I don't see that being an issue. I can bring a growler people can stuff tips into if need be.

make the a mason jar for ease of getting the money out haha!

Please do bring the growler though... filled



mparsons - likely we will do hops for each buy, pending how this one goes, and pending interest. I am thinking that we might even do every other buy or something, but we can see how it goes. I seriously doubt I will need 22lbs of hops for every buy!

Just curious, but do any of you guys use these?

I was wondering what for, and if for beer kegs why? Looks to me like the cost for one is $122 + $37.50 conversion kit... That is a lot of bread for one 5g keg. Now if they had keg kits like these for the 15.5 sanke kegs...

Has anyone tried this with a 15.5 sanke? I imagine they would be a bear to clean.

I would sure like to consider something like this for lagering. The grain bill being smaller woudl make for an easier larger mash in my tun. I guess you would have to get a 15 gallon fermenter for the initial period, then after the d-rest you could push it over to a 15.5 gallon keg and lager.

Now I just need a working sanke (insert cost here) with tap that allows ball lock connections like the chi companies kit (37.50).

Thank mparsons

Its not hard to get the center post out of a sanke keg, ive done it to 3-4.

This is what I use to ferment my double batches:


Works great and i just use PBW and a good soak to make sure its clean. Easy to sanitize too, just throw it on the burner with some water for 20 mins.

I also have 3-4 3 gallon sanke kegs that I used to fill with brew. I use one of these kits to allow me to reinsert the dip tube and serve.

Added a new sheet to the spreadsheet that summarizes everything for easy sorting and pickup.

What are you doing at the top? Are you pulling the spear and using a stopper?
