I'm still a newby after about half a year and 7 batches of extract kit brews. I'm considering a Conical Fermenter ( 5 gallon batches) to try to keep everything in one unit and harvest my yeast.
What's everyone's opinion on these? I'm leaning toward a plastic one, because I'm a cheapskate. I've read there's been issues with leaking around the threads and after contacting Fast Ferment they said that had been addressed but didn't say how. Also I've read the shape of them makes em a little tougher to clean. Obviously the shape of them makes them awkward to move about, since I don't have a dedicated brew space and will use the kitchen counter.
