Default Warning! Keggle owners please read!

I'd hate to see any one get injured.
I've never thought/heard of this before.
I could cause you to loose a leg or worse!

Edit: Dead link.

Make sure the bottom rim of your keg has got holes in it!!!!!

I thought that was posted earlier in the year... May be I just read it over there, it's from May.
Bottom line, make sure your kegs have drain holes in the bottom rim.

Biermuncher knew this and was being proactive when he designed the BearTrapple.

I'm going to check mine later. I'll take a grinder to it if it needs it.

Mine has them, and I always wondered what those holes were for. I don't think they put those drill holes in the rim for venting for boiling though. kegs aren't designed and made for being converted into a keggle.

Ohhh I know what happened! Those holes are there to let rainwater out of the rolled rim, and I'll bet the one that asploded was full of water! When it got to boiling, it stressed the metal and kerfloom!

But the most important thing is, the keggle is still useable

Thanks for the heads up Orfy. I've been brewing with mine for over 10 years and I never knew to check it. I'll be sure it's drilled before I brew with it again.

Not quite the same thing, but fun to watch.
