Most brewers I know have expanded to larger capacities beyond those 14.5 gallon ferms the 22 gallon Brewhemoth fits this need as well in price.
I worked with a POS keg I rolled a cone on and tigged together, it will be given to a friend starting out.
With the great price Dale and Josh are offering plus built like a tank what's to hate?
I looked at a $799 on sale 27 gallon ferm long ago, I would of felt fleased if purchased as I didn't like it's features, "weld-free" fittings a PITA take apart plus the large $28 seal replacements more to go wrong or leak over time JMO.
Good thing I waited then these 22 gallon units became available, great timing I can have two I like vs one I would not like plus around 40 gallons net.
I will tell it like it is: I have the one you mentioned with the weld-free PITA fittings and gasket. It was my standard fermenter. Then I was lucky and won the Brewhemoth in the HHHC. After taking possession of the Brewhemoth, my other stainless conical is for sale. It is a piece of junk compared to the Brewhemoth. SOOOO for anyone wanting a 14 Gallon Fermenator, I have one I want to get rid of!

What brand fermentor is the one you want to sell? I'm interested. I would love a Behemith, but not sure I can do it right now.

Your PM box is full.

I want to say the prototype one that is shown (in the pic with Dale) is about 44"...which is about 6.5" shorter than the normal one. But don't quote me on the height...I am off work this week and don't want to go in to measure it (they'd probably put me to work!).

Nope, I absolutly love mine. I guess the only dislike I could imagine
is not being able to afford two of them.

But a buddy of mine sent me a plastic conical he got off Kijiji and that one is good considering the price I paid for it but with threaded fittings, it makes it harder to insure that it is as clean as a tri-clamp.

It'll probably break in (the silicone seal) better over time.

It's from StPats @ $75.

I saw those valves as well standard bolt together butterfly valves, noticed their replacement seals fit their valves only not standard Tri-Clover butterfly valves.
Stout Tanks has a 1 1/2" butterfly valve lists $50, seal replacement years later from China? They will be making plastic Santa's or cars by then.
I'll locate Tri-Clover valves I know replacement seals will be available for a long time.
Thanks for posting.

Check these out as a fermenter, listed available in 26, 39, 44, 52, 66 on up in gallons, steel dimple jacketed, I bet not cheap.
