The BrewBuilt X1 Uni was purpose-built with today's brewers and modern brewing processes in mind. The end result of thousands of hours of research, contemplation, and development, this conical fermenter boasts a feature set that will advance your fermentation process, improve the quality of your finished beer, and look absolutely stunning while doing it. Made entirely of 304 stainless steel, the quality exceeds what has previously been done in brewing applications and approaches the level of pharmaceutical-grade finish. With all the premium features brewers demand, and a list of available upgrades, the X1 Uni will be their favorite piece of brewing equipment for many years to come.
2” T.C. Dump Valve
With an oversized 2" bottom port, extra-large dry hop charges can be added worry-free. Many conicals can run into clogging issues with a standard 1.5" dump valve, but BrewBuilt designed the X1 Uni with hop lovers in mind. Flocculating yeast will slide right down the smooth interior walls, collecting neatly in the bottom of the cone to make yeast harvesting and removal a breeze. And the butterfly dump valve will integrate perfectly with the optional Flex Chamber Trub Separator and Yeast Harvester.
Many homebrew conicals on the market receive a common complaint, and that's the tippiness that comes with a three-legged design. This design is mostly fine when the unit is set on an even surface, but it also results in users needing to purchase a bracing shelf if they ever upgrade to rolling casters or add leg extensions. The X1 Uni features a four-leg, welded-bar reinforced base modeled after professional brewery tanks. Although it's more expensive to make them this way, the cost is well worth it, as this seemingly small detail provides an absolutely rock-solid foundation. This is a critical feature for those planning on adding rolling casters. The reinforced legs also allowed the conical to stand taller, so there's no need for additional leg extenders. Mount an elbow, a sight glass, or the Flex Chamber underneath the dump valve and still have room to spare.
Extra Beefy Handles
We don’t recommend lifting and moving a full conical, but it may be necessary at some point with the help of a friend. The handles on the X1 Uni feature molded silicone over stainless steel for a solid, comfortable grip, and are uniquely designed to stop half-way when they swing out to protect fingers from being crushed.
The standard thread-in feet enable the conical's stance to be adjusted to compensate for uneven flooring. Quickly and easily adjust the fermenter if the brewery floor isn't completely level. The feet can be swapped out with our high-quality casters at any time.
Other Features We Love:
The base model X1 Uni has the most affordable price point with the option to add upgrades down the road. All of the accessories included with the X1 Uni+ can be purchased separately at any time.
Recommended minimum batch size is based on the volume needed to submerge the thermowell, allowing you to use a temperature controller to maintain fermentation temps.
