Basic newb question here, but I am getting conflicting answers. I have a nice aluminum canning pot that I would like to use for homebrew as well (just getting started after many year hiatus). Is aluminum (raw aluminum, not anodized or teflon coated, but I assume has a good oxide layer on it) okay for use as a brew pot? I dont want metallic tasting beer. There is some scale on it (from canning) that I would plan on removing before use.
Thanks in advance.
