Fermentation Tank


Brewing water minerals

Your yeast needs these trace aspects of water to reproduce at the right rate. While treating the water used for fermentation is crucial, you don't want to completely sterilize it or you'll definitely have problems with your yeast.

Yeast quality

Speaking of yeasts, of all the factors that affect the rate of beer fermentation, yours is just the biggest one. Whether it's from a yeast starter or you're tinkering with your yeast from the previous fermentation process, you need to choose thoroughly. The stronger the fermented beer, the more yeast needs to be used. The ability of your yeast to replicate rapidly will ultimately determine the final rate at which fermentation occurs.

Wort nutrients

These nutrients help the yeast make proper adjustments during fermentation. Grains like barley will usually have the best nutritional content, but if you're using something like rice or corn, you might want to include it in a yeast nutritional supplement to make sure the yeast has enough nutrients.



Whatever the pressure, your yeast will take a lot of cues from the ambient temperature. Keeping your yeast warm is also a problem, as this can energize the yeast as well as produce unnecessary substances such as fusel wine.
