You didn't mention the size.
I'm about a week away from using this for the first time:
That counts for not breaking the bank for 15 gallons. A minibrew isn't much cheaper.
It makes up for that it doesn't have a true 60 degree cone by being able to be pressurized to carbonating levels. Any other conical is not pressurizable even though they say they are (and they mean to like 5 psi to push beer out, not to carbonate). Besides, it seems the general consensus now is that leaving the beer on a yeast cake that is spread out (ala carboy style) actually cleans up the beer faster. And, who needs to collect all of the yeast that isn't a commercial brewery? Some is just fine with me.
