Default Any reason why this wouldn't be a great fermenter?

Was looking through the US Plastics site to see if anyone made 10 (10-11 hopefully) gallon food grade buckets and came across this conical bottom tank that includes stands. It comes in 35 and 60 gallons and is only $165 and $191...

Seems to me to be the perfect medium-large size fermentor for the money since most conical ferms I've seen are $400 on the low end.

Any educated opinions regarding this?

Heres a link to something similar. Lots of cross referances to US plastics. Maybe it'll help you get some answers.

Excellent thread! I got 12 or so pages in and had to stop for now. That thread has all of my questions answered and a ton I hadn't thought of yet. Looks like I know what I'll be brewing with later this year after we move to San Diego... Thanks!

Lots of nanos use them as their start-up fermenters. I know for a fact Cape May Brewery did.
