I spoke with josh today, they won't have anyone to take live calls on Friday. He said when you go to checkout select extra fitting and qty of extra fitting then there should be a place for comments. Describe what u want there as best as possible. He said an additional fitting for a thermowell are very common and are usually just an additional 1.5 inch fitting right above the cone/ 5 gallon mark and that's how I should try and describe in the notes. I'm thinking I may get another fitting on the top identical to the one that comes standard and is used as a blow of port so when doing pressurized ferments I can have the spunding valve on one and the other fitting with a cap that has a pressure relief valve like you find on top of a ball lock keg. If that ends up being a dumb idea I can always just cap it and not utilize it.

You could always order it without the chiller and if you decide you want it buy it later. Not sure if the non tc version can be retrofitted with the chiller (honestly I haven't even looked at the non tc) but the tc ones it's a drop in unit.
That being said I like the idea of the chiller since I'm ordering two I'm planning on using a small chest freezer like others have done and using two pumps for each conical. Should help with overall space that's used.

Well, I think my decision has been made thanks to this sale! I was originally thinking of converting sanke's to fermenters but found the Brewhemoth a little over a week ago. I was just in the research phase but spoke with the boss today and she said I can get it. Selling point was that I would buy it but can't use it until I sell off enough other brewing stuff to pay for it. Already sold some stainless pipe fittings that I was going to build a RIMS with and plan on selling off three sanke's, some carboys, 3 gallon and 2.5 gallon kegs (kegs are to make room for more five gallon ones). Brewhemoth, here I come! I would buy two but she would probably divorce my ass!

This is Dale from the Brewhemoth. Sorry to not answer any emails lately, I have been on vacation the past two weeks. The biggest advantage to the 3/8 chiller is it requires a smaller pump. There are many advantages to that, one being that the heat load added to your chilling water is less. Extra fittings are easy, add the number of extra fittings you want, and in comments section describe what and where, Sully (our welder) will call if he is not sure what you want.

In for two with additional fittings for a thermowell and sampling valve!

And seriously, the convenience of a sampling valve for taking gravity readings can't be underestimated. That and you can have your very own cask ale at home if you do pressurized fermenations!

WOOHOO! Just submitted my order and couldn't be happier! 2-3 weeks ago I started thinking about a conical, found the Brewhemoth a week ago, found out about the sale yesterday and today I was able to purchase my first conical with a $160 savings! I wanted to buy two of them but don't have the room/budget right now.

Ugh! I've had my Brewhemoth for two years and am so tempted to pick up another today. If a new grain mill wasn't higher on my list of needs, I would have ordered one already!
