It might be legit, but I think you'll find that a local fabricator/welder could probably make a small batch pilot system like that for less money, and do it locally.
Or a keg with a hole in the top and spigot would work juuuuuuust fine for 100x less. This is a pointless thread for a homebrewer. I mean really $12,000?

The system I only posted for those that LIVE IN SOUTH AMERICA where if we were to even just order all the separate parts and build it ourselves we would end up with a price tag of $18k thanks to all the shipping costs and taxes (which for ecuador for this type of stuff is a 100% tax).

sjeesh read before commenting for once...
I read what you said... We're home brewers who generally are good at DIY, so I hardly doubt there's many people interested in a $12,000 setup. That's for a professional not for a home brewer. If you're buying a $12,000 setup, you better be making money.

I pressure ferment in two 1/4 kegs that I got for $20 ea and I built spunding valves for both for under $50 total. $45 ($90 for two) or $12,000 hmm...

To the original poster...
If I understand you correctly the entire rig shown is $12k, correct, which if I understand was an FYI and what you are really trying to do is brig attention to the conical fermenter, correct?

The entire system looks AMAZING, honestly I wonder if anything like that could be made for only $12k in the US, the time and materials to do all that would be insane not to mention the electronics. Thanks for posting this up, it's a shame everyone else had negative comments, if they are not interested they should not have wasted their time with a post.

There are several fermentation vessel options, from high end Blichman products to DIY keg fermenters, as much as I would love to invest in a high end fermenter I must consider that I brew once a month, at the absolute most, as well as the huge expense of equipment on what will only ever be a hobby.

My DIY 10 gal rig that cost a bit over $2k, well....the price continues to go up as I'm always tinkering trying to improve on my design.

What makes you think that a company that produces comercial breweries give away blueprints for public share?

Yeah I doubt they will release their design, I know I wouldn't, that is if I was in the business to make money.
