So, my old man was asking me about brewing some time ago. I thought he was just making conversation, however, it turns out he was looking for christmas gift ideas. I mentioned that I was going to try to convert a keg to a keggle soon. Sure enough, he found a keg and attempted to do it himself and give it as a gift to me.
Unfortunately, he hasn't had much experience working with stainless steel (like most of us). He ended up using a cutting torch to take the top off. The cut is very rough and pretty ugly but I think I can clean it up by cutting the outer edge off (widen the circle) using a rotozip and be fine.
The problem is there is a bunch of metal scrapping laying in the bottom that is not coming out easily. I rinsed it out multiple times but still have pieces left. Obviously I don't want to brew if there is any chance of metal debris ending up in the beer. I am also afraid the scrub on it to much, since the metal could start scratching up the stainless steel once it get stuck on the cloth. Has anyone else seen this? Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
