Default Conical Fermenter

Im thinking about getting a conical fermenter . Besides just being really cool why should I get 1? I only make 5 gallon batches right now but might increase my capacity.

What do you like about your conical fermenter? Was it worth it?

It's only worth it if you already have all of the other more important equipment like yeast propagation and temp controlled fermentation. You should buy one bigger then you need so you can grow if you need to.

I got a killer deal on a 15gal minibrew conical. I think I've got this thing figured out. The only thing Im worried about is temperature control. My house stays about 63 for most of the year. In the summer months it might get to 70 unless we have some crazy heat wave and we get into the 80's.

I've never had a problem fermenting in glass carboys. Does a conical generate more heat? I've read a lot of threads about people being concerned about heat.
