Default Small Batch in a large conical

Has anyone here made 6 gallon batches in a 15 gallon conical? Does the batch come out ok? I'm about to swap my 15 gallon blichmann for a 7 gallon. I want honest feed back if you have done this before.

I rarely make 15 gallon batches and I hate to see the conical gathering dust. Especially since I know a lot of guys dream of owning one.

I've done it without any problems. I'd keep it in case you decide to do some 10 gallon batches in the future.

I have done 6 gallon batches in my Blichmann with no issues. I use it for both. There should be no issues.
