    Ultimate Sparge Arm on a Keggle

    It turns out that this product requires some modification to fit on a keggle, it is designed for a narrow walled vessel. My quick solution worked, so I didn't go to the trouble of proceeding with this incredible looking sparge arm. My quick solution was to grab a Cuisinart Steamer Pot insert...

    Ultimate Sparge Arm on a Keggle

    old wine barrels

    Keg Parts For sale -Canada-

    I think you'll find those "corny post seats" are pretty much useless without the gasket that sits on the top. The part is shown here.
