Just ordered a stainless conical from spike brewing. $525. I really liked using the conicals for the 1 bbl. I was very comfortable with them and my ferm chamber has a clear door so I can avoid like struck issues. And now I can do spunding to try Ken's low O2 carbonating process and still clean things more easily than a keg after.

 

 

I know, I know, I know, I'm just trying to justify it... the fact is I wanted it.

Lol... I was looking at spike and Stout just the other day. Maybe the third time will be the charm for me. Not sure if I will get one or just a bright tank.

Please post pictures once you get it.

Isn't it, though?  That mantra didn't account for being asked to beta test.  Back then, I couldn't imagine that would ever happen.

They asked Drew and me to be beta testers

I assume with Craftmeister, like everything else.  We'll see after it arrives.

I just meant how do you rinse it out and stuff?  with a kettle I can muscle it around the sink, bang it on things, etc. and not worry about breaking anything.

yep.  When I remodelled my garage into a brewery, I put in a center floor drain with a slight slope down to it.  I won't even need to pump it out.  I should just be able to open the valve on the bottom of the fermenter and let it drain.

AFAIC, it's my favorite brewing "equipment"!  Makes things so easy.
