I recently got a black plastic covered Miller Keg and I'm thinking about getting into all-grain brewing. Would I be able to use the keg for anything in the all-grain process? If so, for what and how..any info would be awesome!

I made one into a mash tun. Used it for the first time this weekend brewing up BM's OktoberFast Ale. It dropped 2deg F over an hour long mash. Seemed to work pretty well.

Standard home depot angle grinder. I just went freehand and it came out pretty well. Ended up with a bit of the black rubbery stuff on my pants though. It's never coming out, oh well, I got a decent mash tun out of it.

I used a screwdriver to 'mark' the spot, drilled a pilot hole with 1/4" speed bit and then a step bit from home depot (was about $40 iirc). The rubber/plastic stuff on the keg really keeps the bits from walking. It was much easier than the other two.
