It's a bit late to build a jig that works off the center opening, it's already cut off.

You can see the hole isn't exactly "round" although it's not terrible. From what they said, it was cutting...

"fixing" a keg lid opening

I've been rather busy with some other projects and don't have an angle grinder, so I had someone else cut an opening in my keg for a lid for me.

The opening is a bit "out of round" so it looks a...

They look really nice. Do you know any of the details on powder(s) they used? That looks rather similar to the "chrome" I used on some motorcycle parts. I quickly realized that it scratches fairly...

There are yeast calculators out there. You should be fine on yeast quantity. You really can't put too much (within reason) in, and if you put too little in, it will just take longer to start...

Well, if you want them carbonated, I suppose the simple way would just be to let them go until they stop bubbling, add some extra sugar and cap the bottles. You don't want to add too much as it can...

Haha... cattle prod is a rather apt description. People occasionally make these to back feed power into their house from a genny during power outages. They are usually referred to as a "suicide cord"

Pretty sure you wouldn't want to do this... in addition to taste concerns, I believe it can leach into the beer and you could end up with copper poisoning.

Would purging the second carboy (or keg, etc) with CO2 help alleviate or even eliminate oxidation?

You probably can find a cheap nylon MIP/FIP to barb (or whatever combo you need) fitting that would be great for that use.

White is single density, yellow is double, and pink is triple density (thickest). I only ever noticed pink being more thick than yellow and white, the latter two seem fairly close.
