As previously mentioned, installing a spigot is practically essential. Then there is getting the pot/burner up so it's more practical to drain. Then, if it's up, being able to get up to the top of that bad boy. Then there's the issue of organizing group brews (I can't imagine how I would handle almost a barrel of wort.....etc.
Of course, I'd have taken the thing too, if it was me......

I have a 50Ft 1/2 IC that I built for the keggle already doing 10 gallons ,Shirron plate chiller and a March pump so this will be used on a single tier system . I just need the silicon hose and QC to set it up and some time
