The lid is too small to have gas in and beer out simultaneously. You may have to rig some kind
of way to QD the gas in and beer out through the same port, and repressurize after each pour.
Posted in thread: False Bottom or Manifold for Bottom Draining Converted Keg MLT on 06-09-2015 at 09:17 PM
If I were going this way, I would attach a handle or something to the false bottom so that you
could pull it out from under the grain after mashing. This way, you could let it all out the
Posted in thread: Sanke Mash Tun - Figure 8 Manifold on 05-19-2015 at 04:27 PM
Here is the manifold for my new mash tun. The cooler wore out, so I'm going to be using the
former HLT keg for mashing. I'm calling it the Figure 8 Manifold. I kept it small so that it
would stay lowe...

a full 1/2" drain for the new cooler. I should also be able to use my current bazooka screen on
