I've looked at the conicals, and while I like the idea of the ease of dumping yeast/trub, they just don't fit in my system. My ferment fridge is an old Samsung side-by-side (don't use the freezer side for anything), and if I went to conicals, I could only ferment one batch at a time. With fermonsters I can fit two. And they are just easier to clean; take off the lid, fill with warm water, and use a microfiber towel to get the gunk out. I can fit my arm all the way to the shoulder in those things. I recently got a pressure-transfer setup for them, and I will never go back to either using an autosiphon or stuffing the tubing into the spigot; it's just too easy, and low oxygen, and CLEAN.
