Whilst honing my welding skills I decided to go ahead and get to work on my brewing vessels
First I had to purchase three kegs. There is a lot to discuss about legally obtaining kegs. .... Not here please. After an extensive search I managed to buy three kegs at $50 a piece. A little pricey but I had been searching for months so I took what I could get!
I built a keggle jig after getting myself an angle grinder. Yes the Barbour freight one was cheap, but I had to replace it within 2 months.
It made a pretty clean cut
Next came the drilling. This was quite labor intensive for me. I bought a step bit $45 and it took hours of work!
I inserted typical weldless ball valves on all three vessels
Here is my typical weldless false bottom on my mash tun.
