Then, when it's time for the comparison tasting, you can do it all over again!
meh... keep it all to myself Not many brewers local to me

Did I say I liked it!
most definitely . I plain on polishing the outside with a rotary buffer .May end up selling a couple of keggles sans fittings

I'd definitely clean the heck out of it but, I am not sure I'd "scrub til it shined" unless I researched how to re-passivate aluminum and get the oxide layer back. Not sure if Aluminum will re-passivate itself or not.

Excellent find tho'.

Aluminum is easy to re-passivate just boil water in it for like an hour that dark/dull layer is the oxide that protects the aluminum .

I cleaned it up and did a boil in it to get the oxide coating. I will have to do it again because even after I scrubbed it I got a little oil on the water surface. I am just going to fill it with water and some dishwashing detergent and let it sit a few days . Cant really see it too well but fits the burner perfectly

Yeah, it's free, but how much did you have to spend on the ladder so you could actually get up to it?

What everyone else has failed to mention is just hoe bad you truly suck!

Nice freebie. SWMBO once rescued an old weber bbq from the garbage heap, we took first place state chicken on that old kettle.
