Beginning Homebrewer

One extract brew completed (not so great).
One all-grain Blonde Ale completed (overshot on the gravity, thought it tasted like sanitizer, but I gave it 3 months and it tasted excellent!).
One all-grain Cherry Stout (switched to all-glass fermentation)

comment Does aging the beer make a huge difference?
The gravity on my Blonde Ale was really high accidentally. It started around 1.08 or something crazy like that. The final ABV was 8.14%. So that definitely could have been a big factor.

comment Low Cost Conical Fermenter
I have to say I learned something from this answer... But it wasn't exactly helpful. If someone was wanting to switch to a 6.5 gallon conical for a reasonable price, what would you recommend? Paying $200 for something that will only last me 2-3 years, or possibly less considering your fittings findings, what would you ultimately suggest? Or would you suggest just paying more for a long term solution?

I may start doing it the old fashioned way again, and pay more attention to it and do it the right way. We'll see how long I can stand it :)
