Default Upside-down Keggle?

Has anyone done brew in a bag in an upside down keggle before? If so, any unforeseen problems? Can you do a 5 gallon batch?

People use upside down keggles all the time with biab, the aussies are upside down right now, crazy i know.

Other than that, i have no idea what an upside down keggle is.

Yup! I'm planning on doing an electric brew in a bag in an upside down kettle!

If u have the keggle already in place with the proper hardware, ur fine, it'll be just like ur doing a regular BIAB batch.

If u are still converting ur keggle, I know Bobby sells some fittings and hardware for bottom draining keggles on his site. Brewhardware.com
