It is 2". I bought a 2"-1" adapter to give even more of a funnel, then used a 1" to 1/2" NPT adapter. In order for the tri clamp to attach to the keg, the lip has to be shaved off the side of the...

Definitely a nice solution, and clean. At $20 an outlet (I'd need a tri clover to NPT adaptor, gasket, and clamp, right? I've never used tri clover), I think I'll just stick to welding the couplings...

I'm building an entirely new system here, so I haven't got there yet. The plan was simply use a false bottom in the kettle to strain hops, but that doesn't help with trub. I think I'll be investing...

I thought about that, but it seemed cheaper to weld in a coupler than adapt the keg port to a plumbed fitting.

Electric keg system; port in bottom

I'm building a new brewing system using kegs, and am planning on using electric elements in the HLT and kettle, and RIMS for the mash. Is there any good reason not to simply weld the drain port in...

Mini fridge as glycol cooler?

Does anyone know how cold a mini fridge will go with the freezer divider removed? I'm considering using one for a line cooler.
