Default The uses for the sphere from the aanke keg??

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 ?

Default Do you mean "spear"?

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.

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.
