If you can rip off the three legs each leg welded at 6 different locations or 18 total of 3/4" long like the first edition Brehemoth's plus ordered with 100% TC fitting, one was tested over 150 psi I paid $459.99, your on your own with shopping around. Ask for legs to be welded like the first edition.
"Keep it under $650", I bet Dale and Josh can make that happen with money left over this including throwing in the internal cooling coil option plus their free shipping of over 22 gallon capacity.
A triangle frame like a piano moving cart offset supports bolted at the ferms legs allowing the ferms legs only 1/2" clearance off the ground still able to fit in a fridge if required. I made a quick 2 x 4 cart for testing, ferms legs were 7" above the ground plus filled to the brim and it wheeled around with ease, the lowered version out of channel steel will be more stable and lower. Wanting a lower capacity ferm costing more, look somewhere else it's you money.

well i have been researching conicals half of today i think

im leaning to the brewhemoth now... im going to contact them see about some custom alterations and see what happens. most of what i would like changed is pretty simple so i assume they can do it easy enough. If they say yes I will be the newest brewhemoth customer... the price just can't be beat. i like the stout tanks conicals as well but they have that wierd top that just turns me off. i like the idea of a TC top on the brewhemoth. just wish it was 6-8" instead of 4" but oh well what can ya do?

Spoke with Josh today from Brewhemoth and answered all of my questions about using a brewhemoth and worked with me to have the dump valve be a custom version of a 45 degree instead of the straight down one. He is ordering the 45 triclover fitting to custom weld it on and just charging me the difference in price from that part vs the one they normally use.

Ordered the brewhemoth with chiller today and it should be here by the end of July

can't wait to get my first batches into it. im not sure I will be able to get all the gear assembled in time to use the chiller so I might see how making a 15 gallon batch of EdWorts Apfelwein goes for its first run and carb that for some summer parties

Default cleaning the Brewhemoth?

I just sent them an e-mail as well asking about how easy it is to clean these, seems like a 4 inch hole in the top would make it rather difficult. Has anyone tried to clean one of these?

Well I won't see mine until end of July... But I'm not too worried by the 4" top. While I would prefer 6"+ on top... 4" is basically the same as a corny so it seems like it shouldn't be that bad.

Yeah I'm going to build a CIP system as well. I'm planning on building it so it's a circulating tri-clover attachable system. It might run me a few dollars but I live in a condo so compact and low water usage is key.

Here is my CIP solution (parts were all obtained from stpats, mcmaster carr, and amazon PM me for details):

I'm using a 1/3HP pump for this job and it seems to be working well thus far.

thats exactly what i was thinking of. it might cost a bit more but i can use the pump to move both the cleaning solution and also the chiller solution for using the chiller in the brewhemoth as well.

also my CC was charged for the brewhemoth today i wonder if that means it is shipped?
