40 Gallon conical fermenter, built mostly out of 1/4,3/8 and 1/2" stainless and weighing in at about 300 lbs. my best guess is that it was a turnkey extract brewery as it has a heat skirt (notice how it is heat discolored in the bottom pic). It holds pressure and had 3, 1/2" couplings welded on top. I added the 1 1/2" sanitary fitting and the tee for blowoff and thermowell to match my morebeer conical's functionality as well as a 2" butterfly valve on the output of the cone for dropping trub. Note I am selling the conical only, not the electronics, chiller, heater or pumps as they are already in use on another Project. $1000, this is not a thin Chinese fermenter it is a heavy duty, bombproof conical.

Also note that due to the weight and size of this I am looking to sell it locally as I have no idea how I would ship it.

Hi, sorry I don't know how to copy the thread on the mobile app. Click on my username and look at the threads I have started. I have the details posted there. I would do the cooling a little different next time, feel free to PM me as well and I'm happy to share my experiences.

Hi, based on the weight I do not believe it would be reasonable to ship. It would have to go freight and I have no way to Palletize or crate/skid it. If you want to explore options I have a freight-able loading dock at work (zip 95054) and assume it is 2ft in diameter and 60" tall weighing 250-300lbs.

PM sent. It's worth a look. I'm in the market for another 1bbl tank. Stuff like this is hard to find in the east. Where did you find yours? Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places.
