DetailsThese bolt-on leg extensions for the 14.5 Gallon Fermenator are a great feature for brewers that want to make both ales and lagers with the same unit. Since the legs are removable, you can place the Fermenator in you refrigerator for lager brewing. With the legs attached, the Fermenator is at the perfect height for easy siphoning into a Cornelius keg. The leg extensions may also be used with casters, which is quite handy for rolling the Fermenator into place after filling.

5.0 / 5.08 ReviewsVery nice addition to the fermenter!I had ordered these leg extensions along with the 14.5gal conical fermenter with tri-clamp fittings. I was a little skeptical of why these seemed to cost so much for just 3 stainless legs, but I'm more then impressed with the fully assembled fermenter. _x000D_The legs are just as highly engineered as the fermenter. _x000D_All holes and fittings are precision cut so everything lines up perfectly, no fiddling around with these. There are reinforcement plates welded to the legs where they arrach to the fermenter to stregnthen the meeting point. Everything lines up flush with the bracing supported by a piece of C channel. The legs and all bracing and hardware is complete stainless material, no cheap nuts & bolts here._x000D_I mainly use my fermenter for ales and am not planing on refrigerating the fermenter, rather use it and have it out for display. These legs raise the overall height of the fermenter to a little over 4' tall. The fermenter seems much more significant and impressive once it is raised off the floor. The legs also make sediment dumping and yeast harvesting easier without having to crouch on the floor by the dump valve._x000D__x000D_These extensions are worth the price and greatly enhance the fermenter.February 7, 2013WorthwhileI wanted the extra height because I also have the tri-clamp fittings. The legs are expensive but worth it. They are well designed and constructed. Everything lines up precisely so the surface is flush . My Fermenator is now four feet tall and with the tri-clamps its easy to remove sediment and collect yeast. All in all it's a great system.March 28, 2013A great enhancementThese legs are well engineered and all the holes line up perfectly. Everything lines up and fits snugly. The 3 legs meet in the center and there are reinforcement plates that are welded on so its very strong and stable. _x000D_The legs and wheels are easily worth the money.June 20, 2013The extra height is greatIf you have tri clamp fittings you want these. I have the wheels also and can move the whole thing around when full. Nicely built and works great.July 20, 2013Worth gettingThe extra height really makes the fermentor much easier to use. It's now mobile (and tats important because you are not moving 10+ gallons of beer without wheels), and you can use the tri-clamp with it.October 10, 2013Makes the fermentor more usableIts a great addition that lets me add wheels and have easier access to the port on the bottom for harvesting yeast and removing trub. They are strong and have no problem supporting the fermentor.December 13, 2013Take full advantage of the unitI have the tri-clamp fittings and wanted additional height and also wanted the wheel base so I could move the fermentor around. These extensions are well made and everything lines up precisely so the surface is flush._x000D_March 3, 2014
