Yuri Rage did it - here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/diy-conical-fermenter-14855/#post138881

Good luck if you take on the challenge.

Those look nice, what are you thinking for a lid/sealing, and spigot? That is a pretty good price, $815 for 5 12.2 gal conicals which is about all the fermentation space I need...

Edit: for the record, when i clicked reply that link wasn't there...

welding skills yourself

I still use Sanke Kegs
They work well as fermenters
Even if hard to clean

Default diy conical

I have talked to a salesperson from Toledo. They can do anything you want, from adding a triclover ferule on the bottom and side for a racking port, to a complete ready to use model complete with latches. If I remember, there price was around 100 to 150 bucks less than a comparable model from B3 or Blichman. Can't recall what they did for a stand, or if it even was included.

We had a haiku showdown on another thread (see link in signature) thought I should share the joy.
