Cut your dip tube about three inches and fill er with 2 &1/2 inches of quick-crete.



Sorry Denny. Feeling a little ornery today. Not sure of a good solution.

lol. Hmm.. If I knew someone that could weld SS, I'd buy another brewery keg and weld the corny on top. Yes the whole corny... That way it would be a 20g keg! Though... a, uh.. tad tall.

Or you could just weld the lid part so you'd have a 15g keg you could actually fit in the fridge & access the inside for cleaning....
