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 your favorite piece of brewing equipment for many years to come.
2” T.C. Dump Valve
With an oversized 2" bottom port, you can dry hop 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 you may need to 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 so you won’t crush your fingers.
The standard thread-in feet allow you to adjust the stance of the conical to compensate for uneven flooring. Quickly and easily adjust the fermenter if your home brewery isn't completely level. The feet can be swapped out with our high-quality casters at any time.

Purchase the base model X1 Uni at the most affordable price and upgrade as you go. All of the accessories included with the X1 Uni+ can be purchased separately whenever you're ready to take your fermentation process to the next level.
Flex Chamber - Trub Separator & Yeast Harvester
The Flex Chamber attaches directly to the dump valve and can be used for dropping trub, harvesting yeast, and many other tasks. Ball lock adapters can be attached to the threaded ports on either side, allowing you to connect oxygenation or carbonation stones. Or flush the pressurizable Flex Chamber with CO2 and use it to inject hops and other additions into the fermenter.
Pressure Pack with Clear Float Technology
The Pressure Pack features our unique floating racking tube that can be used for taking samples, keg transfers, or serving finished beer. This innovative feature draws beer from the top down, which means you’re always pulling the clearest, most sediment-free beer possible. Using pressure to draw a sample from the floating dip tube will also eliminate the tiny bit of oxygen that would be injected into your beer every time the traditional sample valve is opened.
Glycol-ready X1 CoolStix™
Drop in the X1 CoolStix for an easy-to-use, innovative solution for maintaining fermentation temps. Fits perfectly with the Pressure Pack's 1.5" T.C. port, or you can replace the Uni's 4" T.C. port with a 4" to 1.5" T.C. reducer. Cycle cooling solution through the CoolStix using either an IceMaster Glycol Chiller or a BrewBuilt Chiller Pump Kit placed in ice water.
Pressure Fermentation Kit
Ferment under pressure with this two-piece Pressure Fermentation Kit that includes a Ball Lock Spunding Valve and a professional 1 BAR tri-clamp PRV. The spunding valve features a 0-15 psi pressure gauge and a hand adjustable blowoff to dial in your desired pressure setting. The pro PRV provides added safety when fermenting extra-large or high gravity batches where krausen may reach the lid of the fermenter. Fermenting under pressure will reduce esters and fusel alcohol production, and enable you to ferment lagers at ale fermentation temperatures. Not to mention your beer is already carbonated when it’s finished fermenting!
Rolling Caster Set
Easily move your conical around the brewery by adding the heavy-duty caster set. Even an empty fermenter can be taxing on your back when lifted or carried. Use these to roll from sanitizing to kettle transfer to keg transfer to cleaning with minimal effort.
