In 2012, I had back surgery, so I need to avoid lifting containers filled with liquid. For the most part, the conical will get me away from having to do that.

I'll have a leg kit designed for it so I can open a valve and rack directly to a keg. Of course the conical can be cleaned from the top down and drained from the bottom, plus I typically harvest the yeast for a few batches and that too will be so much easier. Mostly I am looking forward to not having to run the extra refrigeration needed to keep fermentation temps constant. I had a great Danish made Master Built freezer fridge that finally gave up the ghost. It was wicked-bad on our power bills. So much so that I altogether stopped brewing in the summer months.

Sounds like you have this well in hand Chris. Will you be running Propylene Glycol on the jacket for the ferm?

Cheers,

RR

For the cooling jacket on the fermenter. But you probably know this.
