Sanke Conical Project
 
4 Attachment(s)

Hey guys so I've been dying to convert one of my sankes to a conical fermenter. I currently just us them right side up and a airlock + stopper combo. My plan thus far is to flip the sanke upside down, attached legs to it, and then drill in a hole in the top big enough for an input and airlock + stopper.

I have a 2" triclamp concentric reducer to 1.5" then a 90 degree triclamp elbow into a ball valve.

Nothing is set in stone right now I am hoping to get some creative discussion from HBTers. One topic I want to discuss is how should I do the top of the sanke? Should i cut a larger opening and then leave a glass lid with an air lock?

What is the best way to do transfers? I know gravity isn't going to be sufficient so I need to figure out a way to do CO2 transfers.

Just got my order in the mail from brewershardware.com so I'll attach a few pics of what I have so far.

Also I attached pictures of the legs that I will be constructing.
