Title: sanke fermentors
Post by: O.P.P. on May 10, 2016, 06:35:24 PM
All, I'm ditching my sanke for fermentation (in advance of something else)

It's an old AB keg, and comes with a custom-fit rolling dolly and pressure transfer setup from brewer's hardware (link) including ss racking cane, 1/2" FPT tee, orange carboy cap and compression fitting for the cane.

I'll bring it to the meeting Thursday if anyone wants to pick it up - otherwise, straight to CL.

What was your "something else"?

Conical? My only gripe on sanke fermenters is difficulty to clean.

Yeah, I gave up on using sankes for fermenting. I couldn't tell if they were clean. I cut the top out of one, and now it's my boil kettle. It had a good coat of beer stone on the inside, took a good soaking in muriatic acid to get it all out. Now I ferment in plastic bags and toss them out afterwards, no cleaning!
