What condition did the shipping box look like, sounds like it was sat on or stacked in shipping? You received it without looking at it from UPS? My driver stayed and watched me remove the ferm from the box making sure it was ok.
My Brewhemoth ferm came very well protected for shipping.
I would seriously doubt Dale and Josh would ship a product looking as you stated. I would be be calling them first documenting your problem before flexing the top section round again incase you you mess it up, CYA your end.
My thinking it's a simple fix from working with aircraft sheetmetal years ago.
It's out of round because it's a piece of stainless that was, from what I can tell, bent into a circular shape, and then welded down a seam. And when the handles were welded on, it flattened out the pot walls even more. I'm not here bitching about brewhemoth, I know you get what you pay for. I just asked if the conicals were of better quality. i know for the price you can't beat it. But again, you have to consider what you're getting for the price.

Regarding the bottom, it's circular. But it has a rock to it. The burner grates on my rig were dead nuts flat, because my Blichman bottom is dead nuts flat. We had to put in a jack and basically raise the roof off the garage to get enough of an indentation in the grate so that the penrose won't rock when full.

Regarding the shipping, the boxes arrived undamaged. No creases, dings, etc. The pots are the way they were made.

My new expected ship date is on or around June 4. I have all my fittings from St Pats for a couple of weeks so I guess I will kill some time working on a ferm chamber. I will post pictures of it as soon as it arrives. I had it customized with adjustable legs, two 1.5 tri-clover ports at top (one on each side of the 4" top) and a 1.5" tri added at bottom for thermowell. I have an idea of rigging up an element to the bottom tri and using it to boil a small amount of water in the bottom as sterilization technique (of course without pressurization). St pats also had Beer shank threaded triclovers that have different fittings available such as barbed fittings, and Gas fittings... If anyone has an idea to get an element rigged up to a tri-clamp I am all ears.
Would this work for you?

Nice! I have been transferring near boiling water to mine to sanitize. Maybe I will order one. I love the idea of boiling in the brewhemoth.

I went with this one from Brewers hardware: http://www.brewershardware.com/24-Tr...TWTCCAP24.html

I really like it, but would not recommend it if you are doing under 10 gallons batches. If you are, best send them an email, they will make a longer one for you.

Yours a Stout Tanks fitting and what does the weld look like?
Tis welded at the bottom of the cap or top?
First off, I have the St Pats one, so knowing that someone makes one for 1/3 the price, I wouldn't go there. The Stout one does look a little bit larger in the picture.

If I put it flat on a table, it's about 2", but whatever tubing and whatever style hose clamp you use will be on top of that. I can't tell more exact than that cause they are all in use right now.

Yep, it's a perfect fit for the 1.5 inch thermowell on top. It's also a perfect fit for the ranco temp probe.
