    keggle lids?

    For my lids I used some pizza tins that I got cheap at the local restaurant supply store. I put a drawer pull in the center for a handle. I think they were 14" lids. I had to bend them just a little so they fit both of my kegs. The one keg I have the top is bent a bit in one spot.

    Do these barrels make good fermenters?

    Custom tap handle search

    These are not as fancy and nice as Monty's but I know they're cheaper. I found the wood in a bin outside a pallet factory. I made the one in a shape of a bone as I call my brewery the lapdog brewery (name came to me as I drank my first beer with my Jack Russell sitting on my lap) I had...
