Default Kegs for Fermentation?

Hey all, Been a while.

Can somebody post the link to the stainless fermentation caps for sanke kegs?


Somebody here makes them and I am interested in seeing the site.

Thanks

Cool, Thanks guys.

Is anybody using these? I have two 1/4 barrel tall sanke kegs I want to use as fermentors.

How do you like them?

My concern with using a Sanke keg to ferment is the inability to get inside to properly clean it.
I know you can soak them in PBW and what not, but how do you know you really got all the krausen and gunk out?

I bought one of these from the guy and had a few conversations via emails with him. I had the same concerns. He explaines that he adds water, puts the keg on his burner and heats it up for a while. He then dumps it and sanitizes it with sanitizing solution. He claims he has never had a problem....I haven't used it yet, but in time.

This may sound stupid but how do you get the ball out?

Not stupid at all, it's tricky at first but gets simple w/ practice. A really small sharp screwdriver works well.

Or even better, watch Bobby M pop it out in under six seconds.

I have on in use right now with plans to implement more. Derrin makes a really fine product. I'll be doing my first racking today- push the beer with 3 psi CO2 through the filter and into the kegs. A totally closed system.

As far as cleaning, a PBW soak in hot water will do it. To check cleaning, i have a goose-neck flashlight and inspection mirror. To really blast the gunk, i made a simple pressure washer- for those interested the pdf can be found here Click on 'pressure washer' and it'll download the pdf.
