    Folks,

    Just wondering if anyone has managed to dismantle a Dolium keg?

    Is the valve push fit or screw in?

    May attempt a dissection, but access to freebies is limited and I don't want to wreck a potential keg.

    Ta.

    Did you manage to get into the Dolium Keg?

    Last night I scrounge 4 X 30 litre kegs of this variety.

    I only want to use them as fermentation vessels, but need to get the spear out of them and be able to wash them out etc.

    I was thinking of putting a rubber Bung with a trap into the top, if the valve is drillable.

    I've already depressurised them.
