Avoid using the SS braided hose in your mash tun. They have a high failure rate. They work for a lot of people, but they don't for a lot of people as well. I was one of the "didn't work" crowd.

Maybe not. If you go the MFL route, the only thing that you need to hold off buying are the gas and liquid quick disconnects. That's the only thing that's different.

Going into your basement to your keezer to get some beer, pull the tap handle, no beer comes out, so you open the lid of the keezer and A HUNDRED RATTLESNAKES ARE IN THERE!

That would be worse.

My worst nightmare is having all of my brewing equipment and keezer stolen. That would be way worse than losing 5 gallons of beer to the bottom of your kegerator.

If they were ever used to hold anything that you shouldn't ingest, then you should not buy them, in my opinion. People have used corny kegs to hold and spray all kinds of nasty stuff. Pesticides,...
