Wow.

So will you need a bigger kettle to fill them? ;)

Nice!  It's amazing how much bigger they look than the 7's.

You can bet I thought about you, damn it!  :P

We have another 30 bbl fermentor and another 30 bbl bright on the way after the nw year. We ordered these from GW Kent. They were a bit pricier than the one's we had been having made in China through a company I won't name - but they were available now as opposed to 4 months and we didn't end up paying too terribly much more when you factored in shipping from China. And no shadowed manway, mirror polished welds, separate jackets on cone and body. They are pretty sweet.

Hoping to get a 30bbl brewhouse within the year but I will be back to back batching into these in the meantime.

New glycol unit from Pro Refrigeration should be here within 30 days. With my current unit will only be able to rig one up for use.

I've been getting a lot of equipment quotes over the past week. Kent's on the short list for sure.

Do you happen to know the difference between their standard and "micro" tanks? From the catalog it looks like it's just thinner steel on the jacket exterior (16 vs. 14 gauge).

No, I don't. I'll ask Ethan. He ordered them. I just gave my thumbs up.

We actually got a good price on these. We were able to talk them down and get something that was fairly close to the quote we got from china + chipping. Don't get me wrong, they were definitely pricier but when you factor in I can start filling them next week as opposed to March or April ....
