Default eBay Stainless Conical for cheap!

Hello all,

I don't know if this is the right place for this, but I came across these 7 gallon conical's on ebay for $229.00. That is a really cheap price compared to what I have seen in the stores. I can't afford one right now, but if someone was looking to buy one and wanted to buy 2 for the price of 1 and give it to me....I guess I couldn't refuse....could I????

Here's the link...

CONICAL FERMENTER 7 GALLON STAINLESS HOMEBREW - eBay (item 290273829789 end time Nov-11-08 17:40:05 PST)

The price is great but I only see 1 available for that price.
Looks like a knockoff besides the boxes in the background
look like Chinese or some other out of country cardboard.
Future replacement parts being available may be a problem, feel lucky
and able to make modifications if they are needed to keep it working
a DIY person then it would make a affordable conical.
Maybe they are testing our market and if they sell a rush of them will come
into the country. Blichmann with their crazy high prices better look out.

I'd say go for it. it has standard fittings and parts. Nothing funky about it. Hell, it is a better design than the Blichmann, in one respect, The stand is a stand alone unit. This is a nice feature for cleaning, you can remove the fermenter. S.

That seller has them available quite frequently. I think there may even be some owners on this site - might be able to find some feedback on them.

Questions; are they available in larger volumes like 13+ for 10 gallon batches and 18+ for 15 gallon batches?

The 14.5 gallon Blichmann I've been told will hold 14.5 gallons to the brim before adding cover and clamp, totally useless for a 15 gallon net volume after a couple trub and yeast dumps. Blichmann's next handy size up is 27 gallons a way oversized monster before looking at the crazy additional asking price of it. Try fitting it in your spare frig. Maybe these 27 to 42 gallon Blichmann's are for the Jay Leno club he belongs to, "the more money than brains club and he's the club president". That he has said numerous times on his Late Night Show. I bet he's worth a few bucks.

This would be a good time to hear from other members on this new affordable conical besides the availability and price if they came in different gallon capacities.

Blichmann at 7, 14.5 then to a 27 then add their extra high high dollar dome to get 42 gallons capacity from a 27 gallon conical is just a cheap quick fix for a already high profit item.
Blichmann has priced themselves out of my shopping list.

Wait for one of these:

Is the seller from PA??? If so I think there are some folks on here that have them and said good things. I'll have to do a search, but I asked about them several months ago.

The seller is from PA. I've been wondering about a few of the products that this seller has had up on Ebay in the past.

I have one from that guy. It's not bad. Can't beat the price. Don't use it much. Doesn't fit in my fridge for optimum fermentation temp control. Don't waste your time/money on his HLT's. Paper thin junk. Sent mine back!
