I like the idea of a decent conical for cheap... A little overkill for me now but if I ever goto 10 gallon batches... Would look pretty cool to have 5 of these lined up on a big rack!
I'm using PVC parts for mine. I figured if the whole conical was plastic, what's the big deal with the valve being plastic.
I do make sure to thoroughly clean the fermentor out immediately after use and spray down with starsan for storage tho to minimize anything that might start on the plastic bits.
