i heard brehemoth can go to 160 PSI or something crazy like that.. ( don`t quote me just trying to remember ) and yes it does look way better and also has the optional site glass for the top lid.. trip clamps are pretty cheap.. and in the long run i think brewhemoth would be my choice caise i do have to look at it everyday lol.. and stouts is kinda ugly..

they need a domed lid and they would look 100x better lol

I'm still very torn on which to go with. Part of the reason I wish I could have some better communication from the companies.

I have a stout 14.5 gallon short fermenter, and am very happy with it, and with my experience with John watt. The welds are the nicest I have seen, and the polished finish inside cleans up so easily it is sinful. Being able to pop the whole lid off is a real bonus, in my mind, so you can see all the way inside. The long build time is a drag, but he has some stuff available for "special order in stock"

We have two Stout conicals and love them. You can carry the bucket and fill the conical. It would help with aeration when you pour it in.

If you think the stout are ugly and the BH looks good then you obviously have never seen either one in person.
The BH is the ugliest conical on the market. None if it is polished and the bolted on steel strut legs scream "built in someone's garage."

With that said. I do have a BH and I like it. Got it before the huge price jump and it does what I need it to do. But if I had to buy one now or wanted to buy another one, it would be a stout.

Yah I saw the welds on the brehmeth and even the penrose kettle and it doesn't look as near nice as the stout or others I've seen. That was also another concern.. Right now after further looking and research I might go with stout butterfly valve 27 gallon

fwiw.. I've been talking alot with John recently. He thought he had replied to my previous email and apologized for the delay. Good guy to talk with and has been answering all my questions. With the butterfly valves, they will be available late April.

yea. I'm going order one of the 14.5 gallon ones for now to see how I like it. I'll get the butterfly valve add-on when it becomes available and as long as I like the conical I'll order a few more at the same time.
