So we went bowling Sat in a Scotch-doubles tournament ( I bowl once a year, and that's the occasion) with a ton of friends, all of whom know I brew. One particular friend shows up with this

and says Happy Easter!!!

Apparently they are made locally in Kiel, WI. Or at least they were. They are no longer being made there, and he was able to get me the last one! He knows someone that works there & made the hookup. He says he tried to get me a 60-quart job, but they were all gone. The only difference in mine is there is no ball valve in it, just a port for one. NB sells these bad boys for $233, and he gave it to me for nothing!!!! He finally admitted that he did pay a little for it, but wouldn't tell me how much, and wouldn't accept any money.

I gotta give him the virgin batch outta that pot! He deserves that much! Only problem is, he's a Bud Light drinker, and I'll hafta make him something similar to please his palate! Ah it's worth it!

I like to squeeze the nickle until the buffalo craps-mt rob

Lucky Bugger. The Easter Bunny just left a pile of turds on my floor. That is a nice pot. The guy who gave you that deserves a case of pale ale.

Congratulations! All I got was candy and eggs.
