We're needing a couple of conicals for 20 g batches.. We've looked at the Blichmann 27 FV's.

If anyone is selling one or 2 or something similar please send me a PM.

Or if you have any feedback positive or negative on the Blichmann's..

Thanks!

No practical experience with anything that big, but I've noticed that my 14 gallon Blichmann runs about 3-4 degrees hotter in my "cool room" than what my 6 gallon Better Bottles did when actively fermenting.

Do you have a plan for keeping these cool?

Take a look at Toledo Metal Spinning. You may be able to get them to fab something that will require some assembly on your part for far less cash than the Blingman stuff.

Thanks.. we're currently using the wineries barrel room which is temp controlled and right now is at a constant 65. Not exactly the best scenario but may have to do for now. But at least we can keep it under 70 and may can drop the room to 60 if need be..

We have a glycol system but really don't want to go that route with the pilot system's FV's

Don't forget about the Stout Tanks... Depending on features wanted, you can get a little more bang for the buck. And no, I'm not associate with them.

Has to be 20? Brewhemouth is probably just to small even with a blowoff hose.
