Default Where can I get a metal lid for my Keggle?

I should have saved the tops when I cut open my 15.5 gallon ss kegs, but I didn't. I now want to get some metal lids for the keggles.

Any ideas where to get some?

Thanks...

Any restaurant supply chain will have an assortment of lids in standardized sizes. I cut my keggle opening to 12", as I already had a few lids of that size.

Check out Smart & Final, I'm pretty sure they have stores in Vegas.

12" will be the most common size.

I am thinking of a round cookie sheet or pizza pan. A handle should be easy enough to make.

Seems like I saw a pic of one being used as a keggle lid somewhere.

The top would be too small, wouldn't it? Wouldn't it just fall down in the keggle?

Kirks...some folks weld on some washers or similar to the cut tops to be able to use them as lids.

Any place that sells pots and pans should have lids. Unless it's your personal choice, you don't have to stick to metal.

I always see lids at yard sales and estate sales. You find all kinds of stuff for brewing out there.

That would work, not a tight fit, but it would work. I don't have a TIG, though.

You know, a glass lid would be cool. I could watch the boil that way.

I made those for him about a month ago or so. I still have a little material left. I could hook you up if you want.
Cheers
