Trust me I've considered the plastic conicals but I'm using plastic buckets now and realizing the disadvantages of plastic. My biggest issue is still having the ability of holding pressure for carbonating, transfers and storage. Price is an issue and sure I could buy several plastic conicals and throw them out if they become infected but overall I'm not interested in the hassle of cleaning and worrying about the plastic with that much beer in them. I've seen people using the plastics have infections on the first batch. The choice between stainless and plastic was a bridge I crossed a long time ago. Unfortunately there is not many choices for 1bbl stainless conicals most are a little small and the others are too big. I'm all ready invested into this hobby and the Glacier tanks should hold their value if I decide to get out of the hobby some day.

That's true, I replied before I saw how mind numbingly bad ass your set up was. Stick with the stainless.

Default References of Glacier Tanks Buyers

[QUOTE=MaxOut;4503374]I am in the market for a 1 BBL conical fermenter and leaning towards the Glacier Tank 50 Gallon Uni Tank I was looking for some input on their tanks and hoping someone has one and can share their thoughts good, bad or ugly. Any input is welcome as I have never used a conical. Thanks in advance for your comments.

Max Out, have attached partial list of customers who have purchased GlacierTanks Tanks of all sizes including BBT's, FM's, Brewhouses and Water storage Tanks

I'm looking at the Glacier 50 gallon. does anyone know if there's a consumer upright freezer that this would fit in? There used to be some 25 cubic foot ones around (commercial fridges are too expensive)

Quote:
50 Gl Fermenter is 1600mm x 600mm (63"H x 23.7"D) 25Gl is (54"x 20")...Hope this helps...Thanks
It would be a lot cheaper to go $1500 conical + $1000 freezer than $3000 jacketed fermenter and a $1500 glycol chiller. In fairness, the $3000 one is 65 gallons (versus 50 gallons) but I don't need 65 gallons.

Link to that is here: http://www.glaciertanks.com/Products-Conical_Fermenters.html

Also, just saw this on youtube for your entertainment:
