    If the one example kettle wasn't passivated don't you think that the rust sports would have
    been more prevalent?Not on a kettle this new. He said that all he did with the kettle "is wash

    Everybody loses some quality assurance when they outsource manufacturing regardless of where.
    Very little is not manufactured in China. Good point. I agree.Please do not throw stones at

    So retail value is $259?It certainly looks that way, according to the manufacturer's website.

    I have not had good results with the quick lagering method mentioned above. I have only tried
    the quick method with 833. I have brewed the same beer with 833 using a traditional lagering
    schedule and ...

    of Oktoberfe...

    Point taken. I don't care for IPAs, so the largest hops bill i usually do is 3 OZ for a 10

    kettle valve and ...
