Re: Threaded Copper adaptor for Standard US Beer Keg
- What about cutting a 1 1/2 inch hole with a hole saw bit in the
top of the keg off to one side and simply fitting in a rubber bung.
That would be a pretty good sized hole to release any amount of
pressure wouldnt it? I mention this because I am planning on welding
a 1 gallon pressure cooker on top of my keg to mount the column to.
This would allow me easy removal (less than a quarter turn) and Still
give me a 8 or 10 inch hole for filling and cleaning. Plus I worry
that the salad bowl mount might get weak and topple over during
distilling. With the weight of the water and hoses and such. Since I
am planning on using propane, I certainly dont want that to happen!
Just my 2 cents, any thoughts? Brad
