Why 304/316L Stainless Steel?
Our competitors can’t beat our customer service, design capability, or high-quality products. The only thing that can claim to have an advantage is their pricing. However, if you read the fine print, you’ll learn that with lower pricing comes lower quality. Many beer fermentation tank manufacturers construct equipment out of low-grade products. Carbon steel, copper, aluminum, iron, and even inferior grades of stainless steel can have a drastic effect on your beer. These materials can leech into your brew or have a chemical reaction, and thus affect the taste of your beer.
Furthermore, these tanks won’t last as long as high-grade stainless steel because these materials aren’t resistant to rust or corrosion. For brewing, and for fermentation, in particular, it is vital that you purchase a well-designed, solidly constructed tank made of 304 or 316L stainless steel. Other manufacturers might offer tanks of these materials as a “premium” or “upscale” tank option. At Cedarstone, it’s the standard.
Which Stainless Steel Do You Need?
304 stainless steel, and the 316L version one step above it offer corrosion resistance and supreme durability. You really get your money’s worth with both of these products. A fermentation tank holds wort and yeast, which undergoes a huge chemical process. You need a tank that can withstand that change on the inside. At the same time, our jacketed tanks can inhibit temperature fluctuation from the outside, so your brew isn’t affected by the weather or external factors. Furthermore, the process of fermentation causes a lot of pressure to build up inside the tank. Your tank must be able to withstand this pressure, or you might have a major health hazard on your hands. Our pressure vessels are certified and sure to keep you and your brewers safe from harm during the brewing process.
Don’t take risks with a shabby product. Instead, call Cedarstone. We can provide the best tanks for your brewery in terms of durability and reliability. Furthermore, we can construct your perfect tank with our custom design service.
Why You Need A Fermentation Tank
Now that you understand that a cheaper tank isn’t worth the money you’ll waste on, you might try to cut costs in other ways. One way some emerging brewers try to cut costs is by purchasing general storage tanks for their fermentation process. We highly recommend you don’t employ this frugal tactic. Even if your storage tank is 304 stainless steel and certified by the ASME to withstand pressure, it still won’t serve you well. A fermentation tank is specifically designed for the process of crafting beer. These tanks are fitted with the tools to release carbon dioxide as needed, without allowing other air or contaminants to enter the batch. This helps to guarantee that your product is safe, pure and that your beverage doesn’t go flat.
Additionally, fermentation tanks tend to be designed differently from storage tanks. While you can find some cone bottom storage tanks, it’s not a necessity for all products. However, you’ll definitely want ya conical fermenter. Yeast falls to the bottom of the cone as the brewing process progresses. You can then remove the yeast and reuse it for a future batch. When you remove the yeast from the bottoms of the fermentation vessels, you don’t have to worry about the little bits making their way into your Brite tank or beer bottles. Fermentation tanks are constructed and designed to make the brewing process easier and more enjoyable.
