I found a used Blichmann 7 gal conical and I am tempted to jump on it. They are asking $400 may offer $375 what do you folks think. Sound like a good deal?

CONICAL FERMENTER 7 GALLON STAINLESS HOMEBREW - eBay (item 290328222894 end time Jul-04-09 05:36:53 PDT)

Get two of these instead for a couple more bucks. Ok well, a hundred more, but you can have 2 batches going.

I saw that as well. If you are going to make an offer I'd suggest offering $300 and see where it takes you. He may be itching to get rid of it and will accept and low offer. $375 is not a low ball offer and most likely will be accepted. If you are in the market for one it isn't a bad price but make sure to check to out to make sure the seals are still good and things like the racking arm still function well.
