Hi guys,

I'm in the process of designing something new and want to make sure it'll work for most keggle owners, so I have question:

What's the diameter of the hole you cut in the top of your keggle?

Thanks!

Kal

P.S. I'm an equal opportunity employer and will take measurements in inches, centimeters, furlongs, Planck lengths or even parsecs. Measurements done in Canas or cubits, however, are highly discouraged.

I believe mine is about 9.877895e-18 Pc. I based it off the size of the spare lid that I had available.

Thanks! That's 11.9999" by my calculations. (Just to make things a bit easier for me).

12.5" inches. Cut at 12 then ground it out a little to fit a lid.
