    Thanks OZ

    I was looking at those. The price is certainly is right!

    I assume they are sturdy enough?

    if your going to drill through it to add a ball valve I suggest a good step bit, they burn out quick with this solid 304 stainless so use oil and drill in short burst and let it cool between

    probably has been used with an air pump, so the beer is going to taste stale from all the oxidation in it

    And the rabbit hole gets deeper and longer.

    Cut my keggle today. Piece o cake.

    But now my burner is too small. The keggle does not sit safely.

    Suggestions? I would like a tall one so I can drain easier

    Which begs the question - are high BTU flamethrowers overkill?

    will a 185,000 btu unit use more gas than necessary? IS a 50,000 btu more economical?

    what happens when you turn it up is the flame spreads out and crawls up the sides of a smaller pot so you can only turn it up till the flame stops at the edges and the higher btu will use more propane, it has bigger jets but you can always tun it down so thats your call
