I've got 10 corneys and 2 5 gallon sankeys to do. All are in great shape but are "cloudy". What method did you use and how long did it take?

Here is a picture of my full size keg that I am in the process of converting to a keggle.

I have already cut the hole in the top and I am in the process of polishing it.

I used the same angle grinder that I used to cut the hole in the top, to polish the keg up. Of course, I had to get some polishing wheels to use on it.

I do have some cornies that I need to polish as well.

Here is the thread that details the process and equipment needed:

"polishing your keg" is more than a clever euphemism

Although most of those are the big kegs, you can use the same process on the cornies as well!

I've used cleaning compound then polishing compound then Mothers aluminum / stainless polish. It took more than 4 hours and they didn't come out as nice as yours. It looks like Bluemagic may be the ticket. Thanks.

Just started mine last night I'm not worried about a mirror finish and getting out every scratch I just wanted them to look decent .
