I just bought a Sanke keg from a scrap yard (side note, it was the last one they bought as they are now refusing to buy any more due to theft) and plan to make one of these
. I brew 10 gallon batches and thought it would be nice to ferment in one fermenter. My method of brewing is draining the cool wort into glass carboys from my kettle, let the trub settle for a bit and then I would transfer into the Sanke. When it is time to transfer to secondary I feel I will need to use CO2 to transfer, since there isn't a way for me to get the filled Sanke elevated to use gravity for a siphon. Would I drill a second hole in the clear lid, use a solid stopper while it is fermenting, then use the double racking cane setup when I make the transfer? I have never had to use CO2 to move beer before so I am a bit unsure. I have an extra tank and regulator I could use.
