You could put I wouldnt do that. You have all the yeast and trub on the bottom, then you have all the krausen on the sides. It would be one messy beer.

You cant see in them so much, but you can just clean the hell out of them the first time, then I am just careful to never let it get dry. The moment I empty it i rinse it out well and begin to soak in PBW. Havent had a problem up to now.

I bought one of these from Derrin @ Brewershardware.com. It's a triclover clamp with adjustable racking cane, thermowell, and blowoff tube combined. It's well worth the money, IMO.

Didnt look but, what if you rigged a ball valve to the bung hole. and cut a new bung hole in the bottom, flipped it on a welded stand. Wouldnt that work just like the 100's of dollars conicals??
BTW Funkapottomous I found your $50, How much is the reward? I bought some kegs with it, thanks.

When you say to halves, is it already cut vertically down the center, like a grill?I've seen them used as a urinal...

Carboy brush works pretty good in them too, I have a small mechanics mirror that I stick in and shine a flashlight in just to make sure there is no gunk.
