Really No set schedule:-/ I've had beer sit in fermenter after the first dump for 2-3 weeks after!!

I wish I could keep up:-) but I do try to go back to back. I have the 15 gallon fermenter for smaller batch's that sits right next to the 30 gallon, and it's empty right now:-/

Any reason why you do not make the hole wider and use the built in mounting recess in the conical? Would the stand have to be too high with the fittings that are attached?

I'm lazy:-) use to be a 15 gallon in its place. Upgraded one of the 15 gallons to a 30 gallon! Plus gives me an option to put 15 gallon in either hole, I store fermenting table under the basement steps:-).
