Sorry off topic but:

Dude did you give up coffee the morning you cut the lid opening on that keggle?

Hang on one more....

Dude, power tools and drinking should not be done together... That's one drunken looking keggle opening...

Hmmm.

Nobody's ever brought that to my attention before.

Well, I attempted this over the weekend. One lesson learned...

smaller stock pots really are going to need metal not PVC pieces.

Other than the slight melting causing the bag to drop into the wort (I rescued it without spilling much hops) it was EXCELLENT.

As you can see, mine is also more off to the side, and hung with a single hole and a SS S-hook.

Mine is similar to this, except I used two hooks. It melted the PVC a little. I am going to try keeping it up a little higher and off the sides of the BK.

Skip the plastic. Two u-brackets, two threaded rods, four wingnuts, and some office clips. Can't be any easier. No construction beyond twisting wing nuts. Fits any pot.

Bro great idea for a hop strainer looks like it would work well. plus i love the Chiller built in to the kettle saves space. I been looking to get a keg and build a kettle but i beed having a little of a hard time founding one if u can believe that.
