I needed to make a larger top for my burner to support my sanke 15.5G keg, which is slated to become my boil vat. I have a MIG welder (long story short-friend moved and couldn't take it with him) but had never used it, since I didn't have a 220V circuit. I put one in over the weekend while adding circuits for the basement, and fired up the welder. Took a while, but I was able to fashion an additional grate to go on top of my burner that will support my keg. My question is for any of you out there that weld- can you recommend any good books for a starter? I found a class that I am going to take in the spring, hopefully, but I am in classes right now for my masters, and cannot fit in another class, but wanted to at least get some instructional material.
My welds look like a rat was gnawing on them.
