Default Brew Pot Ruined

My father in law was up visiting from the holidays. He's has high blood pressure and the drive up from Maryland made his feet swell, that and the mass amounts of ham he had at Christmas dinner. Anyway....whilst I was away...he decided that he need to soak his feet in cold water....as the wife and I weren't home, he decided that my 10 gallon brew pot (complete with sight glass, thermometer and ball valve) would be good for soaking his big nasty feet.

That pot is dead to me. Not making any "Feet Beer".

I think my exact words were, "Rich, what the F*&^* are you doing"?

He'd never hear the end of it but it certainly wouldn't stop me from brewing in it.

He should have steeped some hops with his feet!

I'm sure I can clean it, it's just that every time I look at it, I'll see his big, nasty hammertoes. Next weekend, I'll just drink a lot before I start!!
