That's pretty steep, I wouldn't justify that either.

A guy at the shop I work at was doing his first batch of beer with some of his friends (ie, drunk, ignorant, a-holes), and forgot ice. He went on a run to get it, telling them to just shut the stove off when it got to 0 min. They got impatient and poured it into his BB... sucker melted and slumped to the side, but didn't spill his beer. He fermented it out in that... I'm sure there were all kinds of bad things there...

That's sad. But in a funny way. Bet he'll always remember his first batch. Any chance you can scrounge up some pics?

I think that was his only batch. No pics that I know of...

I use these exclusively, only had one crack on me. I left PBW in it for a couple of weeks and right after that it cracked on the bottom. I was dumb with my first one and sprung for a 5 gallon with the fancy racking port. I never use it. It could be handy for a secondary though, if I used secondary's. I do worry about scratches so I buy a new one once a year and rotate out the old and use it for water measuring. Ditto on the 6.5 size. I've been eyeballing conicals though lately.
