It's nice. Anheuser-Busch will be pleased.

What did you use? I'm thinking about polishing up my corny kegs.

Are you going to actually polish it up, or leave the satin finish on it?

Most of my corny kegs were bought new (2.5 or 3 gallon sizes) with a satin finish. Since they spend most of their time in the dark (either the brew fridge, or basement) I don't feel the need to polish them up. Not to say I wouldn't, but not as much need. Now, my 1 gallon kegs I might just have to polish up.



Of course, I'll need to remove the label first.
