If I were going to try one I would just get the semi clear cone and use my own bucket, not to keen on the black myself. Plus if you just get the cone you don't get the fittings, and I would probably replace those anyway.

My biggest problem (other than the possibly fixed fit and finish) is I'm not sure there is a lot of advantage over using a bucket. If you use metal fittings you are going to want to disassemble it each time to clean, so a lot more work and what is the benefit? I mean there is a certain coolness look factor, but I could brew in a bottling bucket and get a no syphon fermentor I have to take apart to clean.

SS with sanitary fittings has a lot of appeal (other than cost) so that is really just a cost issue.

Damn I think I just talked my self into a lot of $$$ ;~)

I wonder if you could use a standard plastic fermenting bucket with his semi-clear cone? I still have two 6gal fermentation buckets that I use for secondaries. They have the little valves inserted and a hose running from there to a bucket would be a blowoff. Drill your own holes and use your own ports/valves. Maybe he is missing the boat on a product he could sell a ton of. The only 6.5-7.0gal plastic conicals are all like $150 and up and for $250, I could buy one of those Chinese stainless conicals on ebay.

Edit:
so I added all the parts needed to make just a conical and it was $124. That is the cone, the legs the gaskets and the clamps. That is still a little expensive. You could take a piece of scrap plywood cut a hole in it and screw some legs onto it to hold the assembly and eliminate the $20 legs.

The cone gasket and clamp come together for $59 (black) $69 (semi clear).

The leg holes fit 1/2" PVC, it's actually what they used to use for legs.

The fittings are the only thing that would start to creep up on you. Personally I would not drill out any but the bottom drain and tap ones. And stick a fermentation lock in a hole in the bottom. The "tricky" part would be corking the hole while you fill the bucket before you flip it over. Should be looking at under $100 even if you need to buy a bucket.

And yes they fit the standard buckets. At least according to the description.

We now offer white, black 6 and 7 gallon buckets that are pressure tested. Everything part that is in contact with the beer or wort are FDA approved materials and guaranteed not to leach. We now have a large diameter yeast port and please keep giving us suggestions because we will continue to work on them.

Is there still a raised ring inside the code where the 2 parts are molded together? To me this is the only show stopper on your product.

There is nothing that can hold bacteria on the inside of the cone anymore. 2 parts are not molded together.

Awesome. Glad to hear it. The semi clear bottoms look pretty nice. I like the idea of being able to tell where the yeast/trub level is at.

Still waiting to get mine here in Egypt--darn APO mail can be SO slow sometimes! Hoping my yeast and other ingredients actually show up first, then I don't have to sit n stare at the fermenter and not be able to start a batch...

Take close up pics Mirabotz. I'm curious to see what the changes look like compared with the older model I have.

Do you think there would be any off flavors or smells from the plastic buckets?

Chris
There are no off flavors for the plastic parts, all parts are FDA food grade material similar to Tupperware and guaranteed not to leach.
