Default Converted keg

On my way to converting three kegs to an all grain setup.

The weldless sight glass and spigot from brewhardware made it a snap!

I used about 5 of the reinforced discs on a dremel to cut the big hole and a step bit from Northern tools to drill the holes for the sight glass and spigot.

Next up are the HLT and mash/lauter tank.

Nice but before you use it, you'll want to sand off the burs on the rim or you'll get blood in your beer.

Angle grinder will clean up that rough edge quick.

You gonna get a false bottom or brew in bags?

Looks good though.

Those photos were after the Bar keepers friend and 30 minutes of scrubbing. The previous owners weren't too kind to the kegs.

When I make the mash tun I'll put in a false bottom...

My plan is to eventually have a three keggle setup with the electric brewery hardware...
