Trying to convert a 60 Gal Ice Cube. This is the one with the drain about 1-1/2" from the bottom & at a 45Degree angle. The wheel axel connects both wheels creating a hump on the inside.
Will Denny's braid work on this? Or will there be about 2-3" of wort left in the Tun.
I don't know about Denny's braid, but I tried a couple of "braid-like" ideas and decided they wouldn't work. I "created" a bottom-resting drain manifold from CPVC. I then used a couple of angled CPVC couplings to hook into the manifold into the drain itself (equipped with a 1/2" stainless steel fitting going into a 1/2" CPVC coupling.
The design leaves about 2 cups of water behind when doing "dry runs". Cost of the CPVS manifold was less than $10!
Sorry I can't describe it better. PM me and, I'll be happy to send a picture of the inside of the cooler once I get my carboys off the top of it tomorrow after bottling!
