Default tiny rust spots after first boil on new ss keggle.

Last night I did a trial run with my new 15.5 gallon keggle, march pump, and plate chiller. Everything worked like a charm. The pump pumped, and the plate chiller brought 5 gallons of boiling water down to 65 degrees in 5 minutes. as I was cleaning up I noticed that on the inside of my keggle on the very bottom there were tiny dark spots, which looked liked rust spots. Has anyone had this happen before, and will I still be able to us my keggle?

TIA

Pick up some Barkeepers Friend and give it a scrub with a scotch brite pad, that will clean and re-passivate the stainless for you.

Yup, pretty common when the grinding slag hits the bottom. The best prevention is to fill it 1/3rd way with water before grinding/plasma cutting the top off.
