Posted in thread: So I realized I've been brushing my keggle's paint off with brass that contains iron. on 04-05-2010 at 10:32 PM
I plan on hitting the keggle with fine sandpaper once all the brushing is done, so hopefully
that will play a part. I think part of the re-passivation that you get when doing the
"scotch-brite + bar-k...

A little researching leads me to believe that I can re-passivate the surface of the SS by using
some scotch-brites and BKF. Hopefully this will help keep away the rust, otherwise I probably

Posted in thread: Anyone bottling in 9-12 oz. glass coke bottles? on 01-16-2010 at 07:15 PM

works, because i...
