Well, IMO it would be retarded to interpret my comment as ripping on someone. I did not say that it is a waste of time. I only said that I do not understand why one would go to all that trouble and expense when the store bought ones are not terribly costly. It's just a point of view thing; nothing more.

I may be "retarded" then.

You equated time spent working into dollars minimum wage. Than compared that to buying a piece of equipment. The reasoning behind that line of thought appeared to be that your time is worth more money. Thus I concluded that you thought it was a waste of time.

If you apply the same logic you stated to homebrewing beer, the conclusion would be similiar: you would not understand why someone would spend $20 in supplies and 6 to 8 hours (at your rate) to brew beer. As you could buy store bought that is not very costly in comparison.

The logic does not fly in a community that is about DIY. Time does not equal money directly here. There are other factors, including satisfaction and involvement in process.

That is my point of view.

Again, come drink a brew, we can chat about it.

No thanks. It would likely just be a wast of time.

If i added up the time / money I invested in this hobby vs my hourly rate, I promise you I would be in the red... Almost enough to qualify for a government bailout!!!

Thanks for this diy, i will be doing this to put a fb in boil kettle to help keep some of the hops/break out of the fermenter. As for the negative comments from some, well yea I could buy this, but hell i could buy beer for that matter. Plus diy is very wife friendly as it doesnt generate receipts.

It kind of looks like this thread strayed from it's original idea of cross utilizing leftover stainless from a keggle build.

Seems pretty simple, cut top off, make holes in top, connect to bulk-head, enjoy

Haha... Sorry man...

I applaud your effort to figure out what to do with a Sanke top... I also wondered what could be done, but alas, I was lazy...

Cudos to you sir...
