Nice! Sounds like he's making and selling these on a continual basis...
Maybe a couple of those are in my future?
Saved seller...

looks pretty good, not sure 269 is in my budget at this moment, but am anxiously awaiting reviews.

Is this the same guy from conical-fermenter.com

http://conical-fermenter.com/product...al-fermenters/

I just bought one and I have my first brew in there; I love it but paid more for the one with the thermowell than that price.

It looks like the same equipment as "stout tanks"

(ships in mid january) in the sub title but not in the description, looks like a recipe for bad feedback, esp. looking at the "need it by xx/xx/xx" estimated shipping.

I dunno, he's got the feedback to back it up, seems to have sold a fair few of them. They look absolutely IDENTICAL to the Stout Tanks conicals, even down to the Chinese letters on the ball valve handles. I'm guessing they're from the same supplier. If he had 14.5 gallon ones, I'd be seriously interested. (Actually not really, since Stout Tanks will have them in January too, and the ones with the large side arms are too wide for my fermentation chamber...)

This may be of some interest:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/thou...menter-193803/

I had a similar question. This is from the same supplier only with a different size fermenter. The guy from stout tanks and kettles says that the SS gauge is much smaller and that the thermowell is attached using weldless fittings (ie: non sanitary).

I say that if he decides to provide these low-priced fermenters without (or with properly welded thermowell) it would be one heck of a good deal!

Hope this helps!
