Default Sanke Tippy Dump MLT

This is my dead of winter project that I am just starting now. Yooper wanted to replace her 10 gallon cooler MLT with a sanke. I thought that was a good idea so I got a keg and thought I would build them both at the same time. I am just starting tonight.

These will be tippy-dump. I am cutting out the bottom of the keg and using the 2in tri-clamp for a bottom drain. I will make this work...not exactly sure how yet. Here come some pics from todays progress with one of the kegs......more to follow....

Thanks for the pics! I love "picturing" what you're doing. I also love the "I will make it work but I don't know how...............". Bob did the actual LOL thing because we know it's true!!!!!! It will work and work well.

Thanks! I haven't seen anyone cut a keg with a shear yet. It works great if you're wondering. All of two minutes...

FYI, I did burn through 3 sawzall blades. I should have been able to do it with two but I was impatient. I think a sawzall would cut the top very well also but I had the shear. I'm stickin' with that now.

Subscribed. I have a roundside 15.5 sanke that I might want to do same thing.

Never thought a shear would work.. an angle grider zips right through. Cool design !
