Coolships/Koelschips Fermentation Vessels
NEW, USED, & CUSTOM OPTIONS AVAILABLE
A Coolship (from the Flemish koelschip) is a large, shallow vessel used to quickly cool wort and allow for spontaneous fermentation. In traditional brewing, hot, unfermented wort was cooled overnight using outside air temperature in a large shallow pan. During the cooling process, naturally occurring airborne yeast and microflora would inoculate the wort. In the morning it was transferred into wine barrels where the entire fermentation and aging process would take place.
The process is basically the same today but our coolships are constructed of sanitary 304 Stainless Steel. We offer a range of baskets to allow for additions of fruit, hops or other botanicals with ease. These baskets allow for greater control over the amount of time certain flavors are introduced during the process.
