Sure, rub it in that my spray ball project crashed and burned! Actually I used a brush on the dreaded ring and that worked quite nicely. I may not even do a CIP spray ball.

The lid is off because I did not have a scale. Also the only reason I'm pushing it with co2 is because the fermenter is to low to gravity feed. I tried but it stopped part way up. I'm going to make a platform to put it on and then it will be high enough.

Use the gas, put the lid on the keg and let a little pressure off through the gas out port (push down on it with a screwdriver or something). Then you don't need to elevate the conical. I'd hesitate to put it on a platform unless you secure the legs somehow. A rolling platform would be nice for when it is full.

My plan is next week I'm building two 4'x4' platforms both with 10" Pneumatic wheels just like my brew rig has. I brew in my front garage and ferment in my back garage. So the fermenters are moved full over about 300 feet of crushed concrete driveway (or snow this time of year). As of now I just strap it to a 2 wheel dolly and move that way.
My 35 gallon conical has 4 legs and each will be bolted down. The BH will have the legs bolted down using the nuts that the feet are in now but I'll also add some eye-bolts to the platform and run straps from the top of the legs down to the eye-bolts.

Being that I'm not carbing in the BH I don't care about using the CO2 to rack. In fact I would rather not if I don't have to. Gravity never runs out mid transfer and it's free.

How long does it take to fill a keg using 1/4" ID tubing and the keg diptube? I am debating whether to use that approach or use 3/8" ID tubing and a racking cane.

Using gravity and not pushing it with 10+psi I would say somewhere between 5 and 10 minutes. More then enough time to sanitize the next keg.

This thing is awesome.

Thinking of using these in my brewpub since, 1: we like small batches and 2: we are in a awesome downtown building and can't get anything bigger than these through the door (figuratively).

Hey guys I just started a new thread documenting my Brewhemoth CIP system. If you want to share yours, or get an idea of how to build yours, check it out.

Anyone else have leg studs that are slightly mis-aligned? One of my legs will not go on straight no matter what I do. It is off at roughly 10 to 15 degree angle.
