That or add options of having the fermenter fully Tri-Clamped with fittings then any pressures within reason of brewing without any worries.

Can anyone think of anything NOT great about these conicals? I am seriously considering getting one with all TC fittings as I have a bunch laying around from another project. The size is just right for 18G batches, which is about what I need to do to get 15G in the kegs. My boiler is a 25G pot. My fementation box is styrofoam, that I can heat and cool, and could be able to mod to fit this thing, especially with the shorter legs.

Anything out there that I'm overlooking? Thick steel, all TC, cheap, able to take some pressure... sounds right to me.

That's all I was looking for plus the capacity matched exactly my needs without the high cost.

I'm with you. Will get these blchmann things, which have worked fine for 5 years now, on the market. Probably even make a few buck in the process. I am so incredibly anal about sanitation, and hate arfing around with assembling all the teflon taped connections each time. I sanitize the tape too. I take the valves totally apart each time. Going to get some butterfly valves - hoping they will convince me I don't need to disassemble each time. Ball valves are only sanitary with one open-close action. After that, what happens to the crud wedged between the ball and seat over time?

I need a cleaning lady!

I promise you are going to love the Brewhemoth! I can't wait to get the temp control if that works out.

These conicals look great. Any pics of how the welds are finished on the inside?

I took outside plus inside with welds pictures of the Brewhemoth before storing it due to injuries not brewing with a POS Kodak camera, it deletes photos on the download. I'll work on it to get more photos posted.
They are great looking welds inside I can tell you this, a narrow bluing band at the welds that 600 grit wet sanded paper removed.

So they aren't sanitary welds?

It's not the light bluing I'm worried about. Are the welds at least ground smooth or can you see the bead?
