Our Complete Basic Kombucha Symbiosis Micro Brewery Start Up From $1,199.99
The low profile of each container has the optimum depth to surface area allowing greater oxygen and nitrogen penetration to the kombucha symbiosis. This, in my opinion, enhances the flavor profile and creates a faster conversion of alcohol to acetic and gluconic acids. Faster Ferments. Lower Alcohol. Less Sugar. Single batch or Continuous Brewing methods . Stagger or alternate brewing cycles, and flavors. as well as other Probiotics like Jun, Water Crystals, Ginger Beer. Easy to harvest, clean and start again Easy to expand, Little worry about outgrowing. Complete turn key systems available. Please note that prices on stainless steel and transportation are rising rapidly and more often are in short supply. This will probably continue as the government keeps shutting things down. Many, many small business have been wiped out and will probably never come back. We encourage all to support the remaining - and new - small family business as best one can. Strangely this has spurred on new entrepreneurs and we try to help as much as we can.

Drain(flow) rate estimated 1/2" NPT to 1/2" Barb Hose 1 gallon / 2-3 minutes. Recommended for our 12-18 Gallon containers
Drain(flow) rate estimated 1 gallon 1-3 minutes. (1/2" NPT to 1/2" Barb Hose) - Tri-Clamps are preferred by Big Brewers due to their ease of cleaning. There are no threads to trap the dregs incurred in beer brewing. Hence IMHO, they are overkill. Besides Kombucha and Probiotic brewers do not remove the spigots after each batch as beer brewers do. To remove or place on takes two hands. One hand holds the spigot while the other hand holds the clamp and locks down the spigot in place. The Ball Lock one unscrews the nut. The more often the spigots are removed the more frequently one would have to replace the washers.
Drain(flow) rate depends upon surface area / pressure, diameter of spout, diameter of tubing, length to travel and height of fall. Velocity may be increased via pumps. When Racking or Filtering, a slower flow rate is desirable. When transferring higher velocity may induce re-oxygenation and restarting the "finished" ferment. When transferring to a Second Ferment, or those with little patience, a faster velocity is preferred. The Stainless Ball lock or Tri Clamp may change the end piece top a larger capacity to increase flow rate to increase velocity.

We highly recommend access to a Cold Room . Maintaining temperatures near freezing (36-38F) will keep your kombucha and probiotics stable. It is also recommended to have your kombucha and probiotic near freezing when force carbonating. For a new startup using a refrigerator is a convenient way to start Pictured below is a mock up of a 2.0 cubic foot refrigerator. As long as its working, it could work for you.
On the right side we picture our 7.9 Gallon Fast Ferment. We modify to accept pressurization so it may be used as a Kombucha Brite or Conical Tank. It can also be used to ferment the primary kombucha tea, to store, to serve, to force carbonate or to larger (condition) your Kombucha Tea which mellows and clears / clarify your Kombucha Tea. You may also larger your Kombucha Tea with a second cold ferment to create Kombucha Beer. (especially tasteful when using the Kombucha Saccharomyces pastorianus (bottom feeding yeasts, common in Kombucha)
One more necessity for consideration and a time saving device ,which you need for a professional presentation is a Semi-Automatic Label Applicator Machine for Self-Adhesive Labels. Kegland MFg (Australia) $799.99
One Alternative to the Labeler ... Fastlabel Beer Label Sleeves - . about 0.14 Cents a label. You print the label on your printer place your bottle in the sleeve and use a Hair Dryer to shrink wrap . Looks great. takes time but looks professional..
OPTION 5 Modified Fast Ferment (7.9 Gallon) with Stand $120.00 (shown on the right below)
Optional FastFerment Modified Conical Fermenter (shown above right) Food Grade Plastic. Modified to accept pressure thereby one may use as a Brite Tank. Force Carbonate, Chill, Mix, Store and Serve, all using one vessel. And of course you can ferment - Cold Ferment, or Larger your Kombucha Tea into a Kombucha Beer increasing the alcohol naturally. The shape of the FastFerment is ideal for Kombucha, Probiotic Sodas, and really any ferment like beer, wine or cider & mead. Its wider at the top which enhances the kombucha process (much the same as our Symbiosis Fermenters) which also creates a thermal convention which distributes the nutrients throughout the brew.
