Hello Everyone,

I have been at it, thinking left and right if I should upgrade my kettle, Im coming from a 10.5 gallon kettle and decided why not just use this sanke keg my friend gave to me as my kettle. So my question is how exactly do you polish your keg to look professional? Do i sand it down then polish it? What do you guys recommend

Do a search for keg polishing.

If you searched and found a related thread, you should post specific questions there instead of starting a new thread. Just a suggestion so it helps everyone with similar questions in the future.

My keg is coming along, but every time I try to get to those ridges, creases and areas in the embossed letters I have problems. Any tips on how to really polish those hard to reach places?

What about using Barkeepers friend or flitz on a hand sponge...you know the ones with the 3m pads on the back....and really work it in there. Thats the way I polish up hard to reach areas.
