It is very nice and certainly a departure from the Ale Pale.

They should have welded a square of 1/4" plate steel on the bottom of the legs and tapped a hole for the feet. Way too much weight for a side-tacked nut IMHO.

I hope you like the conical. I've got a half dozen batches through mine (not brewhemouth) and I just can't get past not seeing the beer. I'm thinking about bailing.

Bobby,

What you need is someone to weld you a 6" tri clover and put a piece of glass on it.. Check this out.

LOL, ok now we're departing from the practicality of using a conical.

We've had no issues with this design to date, so I think our welders are doing just fine. BUT...this is always something that can be looked into for improvement!

That is, after all, kind of why we do this...to make our product the best it can be and keep our customers happy!

Thanks for the comments and great photos!

I'm at the point where I really want one. But I mostly do 5 gallon brews. Would this be overkill for so little beer?

Bit of a bummer - the 24" thermowell doesn't reach 5.5 gallons of liquid. The cooling coils, however, are almost completely submerged.

It look's awesome, but that rusty inside is not cool at all. My stupid mega expensive Blichmann kettles had rust spots on the inside, not something you want to see on stainless.

Bobby, I don't know if you have any available ports in your fermenter, but I added a couple clear poly caps to the 1.5" tri-clamp ports in the lid of mine. It's not a huge viewing area, but I can get a pretty good look inside with a small flashlight, and they were only $6. Most of the time I keep them covered with a loose-fitting lid, so there's no issue with light.

Here she is on her first run. I loaded it up with 20+ gallons of Oud Bruin and pitched a pile of Roselare in. There's ice water in the Igloo. A Love controller switches the aquarium pump.
