity and ability to endure high pressures. All small dents will push out and settle with use and positive pressure and are only an issue and warrant replacement in the rare event they start to show white stress patterns or have damaged the plastic.
