New Stainless Steel Conical Fermenter!
I upgraded my homebrewing fermentation equipment last week and purchased a new 14 gallon stainless steel conical fermenter. The model that I decided to go with was the SS BrewTech conical, because it was high quality, had a ton of upgrade options and frankly was the best price out there for a stainless steel conical fermenter.

In addition to purchasing the base model, I also purchased a temperature control kit. You can get a basic idea how it look by viewing the following image. Basically, the temperature is monitored via a probe in a thermowell, once the temperature reaches a certain point it pumps either hot or cold water through the stainless steel coin that is in contact with the fermenting beer.

I ended up also changing out the stainless steel racking arm, which was the only item on the conical fermenter that I was not 100% satisfied with. It was not bad, but I felt that the one that MoreBeer offers on their line of homebrewing stainless steel conical fermenters was superior. In addition to that I also purchased a stainless steel yeast harvester for my homebrew conical fermenter.
The upgraded stainless steel racking arm and stainless steel yeast harvester with sight glass is available here:

I still need to do a little setup and cleaning on my new stainless steel conical fermenter. I want to run the temperature control unit into my kegerator so that I can chill the cooling water in there. As I make progress I will post some followup information!
This 14 gallon stainless steel conical fermenter for home brewing is currently available for $495 here. They also have a 7 gallon version for $395.
