What are the advantages of stainless steel wine fermentation tanks?
In recent years, more and more oak barrels have been replaced by stainless steel fermentation vessels in wine production. So what are the advantages of stainless steel wine fermentation equipment?

The stainless steel wine fermentation tank is an inert container, cast from stainless steel, with good airtightness and strong corrosion resistance. Why is the use of stainless steel barrels more and more popular? 

To a large extent, this is due to the durability and sustainability of stainless steel fermentation tanks. The service life of oak barrels is very short. Generally, the service life is three to five years. 

As the number of uses increases, the oak barrels will gradually lose their original oak aroma, and the acidity of the wine will gradually erode the oak barrels. Compared with the two, the service life of the stainless steel fermentation tank is much longer.

The volume of stainless steel fermentation tanks is generally larger. In the case of brewing the same volume of wine, stainless steel fermentation tanks can save purchase costs than oak barrels. 

This is one of the reasons why some wineries choose stainless steel fermentation tanks to make wine. 

At the same time, compared with oak barrels that bring oak flavor to wine, some winemakers believe that stainless steel barrels are neutral and tasteless, and can well retain the original personality and characteristic flavor of wine grapes, and the wine produced is more pure and natural.

Although the small gaps of oak barrels can provide a micro-oxidation environment for the wines that are aged in them, the rate of oxidation is relatively uncontrollable, which is a big challenge for winemakers. 

Stainless steel fermenter with good airtightness are different. Their airtightness allows winemakers to grasp the oxidation speed of wine, and perform moderate oxidation according to the taste of wine tasting, which can more accurately monitor the quality of wine. 

In addition, the smooth surface of the stainless steel fermentation tank is easy to clean, which can reduce the influence of the residual substances in the previous winemaking. This is one of the reasons for the sustainable use of the stainless steel fermentation tank.
