Title: Conical size
Post by: NextEndeavor on July 24, 2017, 07:28:49 PM
I have a 10 gallon Blichman brew pot, 10 gallon cooler mash tun and 15 gallon HLT. At this point 5 gallon batches are enough for my needs, future might hold larger desires. Can I run 5 gallon batches in a 14 gallon SS conical fermenter or is that too much head space?

Greetings NextEndeavor - I cant think of any reason why it wouldn't work.  Make sure the entire fermenter is fully sanitized and go for it!  Good luck!
