I really like my conical. It is in the garage, which gets down to 40F most winters (last winter - not so much). To control temps, I have a regulator and add heat with a thermowrap.
You can rouse the yeast by using 2 PSI CO2 on the dump port. You can get dry hops off the bottom the same way. The top has a corny lid, so that is nice for dry hop additions.
