what thickness is side-wall and bottom of sankey keg?
Cannot find this information anywhere - I have a european style 'plus keg' with 1mm - 0.03937 inch = 39/1000 - thickness - this seems mighty thin for a boil kettle.
I also have a standard US style sankey keg - not yet converted, but I wanted to know what is the thickness of the sidewalls and the bottom. I've googled the web, but can't find the direct information.
Does anyone know these dimensions I am seeking? If so , please reply.
I'm going to convert the US standard sankey keg anyway, but want to compare steel thickness with that of the Euro keg - if the sankey keg sidewall and/or bottom is much the same as the 'plus keg' then I'll also convert the other kegs I have.
thanx in advance
oh - here's a link to the information page for the 'plus kegs'
they are covered in a polyurethane rubber to protect them, which is why the steel is so thin, i think - 1mm is not a hell of a whole lot! that works out to 39/1000 of an inch!
I'm going to remove the PU plastic no matter what - if nothing else I can use the 'plus keg' as a HLT or insulate it for a mash tun, or just scrap it for the stainless steel value if it has no value as a homebrew vessel.
