Why Choose our Kombucha Symbiosis fermenters?
Research has shown that Kombucha Probiotics ferment faster with a better ratio of beneficial acids when the bacteria and yeast are exposed to a larger surface area. The typical cylinder brewing pot has a small surface area compared to the depth. This results in limited oxygen exchange snd poor circulation and thermodynamic flow which separates the activity of bacteria from the actions of the yeasts. The greater the surface are the greater exposure the bacteria have to oxygen. The greater the oxygen level the faster the bacteria will convert alcohol to beneficial acids. The yeast also benefit from a greater oxygen levels as they are stay in RESPIRATION (reproduction) with lower alcohol production. In Kombucha Tea production we are looking for TA (total acids) to be between 3 and 4, with alcohol to be <0.5%. and the pH between 2.5 and 3.5. The best Kombucha Tea is produced when there is the greatest Symbiotic Relationship - and in a shorter time with the lowest alcohol content.
Versus the standard "beer" fermenter-kettles that follow a 1.2:1 ratio where the height of the kettle is 1.2 times the diameter. This - for beer brewers - has been adopted to achieve a more consistent 10% evaporation rate during the boil. However - Kombucha, Jun, Ginger Beer, etc, do not" boi" just simply bring the water, tea, sugar to a boil (or so) without any loss due to evaporation (as would be experienced in the high and longer boil necessary for beer. (Hot Break / Cold Break) and thats why most "fermenters" are that shape to accommodate both as a mash tun, boiler, kettle and fermenter.
Each fermenter includes pan, cloth cover and elastic support. Support is needed to prevent the cloth from dropping into the ferment. (our 18 gallon pans feature a stainless steel pan cover) .
