Just one thing that catches my attention, watch having the sightglass on the same fitting as your ball valve. That will keep your kettle from draining all the way unless you plug the hole on the top of the sightglass while draining.
Thanks for that tip !
I had tested draining this setup in my other keggle and it seemed to work fine.
But my other keggle had a thermo/site tube and a separate drain hole (any one want to buy it in the area?)
I thought I just needed a length of tube to create the suction and have it drain.
But yesterday -
I got pour suction and it basically failed... makes sense, if you have a secondary vent hole, not much suction will be created - I feel silly now... thanks again.
Everyone else, thanks for the comments -
Night or early day brewing seems to be a common theme around here.
Now that I got one under my belt and know what exactly I need to prepare I will can knock some time off the process for sure.
No matter what I do... I do it right the first time.....
when you make mistakes it cost more but hopefully those will be minimal and you wont have to redo stuff.
Drives the wife crazy... I take too long to do anything, but it is usually right and the way I want it when I am done.
thanks again Kevin
