If you are looking to improve the output and consistency of your sourdough bread, then fermentation tanks are a fantastic option. These tried and trusted machines are simple to control with a user-friendly touch screen design. A low-level probe warns you when the leaven reaches minimum level and an anti-overflow probe warns you if the fermentation tanks are at risk of overflowing.
Fermentation tanks are available in a range of sizes from 30 litres to 200 litres, depending on your production requirements. The frame and housing of these are made of durable stainless steel to withstand daily use in busy bakeries. Plus, for ease of use, the paddles and scrapers are removable for simple cleaning and these fermentation tanks also have an automatic washing cycle.
Fermentation tanks combine and ferment yeast with water and flour to encourage the enzymes in the yeast to feed and grow. The tanks slowly bubble oxygen into the yeast, which causes it to grow faster and produce more flavoursome products to bake bread. High-quality bread drives customers to your bakery. So, a fermentation tank would be a beneficial investment.
Dough fermentation tanks are used when bakeries are producing large quantities of yeast for a large batch of product. The dough fermentation occurs after the water and flour brew is mixed together to encourage yeast growth. They are usually the third step in the fermentation process.
A fermenter should be at least 20% larger than the quantity of ingredients you plan to ferment. For example, if you intend to ferment a 25-litre batch of water and flour, you should choose a tank with a capacity of at least 30 litres. By choosing a larger tank, you can ensure that you can ferment the full batch of ingredients, not just part of them. It is better to purchase a fermentation tank with too much space than to install one with too little.
