Take a look at Ikea.com. I have one local and they sell a stainless ring with a glass center that I like and they are cheap too!

I have made a few, and still have some material. What size are you wanting?

i'm looking for 2- 12'' lids, i want a solid top so i can run a fitting through it like the Brutus 10

Go to Academy Sports, Dick's, or some other big sporting goods store. They usually have a cooking section and you can buy tops seperate. Most stockpot lids are 12" from what I found.

Do you have a restaurant supply store in your area? It's easy to get stainless lids for commercial pots at restaurant supply houses. Mine has a "used" section that is really nice on the wallet.

I went to a restaurant supply store and got a 12" SS stock pot lid for $10-15.

thanks for all the replies, i think i found a restaurant supply store about a mile from my shop, going to hit it on the way home monday. I'm going to have my pump drin back in through the lid, is the curved or flat cover better?

'Better' is hard to define. I have a lid with a slight curve and it happened to work well on one keg but another is still in need of some adjustment with a grinder (left over ridges forming a + on the top). Also, I used a flange gasket (9 in?) from McMaster-Carr in case you are looking for one.
