    Im glad this worked for you. That zinc coating is bad when it vaporizes; causes flu like
    symptoms. I have read that muriatic acid or vinegar will remove the zinc.

    Very nice clean build. Can you post some pics of the interior. I need to build something
    similar for a buddy and I am curious how you installed the temp controller.

    My advice would be to start small, simple and cheap. You can always experiment using just one
    layer of aluminum and the welding blanket until you get the best performance. Then you can add
    the more pe...

    Keep in mind that the larger the gap the more the heat tends to ride the shroud instead of the
    side of the keggle. Also a rocket stove uses wood for fuel while we tend to use HP propane. I
    have never ...

    Take a look at the "Pot skirt" link below in my signature. That should give you some ideas and
    your in luck it works best on a keggle. You do need the welding blanket to help keep the wind

    Whats the reasoning behind insulating your keggles; are you brewing outside in the cold or is
    this strictly for a Mash tun?

    Post a pic of your set up so we can see what you are working with. I have the same burners but
    with the high pressure regulator. The high pressure reg would make the biggest difference but
    you really ...

    GreyRaven, the cooling I use has gone through some changes since the first keezer I made. If
    you have any questions post or pm me I'd be happy to answer them. Some have used a cheap
    aquarium pump to m...

  • Posted in thread: So my kegging journey begins.......with a few questions on 10-14-2015 at 02:09 AM
    My first kegerator was a Sanyo mini fridge. It worked well and is still in use by my brother in
    law. I made a small shelf that extended the compressor hump allowing the 5 lb tank to fit
    inside with tw...

I saw your post on the wood tap handles you've created. Are you selling these? If so, I'd be very interested in buying one. They are beautiful! and I am looking for a wedding gift for my sister and think one of these would be perfect! Please let me know!
