I talked with a friend yesterday about soldering SS. He was having difficulties soldering a fitting to an aluminum kettle. He will try again this morning.
One of the things he mentioned was this forum as he participates here. He mentioned this thread so I took a look this morning and decided to join and post a comment.
I've been using StayBrite-8 solder and StayClean liquid flux for years. I think it is a great solution for us brewers in fabricating equipment.
This is just one example of the possibilities (click the pix for the inside view)
Another is a fitting on a hopback that I fabricated:
The image is the dry fit - click it to see the finished joint.
One of the things I like about StayBrite-8 is that it has a plastic range that allows me to easily fill gaps.
Anyway, I figured I'd show off a little.
