It doesn't take much effort to trim that down to a very small amount. I did it in my BK, but left more on the MLT so that there was less heat loss and such.
Reasons I don't like keggles:
#1 - Many of the keggles circulating are stolen. It's a PIA to get them legally where I am (e.g. from CHI or other places - not worth the shipping cost in IMO)
#2 - I don't see the point of cutting the rim down to nothing, and I'm too big to get in there otherwise. The lack of being a p***y is more my problem(1).
#3 - They come in 1 size - 15 gallon - and the height doesn't translate well for a hop spider and a 5 gallon batch.
#4 - If i'm doing 50-100 batches a month on a kettle, you bet your @$$ the heating time makes a difference. Especially brewing indoors where I'll be forced to use NG instead of LP.
@Spike - post that drop-test video when you get a chance. Would love to see it!
(1) Goldie - I'll grant you I'm more of a p***y than i used to be - was able to get up to my shoulder in a corney keg the other day (vs up to my forearm). I need to get back in the gym.
