Running off in stainless steel

Postby twojaythomo » Sat Feb 13, 2016 10:16 pm

I was thinking about running off my low wines into a SS keg and keeping it there until I do a spirits run which will then be straight into glass.

Would this be a bad idea or okay, I have never kept alcohol in SS container and thought the low wines might be ok till I did a spirit run.

So it will have to be sealed airtight? Might see if I can get some cork.

Thanks guys

No need for cork, see mac for a 2" end cap, clamp and seal.
Much better seal
That's for a 50 ltr keg
