The Catalyst Fermentation System (6.5 Gallons) is an innovative piece of homebrewing equipment that simplifies the fermentation process, making it easier than ever to make great beer at home.

We've taken features seen only in high-end, professional brewing equipment and integrated them into a compact homebrewing system that is both functional and elegant.

With The Catalyst, we’ve not only solved issues of current homebrewing equipment, but we’ve also introduced innovative and practical features, making it a convenient tool for first-time brewers and experts alike.
We believe form and function are equally important. Which is why we not only focused on making a product that works, but one that looks good too. The Catalyst introduces elegant functionality and good design into the world of home brewing, so you have equipment worth showing off rather than being hidden in a closet.

The Catalyst’s tank is made from Tritan®, a medical-grade, BPA-free, polymer. This food-safe polymer is the highest quality material ever 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, makes our tank 93% more scratch-resistant than other plastic fermenters and is even dishwasher safe, withstanding temperatures of up to 230º Fahrenheit. We’ve also incorporated removable, 100% silicone gaskets to make sanitation and cleaning a breeze.
Also check out our NEW cover for The Catalyst, it blocks out 100% of UV light, has integrated carrying straps and a viewing window to check on your beer: The Catalyst Cover

First time brewer

I enjoyed the product. I wish there had been more clear instructions on when to do jar dumps. My only suggestion for improvement would be to create a Silicone “jar” that you could squeeze slightly to allow the trub/yeast not to spill out when dumping the jar. If you could squeeze the jar just slightly before closing the butterfly valve, that would create enough void once you started unscrewing the jar that it would return to normal shape and keep all the contents in the jar. Thus getting rid of one of the only downfalls of this system.

Dope Fermentation, y’all!

This thing is dope, night and day difference from other brews! Love the butterfly valve, genius. I would recommend using a blow off valve during primary, especially if you are a yeast starter type! Yeehaw! Thanks yall

Fermenter works great

This fermenter is awesome. I’ve only made one batch and had only 2 ounces of hops. So not much trub. Actually took 2 jars off the bottom. My only issue is that my bottling wand did not fit the tubing for the bottling attachment. No other tubing would fit the attachment. I bottled with the tubing and clamp provide which worked out ok. Beer was good.

Love It!

The Catalyst is everything Craft-A-Brew advertises. It's easy to durable and easy to clean. It eliminates a need to move to secondary. It makes trub removal and yeast harvesting easy. I am very happy with my choice to purchase a Catalyst!

Great Invention!

Wow! What a great new way to make beer. Just finished first batch and cleanup was so much easier than before. Can't wait to start making larger batches!
