I have the Blichmann 14.5 gallon and I love it. Brought it home, luved it up and filled it with cherry wheat. My girlfriend sleeps on the floor now... Not sure why she looks at me the way she does... perhaps I need a beer?
I don't know about other conicals but I love the tri-clamp fittings on my Blich and it is a breeze to work with. The only thing I can't really do is load it into a temp-controlled environment (aka the converted chest freezer). I've been told by a reliable source that I won't wake up in the morning if I convert the girlfriend's shoe closet into a walk in fridge...
