I have a 4" angle grinder. I've used it to cut my first keggle and it was nice. However, since I'm cutting 3 in a row, I'm making a jig that will hold the grinder and also pivot on the center of the keg like a compass. The holes will be perfect. No worries, I'll document the hell out of it for everyone.

A friend of a friend of a friend tells me that you can get an adapter and use a keg as an 'aromatic oil maker'.

Might want to save the cool one for possible alternative later use.

I actually only went to pick up only two additional kegs to add to my existing keggle (HLT and MLT). The deal was just too good and he had the 3rd. I got them from a crooked liquor store owner and only paid the deposit. Flame suit on. Forget it.

I'm plan to convert all three, cut the tops and weld in couplings. I'm just trying to decide if I want to set them up single or two tier stand and whether or not to put couplings in the bottom or not. I don't think there is any significant advantage to a sidewall spigot given you have to install a dip tube anyway.

If I use RIMS on the MLT, I will surely put the drain in the bottom. Anyway, I think it's more cost effective to have six couplings welded in than two at a time since they usually have one hour labor minimums and I know they should be able to do all 6 in an hour. I'll probably sell the 3rd as a keggle ready to go.

Don't sell the third! Use it as a 2nd hot liquor tank. You can then dump the MLT at the end of the sparge. Reload it with the next mash and you'll already have water ready. You can do 2 batches just by adding one hour to your brew day. Boil one while mashing the 2nd. You could either use the first HLT as the second boil pot or just wait for the first batch to chill and clean the boil kettle. I know a guy that uses 2 HLT's and does 3 batches a session this way. He brews once a month and ends up with almost 40 gallons.
