I just received my stainless conical from http://www.conical-fermenter.com and I must say that I am extremly satisfied with the craftmanship! I ordered the 7.3 with the thermowell. First of all it was boxed up really well (see pics below) and second the info sheet provided is very detailed. If there is any flaw what-so-ever, it is the welds on the thermowell are not as clean as the output valves (see pic below). With that said, they are still really good! Plus John was extremly helpfull and answered any questions I had. Here are the pics!

"NICE"!!

That may be my next step... It will make my neighbor happy as I'll probably give him some of my equipment, so he can get started brewing.

First though, I've got to get one of Johns Kettles...

Great to see the pictures and quality opinions on the work. Sure looks spectacular!

Cheers and Happy brewing
