I agree with you on that Steve.. unless you already own one or two of the 5 gal hoods. Looking at cost to make it is a better deal just to go with the stainless version

Cheap man ponies up the bucks for SS.. That should be a headline in the Merced paper :D or in the Obits, with "wife kills Cheap man for spending big bucks" 8-) 8-) Please let us know how it works, Only thing I see as an issue is cleaning out dry hops since you can see whats left ( like a glass CB) I would like to see how easy harvesting yeast is as well.
Nice to see you spending $$$$ Wade... :P :P :P

I now have keg in hand.
Well for those interested it takes a 2 inch clover fitting. I was looking at mine. Wade , just in case you loose the o ring you can use a clover fitting seal . You just have to cut one side of the ring off. with both the clamp wont seal. Cheapest Ive found is on ebay. You could also use a #10 1/2 or #11 stopper if needed.
Now looking at the quality and I have access to parts. I think Im just going to buy this unit. Less fuss and I dont think I could do as nice of a job.

I'll post some pics of the fermenter converter on my blog this weekend and I'll be bringing it to the CVBG meeting on Wednesday for those that want to see it. Derrin did a great job on it!

so. I was greeted today by a usps package. That fast?? wow.. I took a look and I have to admit its a lot better than what I could have done. $70.00 worth?? Well maybe not but I am satisfied with the shipping time as well as the product. I have my keg soaking in PBW right now and Im looking forward to playing with it.
Thanks again Wade!
