    I have that exact same kettle you linked to. I love it. I didn't think having a kettle with a
    ball valve would make such a change in my brew day, but it does. I first ran it with a hose

    Yes. Fruit Flies carry an enzyme, bacteria, wild yeast, something that will turn your beer into

    some wine ...

    move to fer...
