Im working on a yeast brink that I will use to incubate yeast and use O2 to push it into the stream of cooled oxygenated wort inline heading to fermenter. The chambers are on wheels and the connections unplug from behind so I can roll the chamber closer to my boil kettle. The fermenters stay in the chambers and are cleaned in place with a spray ball.
Stealing part of this for my setup. Thanks for the idea. Your setup is ....words fail me.

I went down to Glacier last week and pickd up there last in stock 18.75 gallon conical complete with triclamps on sale for 995.00. Now I need to figure out all the neat fittings for it. I'm good for now on temp controls, seeing its snowing right now. By summer I'll get some kind of cooler.

I wish I was close to Glacier Tanks they have allot of cool brew stuff. Would have saved me a bunch on shipping too.

Great thread. Glacier is not to far from me and i have been endlessly thinking about how to incorporate conicals into my brewhouse, financially and pyshically.

Id be curious to hear from others, specifically those with larger sized (1-3bbl) Stout tanks and how they like them. Are there advantages of top vs side portals?

Maxout- you seem to have some nice toys in your brewhouse, im quite impressed. Do you have any other pics of your nice stuff? Im always looking for new ways to upgrade my system as it grows in size.
