Well the right conical finally showed up. I hit ace hardware and picked up some parts and wala ferminter. I sealed it and added a fitting on top for an airlock or to add co2 tank to push beer out. Just put a 5 gal batch in it to try it out. Should be drinking it in few weeks. Heres a pic

Simple really took some rubber "D" weather strip took screws out put the weather strip on the inner edge of ring and ran a bead of silicone around outer edge next to weather strip and reinstalled with scews. Then used same weather strip on lid edge to seal when closed. Since its rubber and non porous no worries with cleaning it. Then installed valve on lid for air lock hose that goes into bucket or to the c02 tank. Took about an hour to put whole thing together including racking port ect. I plan on putting casters on stand so i can role it around.

I guess I am not entirely sure what you are referring to. It seems pretty solid, I stood on it. Would I put cross braces above my bottom 2x2 box?

Not being all that much larger then the conical I'm not sure it would need it unless you used some really thin plywood...

It is 1/2". With the reinforcement on it now, it help my weight fine when I stood on it. I am about 205. We are going to do an overnight test with a star san solution. Testing structure and seals.
