Looks like it would be easy to add a cylinder on top of this to make it twice as large. Will that be something available in the future?

The dimensions are 16" in diameter and roughly 32" in overall height.

Mike, that has been discussed. We have also talked about making new tooling for different sizes as well.

Is there an opening in the lid for additions (hops, yeast, ect)? Such as a corny keg lid built into the conical lid?

The hole lid can be removed and there is also a hole for the airlock

Correct, the bottom will have a 90 degree elbow with a 1.5" dump valve on the bottom.

Pressurizing is something we still need to test. How many PSI are you looking for?

Im happy to hear about the 1.5" dump valve. Ive read several reviews of smaller valves getting stuck as the trub gets very thick/hard. Sounds like this unit will be able to drop trub/hops easily!

If the unit held 2-3 PSI, then you could use C02 to push the beer to your keg. Sounds like gravity feeding will the way you transfer with this one?

Without testing yet, I think it should be able to do 2-3 PSI. We've tested with gravity and it only takes a minute to drain.
