I was not trying to create a panic...I am simply advising that you are better off not blatantly showing major brewer kegs being used as keggles. I was with the brewer for 20 years and in a position where I was involved in these discussions.

That's all I'll say...I just saw all of the pictures and wanted to give a heads up. If I was still with the brewer...my next steps would have been to send links to our legal department. Since I am not, I sent a general warning to the HBT team. There is a good chance that reps from other brewers who are extremely loyal to their companies would do the same.

Do what you wish...I have a brew kettle.

Edit: Sorry guys..might have been too harsh and I felt bad in hindsight. I just know what I experienced, and I would not flaunt this in front of them. Do what you want. If they want to make an example of people (like the music industry did going after people downloading copyrighted music), going after a few home brewers would get the word out. However, it would also put them in a negative light among beer consumers...they are in a tough spot)
No reason to feel bad. We all take a risk posting keg pictures. I think it is a great idea that people have a better understanding of the risk they take when re-purposing certain items. I took your advice (and gave a little sarcasm back), and changed a couple things that make it a little less obvious to folks what I have going on. Better safe than sorry.

depends what your definition of good is....but yeah. I don't think you will find a cheaper price for the size at least.

What pots...I don't see any pots? If you want feedback, it helps to know what you are considering???

I know you said grandpa is an "expert" welder...no problem with a thinwalled pot I assume?

16" high x 18.5" wide, 1.1 mm thick. I'm not necessarily an "expert" in the best credentials for a brewpot. And yes, he was a welder for the military welding their nuclear powered submarines. Regardless, as others have said, i can roll with weldless fittings.
