Sure you can. They make conicals for 5 gallon batches to much, much larger batches.

Even better for a conical because it is much easier to clearify the mead while leaving the goop behind. Actually if you can drop the spent yeast and goop from the bottom of the conical periodically, why would you have to rack off multiple times?

You rack to move the liquid off the top of the gunk on the bottom. The whole point of a conical is to reverse the process. Remove the gunk from the bottom without moving the liquid.

Someday... someday...
