Grainfather GF30 Fermenter Basic Cooling Edition 

Introducing the Grainfather GF30 Fermenter Basic Cooling Edition, the ultimate solution for temperature-controlled fermentation.

This fermenter is specifically designed to provide precise temperature control, ensuring optimal conditions for your brewing process and delivering exceptional beer and wine every time.

Key Features:

Advanced Cooling System

The GF30 Fermenter Basic Cooling Edition comes with a built-in cooling system that allows you to precisely control the fermentation temperature. The included cooling pump and cooling coil work together to maintain a consistent and desired temperature range, even during the warmest months.

30L Capacity

With a generous 30L (7.9 gallons) capacity, this fermenter is perfect for brewing larger batches of beer or wine. Whether you're a passionate homebrewer or a small-scale commercial brewer, this fermenter provides ample space for your fermentation needs.

High-Quality Construction

Crafted with high-quality materials, the GF30 Fermenter Basic Cooling Edition is built to last. The robust stainless steel body ensures durability, while the transparent PET fermenter allows you to monitor the fermentation process without the risk of contamination.

Easy-to-Use Control Box

The included control box provides intuitive temperature control with a user-friendly interface. You can easily set and adjust the desired fermentation temperature, monitor the current temperature, and customize the cooling settings according to your brewing requirements.

Precise Temperature Control

The GF30 Fermenter Basic Cooling Edition allows you to ferment your beer or wine at the exact temperature needed for optimal flavour development. The cooling system maintains a consistent temperature range, preventing temperature fluctuations that can negatively impact the fermentation process.

Integrated Heating Element

In addition to cooling, the fermenter also features an integrated heating element. This allows you to warm the fermentation chamber during colder months or when brewing temperature-sensitive beer styles, ensuring consistent fermentation temperatures throughout the year.

Conical Shape and Bottom Drain

The conical shape of the fermenter facilitates the settling of yeast and other sediment at the bottom, making it easier to separate the clear beer or wine from the trub. The bottom drain valve allows for the effortless removal of sediment and sampling of your brews.

Modular Design

The Grainfather GF30 Fermenter Basic Cooling Edition is designed with modularity in mind. It can be seamlessly integrated with other Grainfather products, such as the Grainfather G30 Brewing System or the Grainfather Conical Fermenter, to create a comprehensive brewing setup tailored to your needs.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

Cleaning the fermenter is a breeze, thanks to its smooth surfaces and detachable components. The PET fermenter is easy to disassemble, allowing for thorough cleaning and sanitation between batches. Proper cleaning practices ensure the longevity of the fermenter and maintain the quality of your brews.

Expandable Cooling Capacity

The GF30 Fermenter Basic Cooling Edition offers the flexibility to expand the cooling capacity by adding an additional cooling pump and coil (sold separately). This allows you to cool multiple fermenters simultaneously, ideal for brewers with larger production needs.

Upgrade your homebrewing experience with the Grainfather GF30 Fermenter Basic Cooling Edition. Take control of your fermentation process and achieve consistent and exceptional results with its advanced cooling system and user-friendly features.

Unlock the full potential of your brewing recipes and enjoy the satisfaction of crafting top-quality beers and wines with ease.
