...Find out volume of cone, to any valves, to any thermowell.
Oooo... nice save. Don't mean to hijack your thread, Steve, but I gotta know - do thermowells come in custom locations (through the top or through the side anywhere you want it) or are they pretty much fixed by the particular manufacturer? Does one mfg put it in the top, and another put it in the side near the cone? Which is best? I'd think you'd want to take your controlling temps near the cone where the heat will be higher, no?
Again; sorry, Steve, for hijacking, but you started a great topic here...
No hijack, just topic development. For me,mthe bottom of the cone is just for dumping. Mid cone I'd where I have the racking arm for draining the beer to the keg, and the TC port just above the cone is where I have the Thermowell.
