I wouldn't bother with the SS bit and get a Fermentasaurus if you really want a conical and all the benefits that come with it. Especially considering the V2 is coming out very soon i recon in a few months you will be able to pick up new or second hand ones for £70 or less.Anyone got a 25 - 30L one they'd recommend which doesn't cost the earth?
Nice one David cheers, I'm guessing you have yours in a tall fridge bud?Have been using the SS brew bucket for 8 or so batches, it is fantastic, a very good seal, and extremely easy when it is cleaning time, me personally will never go back to plastic. the racking arm is perfect when transferring, they do cost about £160 If I remember correctly, pricey but a great piece of kit.
That looks good to me, just going to take a good look now. Thanks!Brewbuilder 33 litre flat-bottom FV. Pics here:
You need about £50 worth of tri-clamp fittings. I wrote up the details here:
As a Jock, of course! The issue with a large conical like that is my current fridges will be way too small. Any excuse to upgrade I guess!I wouldn't bother with the SS bit and get a Fermentasaurus if you really want a conical and all the benefits that come with it.

You live a bargain you know you do!!!
Thanks!I have the mangrove jack ss fermenter. I think it was around £130. I really like it, it holds 30L, good features include solid ss handles for carrying, an airtight lid with four clamps, the tap is easily taken apart for cleaning and I can push tubing up into to for kegging. It also has pressed markings on the inside for volume.
Only snag is the tap is fitted a couple of inches above the bottom leaving around 3L of dead space, so I end up tilting it when kegging. Great if your not fussy about losses and want to avoid drawing any sediment through it.
I don't have one, but assuming you don't want an air-tight lid:Anyone got a 25 - 30L one they'd recommend which doesn't cost the earth?
Worth considering, although I would really want an airtight seal. And a tap as well; although not a game changer if not.I don't have one, but assuming you don't want an air-tight lid:
I just watched a couple of reviews and they're actually a lot smaller than they look on the SS website.I have 2 SS brewbuckets and both used in undercounter fridges. One of the fridges needed a small wooden stand to raise it enough above the compressor hump but still fits in. I bought a blowoff adapter https://www.ssbrewtech.com/products/blow-off-barb-for-ftss-lids which works great.
