Fermenter Explosion


Recommended Posts

Yes this is true (in part) as Glenlyon mentioned, not a fermentor but a spirit tank. Using a drill not an appropriate agitator for mixing.

There have been several incidents (over 5 I can think of off the top of my head) at various small distilleries with various causes in the last 5 years that resulted in either a person being hurt, property damage, and even death. 

Discussions on many can be found on these forums.
