As a fermenter it would be as easy as taking the shaft out and sticking a bung the size of the opening or sealing the opening (keeping the shaft and ball valve in) and cutting a whole the size of a carboy bung and calling it a day.
So, after thinking I scored at least one good keg it was brought to my attention last night that the one I have is aluminum. Dang! Back to having "0" kegs, because I don't want to make a MLT out of aluminum. I guess I could still make a keggle out of it, but I'm still bummed that it's not SS..
OK, EDITING this post.. I suspected that the guy who told me my keg was aluminum might have been wrong. I found an ancient thread about determining if it was AL or SS by using a strong magnet to see if it was SS. The verdict.... the magnet stuck! I'm back in the game!
