Re: Bottom Drains - Worth It?
 
Okay, I'm converting everything over to electric (e-HERMS). I just scored three "new" kegs, which I'll convert over to keggles. So, should I go with bottom drains? Is it worth it? I see that Bobby M has a bottom drain package, so it seems easy enough. But is it worth the extra money and effort?

If so, does it make sense to go bottom drain on all three kegs? Or, doesn't it make sense to go with bottom drains on the mash tun and boil kettle? It doesn't seem necessary on the HLT.

Thoughts?

I use a bottom drain mash tun, but a side drain keggle so I can whirlpool and leave the trub behind.
My LT is a 40 qt SS pot with side drain. A bottom drain LT would have the advantage of full drain so that the element doesn't rust.
