The breakthrough in this new design means that you can finally naturally carbonate your clear conditioned beer in the Fermentasaurus and dispense directly to tap. No need to carbonate beer in the keg or bottle. You can drink directly from the Fermentasaurus saving time and hassle. With the optional pressure kit you can pressurise the vessel up to (2.4 bar) to allow you to carbonate and dispense directly from the vessel like a keg! Alternatively you can transfer under pressure to stainless kegs with practically no exposure to oxygen.
Home brewers can see the yeast in action as the Fermentasaurus is crystal clear. You can dump yeast from the conical shape and clarify the beer without the need to rack off into another vessel. In the past clarifying beer meant racking from one fermenter to another, increasing the risks of infection and oxidation. Don’t waste time and put your beer at risk; now you can ferment, clarify and carbonate in one vessel.
The Fermentasaurus comes with a yeast harvesting container of 500 ml that is also pressure rated. The yeast harvesting container is ideal so you can save your yeast from one brew and pitch it into the next brew.
The Fermentasaurus has been designed with a sanitary butterfly valve with stainless gate. This butterfly valve has been designed so that no threads are immersed in liquid when the Fermentasaurus is in use. Many fermenters on the market use ball valves which are notoriously difficult to sanitise as the ball valve assemblies have small cavities in them that fill with liquid and are near impossible to clean without disassembly.

Fermentasaurus Pressure kit
The Fermentasaurus Pressure kit turns the Fermentasaurus Starter kit into a true uni tank used for fermentation, for carbonating and for serving finished beer. This kit enables you to pressurise the Fermentasaurus. This special pressure lid includes a pressure relief valve and stainless ball lock posts; these are the same posts that are often seen on home brewing kegs.
This special pressurisable lid is also supplied with a silicon dip tube with float. The floating dip tube is a design that when the product is drawn out of the Fermentasaurus it is always drawn from the top where the beer is most clear. This greatly improves the speed at which you can drink clear beer directly from the fermenter, even when the yeast hasn't completely settled to the bottom.
Pressure rated lid:
- 304 stainless steel ball lock posts
- glass reinforced nylon
- 2.4 bar (35 psi) pressure relief valve
