Default Glacier Tanks Conical Uni-Tanks

As it turned out the fermenter fit nicely in my Fermenting chamber and the thermo-well accepted the probe from my BCS nicely. Here are a few shots of the Glacier Tanks conical in the fermentation chamber during primary fermentation. If I choose to do a pressurized fermentation all I need to do is turn off the valve to the blow off tube, replace the tube with pressure relief valve and turn back on. I brewed 1 BBL of Hop On Blonde (house lager) yesterday and filled the fermenter for the maiden run.

Default Glacier Tanks Conical Uni-Tanks

Here is a shot of the second tank I will use for carbing and storage. I have a 4" carbonation stone on order that goes in the spot where the thermo probe is. Relief valve and pressure gauge on top. I will force carb and then pressure transfer to kegs carbed and ready to go.

Keep up the great work! I'm both impressed and inspired by your build. I installed a 100 amp/20 breaker subpanel over the weekend, so one more thing to check off my list. Now onto drywall, cementboard, and tile for the brewery, and then onto kettle conversions, controls, etc. Dropping $7k on a high efficiency boiler to heat my basement floors next week, so I'm not sure when I'm gonna pull the trigger on the control panel. Oh well....as long as I'm making progress, I'm happy.

Gosh, I have so far to go with my build. But this is an inspiration. So many possibilities. I am limited a bit because I have to be mobile. Once I retire from the service and move home I will be ready to create a masterpiece.

Annapolis HB is my brewshop too BTW. Cheers to a work of art!

I've been watching your progress and admiring your work. You will love the heated floors. Good luck enjoy!
