Keg polishing sucks
 
That is all.

And why I only have one little shiny spot on my keg. Polishing and shiny kegs are WAY overrated

Agreed. After hours of grinding/polishing and inhaling metal dust, I have a nice gradient. One keg shiny, they next more like brushed stainless, and the last untouched.

I never quite got the shiny keg thing.

They look ok I guess, but dang that's a lot of work for something that has no measurable effect on my brewing.

Clearly, the whole "bling" factor is lost on y'all...

I hope he remembered to polish the inside, and the bottom too;)



Looks great, BTW.

Polishing the first one was fun, polishing the second was ugg, polishing the third took me a month...lol

It does look awesome, but I would rather spend the time brewing and drinking a beer... If I squint my eyes just so, they look really shiny :-)

To all of those that have done it, well done and more power to ya! I'm just too damn lazy

Also don't forget that it's not just the initial polish that gets you. If you don't keep it up, after a few brews, they'll look worse than if you never touched them. It's the gift that keeps on givin' Clark.

Oh and polishing the bottom does actually add value do to better heat transfer vs a sooty bottom. Polishing the inside would make it easier to clean. So I guess polishing the outside is like the racing stickers on your civic, makes it look "better" but no real performance gain.

I was gonna ask if anyone had done the inside of their kegs, especially the BK, not as much crap would stick to it. +1 on racing stickers on a civic, or carbon fiber lol.
