So what would you recommend, geniuses? Should I drill holes around the bottom, or how about cutting "teeth" into the bottom of the pickup tupe?

\/\/\/ - something like that? I have less than 1/4" of space between the bottom tube and the keggle bottom, so I think it jammed up too quickly.

Are you using anything as a filter or hopstopper? if so I would say just hack about anouther 1/4 inch or so off of the pick up.

Would 1/2" stainless tubing be to small for your dip tube?, if not let me know as current installation job is coming to an end and there are fittings and tubing leftover.
