I made this for less than $6.
http://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/grp/1022630334.html (groups)

The idea is to use the 1/2 coupler I have welded on the bottom of the keg. I'm going to put a 3" nipple (with holes drilled in it) in the coupler, slide the false bottom over the top and hold the FB down with a washer and a cap.

Nice, have it on a non-Facebook page, or at least one that doesn't require login?

I'm assuming you guys are kidding when you ask what it is... And I'd agree, it could make some nice SPINNAZ...

Que es eso?

I think it's an old pot lid with holes drilled and slots cut.
