sorry to beat this dead horse, but i'm very interested in this and want to understand completely so i can implement on my own conical.

so you screw the collection device onto the bottom of the conical to collect all the trub and such so that you're left with only clean yeast in the bottom of the cone.

is that correct?

what is the advantage of doing it this way vs. just running the trub off through the bottom until you hit clean yeast and then collecting in a bucket at that point?

thanks for the info!!

No, thankfully my parents gave us dissimilar names. It looks like he might be buying my old all grain setup once I've made my new one, so he may sign up here sooner or later.
Your conical is damn sweet, I've found a distributor here in Canada for the same brand.

Working on getting my first 15 gallon plastic connical into action and just got my Stockham 1-1/2" 3 piece ball vavles just like the one Spotted Dog Brewing is using. The problem I'm having is the valves are incredibly tought to open and close, any suggestions?

Once it's all connected to fermenter it gets easier to open/close, a little more leverage! Try adding some keg lube:-)

Great project! What kind of sealant did you use to assemble your yeast catcher?
You can get a SS coil chiller from NY Brew Supply for essentially the same price as a copper coil

These are what I use in the plastic conicals shown here. (as well as some 110 gallon conicals at the brewery) they work great!
