Default Separatory Funnels as Fermenter

As the title suggests...

Does anyone have any experience using these as fermenters?

http://www.labdepotinc.com/Product_Details~id~515~pid~120.aspx

I think it would be really cool to rig up a bank of two or three of these on a board and put it in my fermentation chamber.

Particularly for doing small batch meads/ciders or blending beers.

Any input would be appreciated.

A slash is missing from the link.
It would have to be very small batches since the largest funnel is 5L and costs over $200. I can get gallon and half gallon jugs for under $10 at a LHBS for small batches.
I think it would look cool and it would work, but I think that the cost is too much and they are too small for what you're planning on using them for.

Sorry about the bad link...

Also, I know the 5L option is $200+, has anyone found a cheaper version?

2.5 gallon cone bottom tank $34.00

Northern Brewers V-Vessel $200 ~6 U.S. Gallons

Sorry missed your idea of putting them in a fermentation chamber so the 6 gallon wont fit. The first 2.5 gallon may be questionable.
