    Conical fermentors, specifically the blichman ones.

    Does any one own one? I am thinking about getting a 7 gallon. Is it worth the money? Does it save time / frustration? What is the differance between the triclamp fittings and the standard fittings?

    Kolsch yeast from wyeast.

    I have read wyeasts description and specs on this strain but i have a question or two. I am fermenting primary at cool basment temps(65-70 degrees F).
