Corny keg Fermenter


Recommended Posts

Just converted a 19lt Corny Keg to a fermenter. Using a spunding valve to control press and a floating dip tube and filter. Fridge converted to temperature controlled fermentation cabinet. Using a Morgan heat pad and Keg king temperature controller. Just need a fresh wort kit and it is ready to go.IMG_20220606_081209696.thumb.jpg.bfbcd204d946b83e2daa200b1dff03c2.jpg

Great work!

Other than the ability to ferment under pressure the ironic thing about that setup is how much effort it takes to replicate most of the functionality of the BeerDroid.

So if we could just add a pressure seal and larger capacity (for those that need it) to the Droid’s features we’d almost have the perfect unit.

@Dustin Frothman , you are correct. The droid is so simple , easy and makes great beer. Just did the Pirate Life IPA again. This was just a bit of fun. When I bought the Kegerator it came with the heat mat , controller and 4x 19lt kegs. Currently my droid is out of action till I have time to fine out where it is leaking from.
