Bulk Extract Container as fermenter
 
2 Attachment(s)

So I got one of those 15gal (estimated) containers from my LHBS to ferment in for $5. It's been a cheap way to ferment 10 gal batches, but I'm tired of siphoning into a secondary. I'd like to put one of those cheap plastic valves on it that are used on bottling buckets, but not sure how to mount it flush without losing beer. There's no threads on the bulkhead to add a diptube. I'm curious to see if this is done or ideas the community may have. I only need to pull about an inch or so of beer before I fear disturbing the trub.
