I was thinking the same thing. I discussed it a little bit in this thread, and it was pooh-poohed. But having successfully chilled the conical with ice water, I think an aquarium chiller will be more than adequate.

I use the plastic CPC brand self-sealing for the fermenters.

I guess these have really taken off. Just went to buy another one and saw the price had jumped almost $200. I suppose they needed some way to pay for the full page ad in BYO.

The reasons for the price increase have been made plain. I'm sure it wasn't to cover their advertising budget

Speaking of repeat customers, I bet they could sucker more of us into a second Brewhemoth if they offered a customer loyalty and/or quantity discount. Hint, hint

Didn't read back that far . But I'm sure things didn't go up that much to be able to afford a full page ad in BYO. There is a good possibility they got some pressure from B3 about the low price as well. I was questioned about what I was using all the tri-clover parts for and they looked it up while I was standing there, and swore up and down that they couldn't be as good as theirs and they were ordering one to check it out. And your right if there was a loyalty discount I would probably buy another. But if not I'm planning on going bigger anyways. So I'll just move along

I got to use my BH for the first time yesterday. Brewed up 39 gallons of an Oatmeal Stout. Put 5.25 gallons into 4 better bottles and the rest (18 gallons) went into the BH.
I do have a video of my CIP system pumping saniclean thru it but have no way to post it at this time.

Okay, you have to understand that The Brewhemoth is only ONE product line our company offers. We are but a VERY small part of a larger company...the advertising budget is totally separate from any parts purchases. The parts we had to purchase are truly more expensive than you may think...stainless steel has gone up in price over the past couple years by quite a bit.

Also, B3 has not (to our knowledge) ordered one of our fermenters nor have they attempted to "pressure" us into increasing our prices...it was ONLY due to having to purchase materials that we had not purchased before and having to adjust the price accordingly.

I 100% believe this to be true. I am an engineer for a tool and die shop I see our steel cost change daily. But this does tell me that someone did not do their homework when setting the original pricing. Great for all of use that bought before they ran out of stock.

The B3 pressure comment was more of a joke than anything, but they did say they were going to buy one. And I do understand that materials cost money and that cost will fluctuate. With that large of a price increase you just took yourselves out of the pocket of the average home brewer which I think that most of us on this board fall into. I know that at the new price that I will not be buying another one like I had been saving to do.
