My pots came out of a scrap yard and had paint on them, once the paint was off they looked very dull like yours. I used Bar Keepers friend and a green 3M scrubby pad and made sure I scrubbed in one direction with a thick paste of BKF.

They turned out nice and shiny with minimal work.

No ball valve, been thinking about it though. Any good sites for quality parts?

brew hardware and bargain fittings are both members here and sell top notch stuff at good prices, i've bought plenty from both places. they will help you with anything you want to know about the fittings and how to install them.

Damnit eastoak now iv gone and spent another hundred dollars on a sight glass setup and a ball valve from that site.

Really, though, thanks for the tip. Will make my brew day that much easier and more accurate.
