I like the idea of it. But I would still need to go to secondary to dry hop. So I don't know if it would be that much of an advantage.
But if I didn't dry hop, then it would be a cool addition to the brewery.

I have only seen poor reviews at best about those.  They often plug up and break.  Also the angle of the taper on the carboy is not truly enough to get the yeast to slide down.  It needs a greater angle like that of a conical fermenter.  Just what I have read.

That makes sense...and explains why everyone doesn't have one.
