SS is a bit easier to clean, but I think brazing a copper sheet is easier than welding a 22ga SS sheet, thats some THIN stuff.

What about looking for a stainless basin sink? That should be able to get you the size you need.

I have seen some nice SS basins on craigslist, search for stainless sink, you be amazed what come up. Old dark room sinks are excellent for this(make sure to clean it uber well)

Here is my new thought. Gonna cut a keg in half hotdog ways and add a port. Cheaper for me, I already have all the equip. Photos this weekend. Thoughts?

Not a bad idea. I think it's at least worth giving it a try if you have a spare keg around

I've got one. Just called a friend and he's going to cut it this weekend. I guess essentially I'll have two "ships" once I'm done.

I was going to suggest that actually but then I suggested the basin sink.

you will need to re-title the thread if you go the keg route - 2 coolships would then be a coolfleet....

Yes, here all week, try the veal and tip your waitress.

CoolFlotilla perhaps.
Cut didn't get done this week. Brewed up 20 gallons of a "cream" style ale. 10 with british yeast, 5 with Brett-C and 5 with "old ale".
