Are you looking for stainless steel or plastic. If you're not looking for too "Giant" then Toledo Metal Spinning has SS hoppers that you can fabricate into very nice conical. See Yuri Rage's conical build. If you want commercially built SS and have the $, Used Brewery Equipment Specialists - North American Brewing Systems has all kinds of used equipment coming in and out but the smallest I've ever seen was a 4 barrel fermenter that they would piece out. If you want plastic go with the aforementioned USplastics. I saw a ~45gallon plastic fermenter that worked well for the brewer.

Say I get something thats food grade plastic? will that have any affect on the beer or temp of the beer. planning on creating a lager or does it just come down to preference and price?

Tank Depot is a sponsor (advertising for the site)water tanks, plastic tanks, septic tanks

Looks to be tanks you need to modify to use, but at a decent price.

First of all how big is "giant"? and second... how are you planning on cooling a "giant" tank down to lagering temp?

Most commercial ferm tanks of any real size are stainless steel and jacketed with are then electronically cooled with an automated glycol pump.

If you're not going to go with a fully jacketed tank, you would need to cool the tank itself down to lagering temps and again... depending on what you mean by "giant" will dictate how you're going to have to pull that off.
