Quick question, I have Pony Keg I am thinking about converting to a conical fermenter. I found an SS cone to weld on. The only thing is that I don't know if it has enough slope to be useful. It is 13" major dia, 2" minor dia, and 5" tall. Any thoughts?

Thanks

Do you have any pics? I don't think that the 5" is enough fall to be effective but if the port to draw off the beer is above the slope it would be helpful.
