Hobby Beverage Equipment Company Minibrew 15 Gallon Fermenter

Pros: No need to rack to secondary. Easy to remove trub and yeast cake.
Cons: The ball valves are very easy to cross thread on the nipple when first assembling or after cleaning. Care must be taken. I keep extra nylon nipples on hand just in case.
Recommended? YesIt works. The plastic is not particularly prone to scratching and is easy to clean and sanitize. I use One Step cleanser and Star San, or just boiling water to sanitize the inside. I have fermented nearly a dozen batches in the minibrew, and true to their marketing, I have had no problem with contamination from either the plastic cone or the unsealed lid.
This works exactly as advertised. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to my friends who harvest and reuse yeast, or who are just dying for a conical.
