Anyone know where I might score some cheap 12 or 13" stainless lids for my keggles that I'm getting ready to cut the tops out of?

Cheapest lid is to use the keg tops and solder or weld some stainless steel washers along the rim so they don't fall in. A few people have done that around here.

The cut off top is definitely the cheapest route, but you might want to check this site out for lids.

Samc - Thanks! The ikea lid is perfect. I'll get my daughter to pick up from ikea in Austin since you can't order that online for some reason.

If you want stainless, Vollrath makes a inexpensive line of covers and hotelrestaurantsupply.com has the best deal on them. Other places have them for cheaper but require a minimum order.

I bought a set and have been very happy with them, they're 13" total diameter, for an opening of 12.5".
