Those look pretty good and seem to have all the fittings in place. From what I can make of the USPS web site shipping could be had for about $US55 for express shipping 4-10 days. So that would be about US$200 all up or about AU$270. The saving for economy shipping is only about US$10.Ross said:This link was just posted over on Grumpy's.
Not bad looking conicals.
Thanks Doc,Doc said:I got a catalog sent to me from Minibrew just before Xmas.
I remember looking at the prices then filing the catalog in the "one day" pile.
I can dig it out tonight and post the prices if you wish Ross.
Who makes all the normal fermenters? Surely if enoguh people wanted them they could make it a bit bigger and with a conical base.
Ash, Im in Perth and would be willing to do some kind of experiment with something like this to see what could be done ...Has any one got anywhere with these?

I think Asher was heldup by 1) checking out the aspect ratios (fermenter height to width, in theory those conicals are a bit tall and narrow for ideal fermenting conditions, in reality who knows) and 2) his honeymoon in Belgium.Has any one got anywhere with these?
The angle is definately all wrong using a 23 Litre glass fermenter. You would get better use with an upturned wine demijohn, but then the glass is so thin in those that any krausen blocking the gas relief tubing would likely result in a 25 litre bottle bomb.
awesome asher :super: , what were the costs involved please? makes my 25l one look like a kids toy...finally... My 100 litre plastic cylindroconical tank (will only use it for 60l though)

SS 3piece valves & rotatable racking tube
temp controlled fridge - its a tight fit... Welded up some brackes so the tank just slides in where the old shelving was
Asher for now
