can anyone attest to the reflectix wrap you can get at home depot for water heaters ( not the thick regular insulation blanket type but the thin air bubble wrapped in two sheets foil etc type ) Want to insulate keggle with it. thanks, doc
If you're using the keggle for an MLT (the keggle won't be getting 60-90 min. of direct heat like a boil kettle would), it can work with minimal melt potential. Buy the thick foil tape (comes in a roll with a peel-off backing) and tape the reflectix seems and the bottom circumference of the layers (I use 3) of relectix. Also tape over the bottom weep holes of the keg so flames don't shoot up through them... HOWEVER, be careful with this. Those weep holes also aid in ventilation under the keg skirt. If you let the propane run too long without lighting and there was no wind, propane could build up under the keg and explode when you go to light it.
This is what I do, I'm wary of the propane build-up and have had no problems yet. The reflectix does warp (melt) a little from the heat, but it should stay intact for at least 2 years.
