If I move up from 15 gallon batches I am going pressurizable conical. I would love to have a 40 gallon.

Those Brewhemoths are each 22 gallons. You could get 2 to your door for $900.

I bet a 55 gallon SS drum would work for around $100. Not a conical, but for the money....

WM: You have a great thing going here in a novel brewing syle. Conicals are are only good for 3 psi.

Curious as to if you mean only good because of their rating, or if it has something to do with the way they are shaped and the yeast?

Pretty difficult to make something pressurizable with a 16 inch o-ring.

I don't see the 'hopper with a top and legs' design as ever being able to pressurize, IMO.
+1 on brewhemoth being cool.
