20BBL Conical Fermenter

A 20-barrel (bbl) conical fermenter is a vessel used in breweries for fermenting beer. It has a capacity of 20 barrels, where one barrel typically equals 31 US gallons or approximately 117.3 liters. The term “conical” refers to the shape of the fermenter, which typically tapers down to a cone at the bottom. This design allows for the settling of yeast and other solids during fermentation, making it easier to remove them later. Conical fermenters are popular in breweries due to their efficiency, ease of use, and ability to produce high-quality beer. They are often made of stainless steel for durability and ease of cleaning.
