Why do you want it? Well it looks bad astrix! But really why? Bottom line breweries use it to re use yeast to save time and cost and flavor. Why? If you keep beer on yeast in a conical with pressure(and sometimes heat) it is not healthy for yeast over the initial fermentation. It can stress the yeast to a point they die and make beer not taste so well. Remember all those that say take your beer off the yeast cake after two weeks? Real answer depends on your fermenter and size. What happens if I buy a Chroni? If the cone is shaped correctly and you do it right you can harvist yeast. Overall in a typical homebrew setting you do not need it.
