They are talking about the float jamming/sticking to the side of the vessel before it is empty, in that scenario a narrower vessel should be at a disadvantage, ^^ obviously this is not the case.A narrower vessel like the FKJ is going to have a slight edge, as 1cm height of beer is less volume. So I would expect the FKJ to be very good for this. It does have its own volume limitations though, so up to the user what is best for them.
I use an all rounder, once I'm down to the last 5L or so, I rotate it about 20 degrees or so on the stand, and typically get 2-300ml beer left in there at a stab. How do you end up with 5L of beer still in there?
Why do you need to rotate the all rounder? I like to connect a keg and not faff around until it blows, and when that happens I want it to be empty.
Width is the other issue, I have a 4 keg serving fridge, and a 2 keg serving fridge, if I used all rounders as uni-tanks I would be left with 2 x 1 keg fridges, this applies to all the pressure PET fermenters of course except for the fkj which holds 18lt only 1lt less than a corny, horses for courses, and very much process dependant but if you are having to prat around with your vessel of choice give an fkj a go, for $60 it's cheap enough to trial, and they don't leak or blow up, well, not yet.
