Default Keggle Design/Schematic

Anyone have good info or a link for the best placement of spigot/brewmometer? How high up from bottom?

Do the brewmometers sold at the online HBSs fit a 1/2" NPT fitting? I don't think I've found one that has specified that it would.

Thanks

Your question is debatable in that a lot of us do not have a thermometer on the boil kettle. A little below half way up is good for a brewmometer.
The drain should be as low as is reasonable and some have a tube that goes to the edge of the pot at the bottom to avoid sediment and not leave too much beer behind.

1/2 inch fittings are standard and stainless material is preferred.
