Default Fermenting in 15 gallon snake keg question

Has any one used one like a carboy? Any success and any tips would be awesome. I'm thinking about trying it. Thanks Tim

That's how I roll. Get some bungs with a hole for an air lock (secondary) and some others with a hole for a 1/2" copper pipe + hose for a blow off.

Really easy to sanitize and clean.

Good luck,

I know you will. If you have a metal salvage yard near you, it's easy and cheap to get some used kegs. Bring a screwdriver and stab the spear to make sure they hold pressure.

College towns seem to have an excess, especially around move out time for the frat houses...
