Great fermenter
This is a high quality fermenter and especially because it is stainless steel. It was a little bit of a pain to assemblle the valve but other than that taking extra time it beats the plastic and glass models.

good product, stainless steel is a little thin, and dip tube needs to be longer, otherwise good for the price.

I'm trying to compare this item with the somewhat smaller but similar ported Chapman brew bucket. Internally, is the bottom flat or conical? Is the lid gasket replaceable? Any other important differences you could mention, assuming you are familiar with the Chapman?
Ken H on Dec 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ken,

Thanks for your questions! I am unfamiliar with the Chapman, but I will do my best to answer what I can. The Sovereign has a flat bottom, it is not conical. The gasket is attached on the lid, and we do not currently carry replacements. Hope this helps!

A shopper on Dec 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello!

I am not familiar with the Chapman, but I will answer your questions the best I can. The bottom of the sovereign is flat, and the gasket is part of the lid for which we do not currently have replacement parts for sale.
Looks good but need more views. Top and inside. Concerned about transferring to secondary without sediment. Also is ball valve able to be fitted with alternate hose connections Quick disconnects, threaded hose connection, etc?
Kenneth V on Oct 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We will have more photo once the product is released. It is a standard ball valve with 1/2" NPT, and weldless bulkhead.
Is there a smaller version -- I brew 2.5 gallon batches, also, if it can take heat, it would be great for an aussie chiller?
A shopper on Dec 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello!

Thanks for the question! We do not offer a smaller version of the Sovereign at this time. We have not tested the Sovereign with heat, and doing so would void the warranty on the fermenter.
Can you add fire directly to the bottom? A major benefit to steel is being able to sterilize with boiling water.
A shopper on Oct 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is designed to be used as fermenter only, not a boil kettle. We do not recommend direct firing in this.
Are there any heating/cooling options available to regulate the fermentation temps?
A shopper on Feb 19, 2018
When will this be available?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We are hoping to make them available by the end of the November.
Is the valve located above the sediment level for making wine?
A shopper on Feb 19, 2018
how does the fermenter work with kombucha brewing ? is it reliable?
A shopper on Feb 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello,
I have not used it for kombucha but I do use it for fermenting wine.

Because it’s stainless steel cleaning is simple. It works great for Fermentation and I cannot see that it give problems for any type of Fermentation.

In answer to your last concern; yes it is reliable. This is similar to the large tanks used in commercial brewing.

I hope you enjoy it

How useful is the racking arm with the flat bottom?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I find the rotating arm worked well at getting most of the wort out.
I use a Brewjacket immersion heater/cooler. Could I redrill the lid to accommodate the rod for the Brewjacket?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not really sure
C an you hook up a screen inside to filter the sediment out?
A shopper on Jan 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello!

You can if you would like. You can use an Adapter for Isoflow bulkhead (SKU K085) and a boil screen (SKU ZY22) to attach the screen to the inside of the ball valve. This is not typical on fermented beer though.
Can I set this fermenter over a flame so I can use it for distilling?
A shopper on Dec 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That is not it's intended purpose, and has not been tested for use with direct heat.
Does it have a conical bottom?
