Guess everyone is hedging their bets that they are going to win. Suckers.

Sooooo I just cut my keg open and laid the false bottom down. It looks GREAT! I'm pumped to use it on my next brew. However, the age old adage of "measure twice, cut once" is irritating me.

How high above the false bottom should I drill the 1/2 in hole for the ball valve?

I don't want to be too high up as to leave extra wort behind, but I also don't want to be too low as to have issues getting it together and apart for cleaning between brews.

Hold the dip tube inside the keg and see where it falls in relation to the weld line. Or hold it in the leg where you want it and meSure from the top.

This is good advice I like to be a little on the safe side and hold it up a little higher than most. I like to have a good 1/2" under my dip tube for all the reasons you mentioned. But keep in mind IF you do put it too low, you can always cut the tube off a little on the bottom side.

Cheers

Default dip tube

I'm sorry if this has already been answered, but is there a particular dip tube that you use to determine size and placement of hole in the FB? Thanks in advance.

You can get the complete assembly from NorCal that will be set up to work correctly. OR, you can just get the false bottom, with the hole in it, and then get/make your own dip tube to work. You can get the dip tubes a bit longer, and cut it down to where you need it to be. I have the hardware to create dip tubes the length I need, and with the bend I want.

When I make a new mash tun keggle, I'll do away with the bulkhead at the fittings end. Completely unnecessary IMO, since you get the same effect with just using the compression to pipe fitting (the one you'll use on the bulkhead). Makes for a longer dip tube, but that's typically cheaper than adding the bulkhead. It also eliminates additional joining points in the system (so less leak potential).
