Been fermenting in that keg for years. Bought it "new" as a second from Keggle Brewing
They seem to have gone up in price a bit, but I recall paying around $250. Basically gets me into stainless for way less than a conical, will fit in my chest freezer after putting an enormous collar on it (see picture above), can do closed transfers, and is relatively easy to clean with a PBW soak.
Difficulty: Must have it in the chest freezer before pumping 11 gallons of wort into it. Solution. Put wheels on chest freezer, and roll it over to the brew stand.
Blow off valve is as easy as a gas disconnect and a bit of hose. Plenty of head space and zero issues with the tall geometry (at this volume).
