I'm making my first keggle. Anybody find any use for the tube that comes out of the center of the keg? I cut the spring ball off and it's great as a stirrer for 5 gallon batches on the stove top.

Good for sculptures as well, if you can collect enough. I came across some import kegs that had 3/8" spears, they might serve me as pick-up tubes.

I'm going to use mine as a protector for my glass sight tubes.
