LOL, but I remain as unpopular as ever! My only point was that it would be stupid to risk brewing in a plain steel vessel and even more worser to brew a huge batch in one. Who gives a rats butt what I think anyway. It's just an opinion and we all know how those range. Go ahead and brew in an oil drum if you want to, but please be sure to post back with an honest review of the finished beer. Maybe it will work OK. Only one sure way to find out.

Is it any wonder why he never posted again? The dude is all sorts of iron oxide poisoned by now.

BTW: I LOVE how stupid ideas get all kinds of cheerleaders behind them. Yes, thinking outside the box is a virtue but thoughts should lead to research that actually prevent wasted time and bodily harm.

I was thinking exactly the same thing. Maybe he will post again when he's out of the hospital?

Yeah, that's why I said it sucks there was no pics posted as they always speak louder than words and that there is no way to prove that this wasn't just made up...

However, I wouldn't agree that it's a stupid idea. I feel it's best to present a logical, responsive opinion as opposed to an egotistical reaction, e.g., talking crap.

It's not an accident that certain material are rated for 'food grade' at certain temperatures and duration. Get some basic food handling information.

I am surprised that he said the coating held up to direct flame impingement. Maybe it was only the inside coating? The outside should have caught fire. I used a food grade drum to make a meat smoker this past winter and the first thing we did was put pallet wood in it and burn off the paint. Maybe the water inside kept the paint cool(ish).

Of course, that is outside of the normal problems with boiling in a painted steel vessel.
