How are you going to use the sanke. Did you just remove the post? i have 2 sanke kegs sitting in the basement that i eventually plan to use

You mean the valve and dip-tube assembly? Yeah, if you're gonna use a stopper you'd have to remove them. Easy to do, see my youtube video on keg to kettle conversion.

If it helps, I know the opening is exactly 2" so get a stopper that has that as a midpoint diameter.

if you're going to use the sanke kegs as fermenters you might want to check to make sure there's no beerstone at the bottom. i've heard this can cause off flavors or even infection, so just be careful.

Just got 2 more sanke kegs for my fermenters. Sanke's are in very good condition and after removing the post i dont see any beerstone or sediment at the bottom. I am going to soak the kegs with some disinfectint just to make sure. Thanks for the head up
