Post by phytenphyre » 4 years ago

I just got a keg to transform into my brew kettle!! I didn't think about a picture before I started, but here is a before and after...all hand sanded. ImageImage Parts are on order to get it set up, I'm itching to do my first BIAB in it.

Looks good. How much time did it take and what grits of paper did you use?

I used 400 grit wet/dry sand paper. It took 3-4 hours of hand sanding to get it where it is now. I could easily step up to 600, 800, 1000 grit to really make it shine, but I don't want to spend that many more hours doing so.

I did just finish this part of the project, too!!

Nice work phyte ;),

There is going to be one problem though :dunno:. It will discolour or blacken probably after your first brew. The only thing I can think that might help here is coating it with Enduroshield Stainless Steel. This handles up to 550 C and should enable you to clean it with just a microfibre cloth after each brew. THe stuff is not cheap though.

:peace:
