I am checking this out and looks like a killer deal.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ayphotohosting

Is the deal with these that you don't need a secondary? Just dump the trub and yeast as it ferments until clean and then into bottling bucket?

I've actually bought one from him - have not used it yet but I can tell you it is as advertised, and shipped fast!.

I know for me, even with the shipping it was the best deal..

Same here! Only thing that keeps me from buying a couple is the fact that they are 7gallons. If these were 12 or 15gallons conicals I'd be all over them.

I did email the seller and asked if he was a.) using the TMS cones and b.) if he can make largers ones.

I'll post here when/if I hear back from him/her.

I'm new, speak slower and louder.. No really, it comes with everything shown except a stopper & lock - and you need to get 1/2" barb for dumping and 1/2" - 3/8" for bottling.. All NPT... True - it is only a 7 gal. I think I'm going to do a Double Choc. Stout in it next week maybe..

Ummmmm...you can bottle straight out of this? Or do you mean to rack to bucket? Sorry, never dealt with conicals before....

Take a look at the second picture. That is a racking arm or racking port assembly.

It is another $50-$100 part if these don't come with them.
