Craft Brew Catalyst Beer Fermenter

Jul 20, 2016

Craft beer continues to take off in earnest throughout the beer brewing world. As a result, the number of homebrewers followed suit. And just like the microbreweries are getting a bit more edgy with their styles and variants, the equipment available for home brewing is becoming more user-friendly and sophisticated.

The Catalyst Fermentor is one such piece of equipment. In fact, it’s a piece of equipment set out to eliminate several other essential pieces of traditional home brewing gear. Primarily it’s a beer fermentor, set out to begin the process of converting fermentable sugars into alcohol after the initial brewing process. However, it features a few perks that serve to reduce the headache and mess involved with post primary fermentation. For instance, the Trub Trap, a three-inch butterfly valve lets homebrewers attach a mason jar to the bottom of the Catalyst to collect sediment during fermentation. You can also use it to harvest yeast for later brews as well. The tank itself is 6.5 gallons, made from Tritan polymer and is medical grade, BPA-free, and dishwasher safe. It’s set to retail for $200 this fall and is currently available for pre-order on Kickstarter for $160.
