Was curious what everyone has done with the sphere when they removed it from the keg when they convert it to a keggle?
I imagine using it for a siphon some how, but other then I have not came up with anything, suggestions ?
Do you mean sphere -- as in a ball or orb -- or spear -- as in the dip tube in the sanke? Some people use the spear as the handle for a home made stainless steel mash paddle.
If you are talking about the actual top of the keg (which is kind of a sphere) I have seen people use them for a false bottom
I'm talking about the sphere/dip tube from when you take the center out
I re-purposed the spear or downtube from my keggle as a sight glass protector.
Or spear.. Either or lol
I covered the "big" end with a non-scratch green scrubby pad and use it to scrub out my cornies.
Mine is a +3 Mace of Intoxication!
Kidding, I like the sightglass protector. You can chop off a inch or so and use it to rack off of the yeast cake if you ferment in the keg. Pretty much anything you want to do with it though.
