Working on my keggle, i watched your videeo a few times and i'm happy to say i cut the top off without losing any fingers. I cut it with the grinder attachment on the roto zip, had to make a different kind of jig of than yours. I u-bolted a block of wood to the handle of the roto zip and it fit over the rim of the keg, took about ten minutes to cut.

I bottled the ESB about 2 weeks a go. I let the Appfelwein ferment for 5 weeks and then bottled it.

Yeah Mike, it shaped up pretty well. It's not perfect by any means as I wished it fermented out 2-3 more points but you can't win them all. I know the batch #1 guys are going to like theirs plenty. Soulive said it got down to 1.012 or something. It just goes to show how mash temps change everything.

My portion kicked last week. I was pretty happy with it, as were my friends. I actually had a commercial ESB the other day that tasted just like ours

True that. Unfortunately, I think I screwed up the mash temperature on my first AG due to using a crappy dairy thermometer. Oh well. Live and learn. I bought a digital thermometer this past weekend.
