Strong and durable stand, designed with I-Beam and honeycomb structure.
Our Trub TrapTM is compatible with any wide mouth jar to eliminate transfers.
The Trub TrapTM consists of a 3” butterfly valve and is compatible with any wide mouth mason jar so you can remove kettle trub and fermentation trub, pitch a yeast starter, harvest yeast and bottle without disturbing or oxidizing that precious beer.
Kettle Trub (Pre-Fermentation)
Use a 24 oz. mason jar to catch trub, hops and other pre-fermentation sediment, then discard it by closing the valve and unscrewing the mason jar.
Yeast Starter & Primary
Use a 16 oz. mason jar as a yeast starter, attach and open the valve to pitch. Leave the jar attached to collect all of the primary fermentation trub.
Secondary & Yeast Harvesting
Use an 8 oz. mason jar during secondary to catch all of your viable yeast and refrigerate for later use.
The Catalyst’s tank is made from Tritan®, a medical-grade, BPA-free, polymer. This food-safe polymer is the highest quality used in a fermenter, providing the clarity of glass with the durability and convenience of plastic. This material acts as an excellent barrier against oxygen, making our tank 93% more scratch-resistant than other plastic fermenters. It is dishwasher safe and withstands temperatures of up to 230º Fahrenheit.

"GREAT TIME SAVER"
Using the same container for primary, secondary and bottling there is less cleanup time. The system works very well with gravity and no transferring saves even more time. Very satisfied so far!!

This is the best investment. I am all for all in one equipment and love the Catalyst for that reason. Made bottling so much easier!

Easily the best fermenter I’ve ever used. Easy to use easy to clean up . It was really awesome to watch all the stages of fermentation. I love the trub catch.

"CATALYST REVIEW - MAKING WINE!"
I'm using my Catalyst to make 5.5 gallons of wine. The Catalyst made the fermentation process and racking a breeze!!!! It saved me hours of racking and re-racking time. I liked it so much I bought a second!

"LOVE LOVE LOVE IT"
This fermenter is a god-send. Purchased when I needed to brew four 5-gallon batches in a 2-month period. Side-by-side with a glass carboy (and plastic bucket), the Catalyst is hands down easier to manage (and clean) and the one-apparatus solution is applauded. Considering buying another...and would do so without hesitation.

"SO FAR, SO GOOD!"
I received my Catalyst as a birthday gift from my wife and I just brewed my first beer in 4 years. It's very well put together, the cover and strap are super convenient and I love that I can already see all the sediment filling up the jar at the bottom. Looking forward to NOT having to rack to a secondary to get the crud out of my beer!
