  • New brew pot recommendations?
    I still have not heard back from anybody at stout. I thought I'd search HBT for more

  • Old chemical tanks
    Since they are getting sold at a public auction and not being sent to Yuma Mountain I'd assume
    they didn't hold radioactive material or cyanide. Definitely double check what they did hold

  • Hairline crack on pot weld
    Simple answer send it back. You buy a welded kettle so you never have to deal with leaks again.
