Yep. It screws into the back of the bulkhead.

So I just bought a place with plenty of space to start all grain brewing. I have read a lot of articles and looked at many different set ups but want to know what I would need for the basics. As much as I would like something badass and tricked out I just want something that will allow me more control of my beer.
I have been brewing extract with specialty grains in my apartment for almost a year now and while the beer taste great I would like to take the next step into this obsession.
Even if you just show me a link to a good site with information or your own set up that would be awesome. And about how much do you think it would cost to get a "starter" set up that I can upgrade easily?
Thanks a bunch.
Have been fermenting in a 10 gallon keg for quite a while. It works great! I use a cask widge flow when transferring to reduce/eliminate sediment pickup all the while not wasting any beer.Awesome idea! I bought one to try for serving, but using it in the corny fermenter is genius! Just pop a little gas-in diptube on the beer-out side and push the silicone hose on?
After talking to some people that deal with metal stock, I was told that their center support is a commercially available piece. The legs to the stand are easy to make through welding or if you have a friend with a metal shop that can bend them up. It's more work to do, but could be alot cheaper, though I don't know I just bought it from be.
I too ferment in a 10 gallon keg and dry hop with loose pellets. This is the solution I came up with.
I just place it on the end of my dip tube before I sanitize and fill my keg. It is a little bit of a trick to hold it onto the tube as you insert it into the keg, because it will fall off occasionally. Once it is in place you are good to go. I have a dip tube that I have cut off the last inch and one that is normal length. With the sure screen or similar screen I have never had an issure with the out tube clogging with pellent or dry hops in any amount or length of tubing. It may not be of help in your present situation, but I would definitely do this for future batches. You could certainly attach the sure screen to a racking cane to get your latest batch out of the fermenter, although I don't think it works as well.
