Default stainless conicals in Oregon

I saw this on CL in Portland this past week. They look like the ebay ones, btu he also has the 14.5 gallon option. I am tempted to pull the trigger, but I don't know if I can justify it when I have a small army of keg fermenters.

Thoughts from the crowd?

Wow, I'd love to get a SS conical. Seems too good to be true though...

Anyone else's thoughts?

These look like the ones on ebay that are sold from time to time new for the same price.

difference is he has the 14.5 gallon ones that I have never seen. Also has a thermowell on the 5 gallon, and that I have not seen on the ebay ones either. I'll have to look up how far Stafford is from Portland. MAybe I can take a look before buying

Stafford is south of I-205, just below Wanker's Corner.

You can't make this stuff up, people!

Will they hold pressure? If so it might be a good deal, otherwise happy to stick with a 15 gallon Corny for closed ferments and super easy CO2 tranfers.

Also like this "I designed these tanks to meet my exacting criteria." It looks like every other conical imported from China, who is he fooling?

Hi,

I am the one selling these conicals. Here are the answers to your questions:

- Are they the same ones you have seen on E-bay before now? No.

- Would they be okay to brew in? Yes. I have had no issues at all with them. They work great. If you have specific concerns, please ask.

- Will they hold pressure? No. They are not designed to hold pressure. I would recommend using the conical for primary fermentation, and take advantage of the bottom outlet to drop out the trub and yeast. If you want to carbonate naturally, you could drain the beer into your corney keg and seal it up when the specific gravity gets to where you need it for natural carbonation.

- These conicals are a sanitary design. Sanitary valves, sanitary welds, no threads. They are not the same as "every other conical." They cost a little more as a result.

I'll be glad to answer any other questions you may have.

I am putting together a website that will have more information about them. When they are all ready, in about 3 or 4 weeks, I'll be shipping them to people who have contacted me through Craigslist or the website.

This website will have more information as I get it built out (it is still "under construction" so please excuse its look right now) - stainless steel homebrew conical fermenter.

Cheers!
