FLEX+ Conical Fermenter Spike Brewing
Introducing the new Spike FLEX+! The FLEX+ was designed to be the most versatile, upgradable and longest lasting small batch fermenter on the market. With currently over 20 accessories (and counting) you'll never run out of toys to bling your FLEX out with. The FLEX+ is the big brother to the standard FLEX. Out of the box it features an upgraded tri-clamp racking arm, tri-clamp butterfly valve and upgraded high-pressure lid and clamp that can handle up to 15psi.

The Flex+ includes a tri-clamp rotatable racking arm as a standard item. This allows you to rotate the racking arm as you drain your Flex+. You’ll start draining in the upwards position and rotate until the beer stops running clear. The Flex+ comes with a racking arm comes that has an indicator so you can easily see what orientation the racking arm is at from the outside.
The Flex+ features a 4” tri-clamp welded onto the lid. Why? Modularity. This allows you to attach our drop in temp control coil, clear cap and allows for easy hop additions. Our temp control coil extends deep into the Flex so both full batches (5-6gal) and half batches (2.5-3gal) can be efficiently cooled. The 4” port also allows for unmatched simplicity when adding hops during your fermentation. Gone are the days of removing the entire lid which allows oxygen in and also opens the door for infection.
Temp control is arguably the most important aspect of brewing. Proper temperature control can eliminate off flavors and manipulate flavor profiles that different yeasts produce at different temps. Up until this point, precise fermentation temp control was only available on larger more expensive fermenters – not anymore. Our full temp control package includes the temp coil, insulated tubing, quick connect tube fittings, cooling pump, insulated jacket, and dual temp controller. We also have a heater available for us cold weather brewers. All that’s needed for cooling is a cold water source! Many people use a cooler with ice, fridge with a glycol reservoir or even a glycol chiller!
