Updating our iconic series of Chronical fermenters is not something we took lightly. The Chronical was a product we launched in the earliest days of Ss Brewtech. It, along with the Brewmaster Edition that would join a few years later, have formed a core product line that has elevated the standard of what home brewers have come to expect from a cylindro-conical vessel, and what home brewed beer could be.
So, with a blank sheet of paper, we went to work designing the ultimate Chronical fermenter. Priority number one was to continue on our mission to elevate every home product we offered to sanitary connections and valves. For the Chronical 2.0 we addressed that by adding a new welded 3/4" TC sampling port, and paired that with an all-new sampling valve based on our Pure Flow sanitary technology. Secondly, we redesigned the lid to use the Unitank's lid-mounted cooling coil system, which removes the side-mounted weldless ports from the Chronical BME. The Chronical 2.0's lid-mounted cooling coils extend further down into the fermenter, enabling users to ferment partial batch sizes.
Although Chronical 2.0 is a massive evolutionary leap forward, we've also stayed true to the product line's core. The full-width lid, a revolution when the original Chronical launched is retained, the pro inspired 60° cone, and bottom dump port is still here. And last but not least, the ever-popular neoprene jacket from the Chronical Brewmaster Edition is standard on Chronical 2.0. This means that every Chronical 2.0 has a coil and jacket included as standard.
