This is my second 14 gallon conical from Morebeer
I bought this second conical almost two years ago to use in my brewing setup at our retirement home. I finally got to put it to use today. A great piece of equipment with a couple shortcomings that don't seem to be getting resolved: As was the case with my first conical, I had a problem with the stick-on rubber pads on the frame that hold the conical in place in the frame. When the conical is filled, they slide out of place under the weight of the wort and the fermenter cone tips out of level, scraping the conical. The problem is easily resolved by cleaning the stick stuff off the pads and frame and them epoxying everything in place. Surprised Morebeer hasn't done anything about this as I'm not the only person to mention this shortcoming. The second problem hasn't actually happened with this unit yet, but I am anticipating that it will. The well-documented/terrible feedback concerning the joint in the lid gasket breaking seems to be unchanged. The costly gasket breaks at the seam with great regularity. Read the gasket feedback. Other than these two problems, the conical is great and easy to use.

14 Gallon Conical
I have been using this conical since April of 2010. It is a top notch piece of equipment and I am very happy with it! My only complaint is the rubber pads on the stand that keeps the conical in place will slip and come off causing the conical to lean. I was surprised that this was not addressed better with all the improvements that went into the remodel.

No regrets
The first thing I thought after I unpacked everything was, "Wow, this is extremely high quality". I almost bought the Blichmann 14 Gallon conical the week prior. After handling the Blichmann and handling the MoreBeer conicals - the MoreBeer conical easily stands out in quality.

I haven't brewed on it yet but I will two days from now: couldn't be more pleased!

Takes brewing to the next level.
There are few things in a homebrewer's arsenal with more cool factor than a SS conical fermenter, and it is completely justified.

These are the reasons I love it:

1. I will never have to carry a full fermenter anywhere ever again.

2. Harvesting yeast is a breeze with the large port butterfly valve on the bottom.

3. Tri-clover everywhere is the only way to go. The ease of hooking up attachments to different ports is tremendous, and you don't have to worry about silicone tape or tools to get a tight seal.

4. I can transfer to 2 kegs at once using CO2.

My only complaint is that I only have 1.

Downside is the price.
You got to be really serious to lay out this kind of money to replace a couple of glass carboys. Having said that, once you got it you be very happy with it. To use the yeast collector attachment you will have to get extension legs. I have the extension legs on mine and put the whole thing in the spare bathroom in the bathtub with wooden blocks under the legs so as to not damage the tub. It's super easy to clean out using the hose with hot water.

Great, but expensive, product.
Forget any expensive airlocks or blow off tubes. Recommend you just get a stopper with a hole in it, put one end of a hose in the stopper and the other in a jar of sanitized water. Presto, Instant, foolproof, and cheap, blow off tube/air lock.

Love the fermenter. Minor problems with the stand.
I'm in the midst of fermenting my third all grain batch in my new 14 gallon conical. I love the convenience of the thing. Easy to set up and use. Dumping trub and harvesting yeast are both incredibly simple processes now. Transferring beer to kegs with CO2 pressure is a breeze. The beer I'm producing is head and shoulders above the quality of what came out of carboys. I encourage everyone to get one of these things if you can.

My only complaint is with the stand that holds the conical. As I mentioned. I'm putting my third batch through the fermenter now. The first two were 5 gallon batches. The current run is 10 gallons. The fermenter worked flawlessly for the first two batches. However with the current 10 gallon batch, the weight of the wort caused one of the stick-on rubber pads on the frame to slip off one of the three points when the conical is cradled by the frame. This caused the conical to tilt to one side, it started dripping from the lid gasket, and most significantly, put a not so nice scratch (small gouge) on the outside of the fermenter (stainless fermenter directly on stainless frame). Other than shoving in a temporary pad, I can't really do much to remedy this situation until the fermenter is empty in a month or so, when I plan to install heavier duty screw=attached pads to the frame.

With the top quality of the fermenter build and it's significant cost (which just went up), I would recommend that Morebeer! put a couple more bucks into the pads that cradle the fermenter in the frame.

A wonderful product with one small shortcoming so far.

I have this conical as well (Order# 2848560) and I am having the same issue with the fermentor shifting in the stand. It is so disappointing to show off your state of the art brewery only to open a fermenting chamber to display a dilapidated $1000 fermentor. I went in search of the internet to find other solutions for this problem but I have not found anything yet. If anyone figures out something robust please post so the rest of us can fix this problem.

I love this conical!
I waited for the pressurization feature until pulling the trigger and I am glad I waited! Everything is well thought out, the tri-clamp fittings work great.

If you get this, I recommend getting the temp sensor/probe setup. This makes it so easy to keep your beer at the exact temp you want.

Some things I learned/do:

When cold crashing, I'll pressurize the conical a few psi to account for liquid contracting as it cools. Learned the hard way to do this after sucking in through the blow back.

When dissembling and cleaning the small bleed off valve that prevents over pressurization, make sure you pay attention to the way the small insert faces relative to the spring and lid. Took me a call to get it back right, as it looks like it might be backwards even though it is correct.

The gasket should be placed on the conical with the rounded part touching the lid. Again, I learned by doing it wrong but was able to talk to the morebeer guys at an AHA show and got the right setup.

The gaskets that I got with the add on pieces like the temp probe are different than the ones that came with the conical. At first I didn't think it mattered, but I had some pressure leakage early on and solved it by keeping the original gaskets fitted to the original parts. Doesn't make total sense but it works for me.

Get this if you can!
