Subscribed.. Very nice build.
Be careful with that converted kettle shown in the picture at left. I noticed your fittings are directly above the "vent hole". That heat that comes out of the hole is extreme when your burner is running. It can melt the rubber handle on a ball valve.
I also used Solarflux for my stainless fittings. What tricks did you have to clean the excess solar flux off the keg after the weld? Is there a trick to that?
