I was just over at menzel's plastics (south rd, Edwardstown, Adelaide) to pick up a plastic jerry can for CC'ing (got one with two screwtops on top + bung for a tap at the bottom), and noticed a cool lid for containers (similar to the Grumpy's ONE containers).

It's the large round srew top lid for all those larger 15+ ltr containers, but has a pull down type plastic tap (like on water dispensers) integrated into it. It gets the liquid via a small (and thin) dip tube which extends into the container.

Using this you could convert one of those larger cubes into a CC container quite easily. The idea I guess is you tip the container on it's side to fill / dispense through the tap.

It was only a couple of bucks, so if you've got one of those containers lying around from an ESB wort kit or something, one might come in handy.

Cheers
Mike

I didn't actually buy one Ken, coz I don't need one, just thought others might be interested.

You might have to be wearing the Coopers top Ken, she's complaining she's got a lot of marking to do before work starts again (school).

I'll bring my camera :D

I've seen those lids. They're very useful for dispensing.

I have one of those 25 litre cubes that has a bung for a normal tap on it, so it's not quite as handy a proposition for me, but they're still a nifty idea.
