    Like new :) the works, wipe clean with acetone soaked rag, then a coat of oil based primer, then oil based paint.

    It's about time to fill up those kegs with some Oktoberfest homebrew, so they will be ready come the end of September. I also bought some root beer extract, that I'll keg for the kids to drink, non-alcoholic with co2 gas of course.

    I really did come out good. I'm glad I was able to get the rust stopped.

    I brewed up two 5 gallon batches of Oktoberfest, a amber & a dark. I'm fermenting in my new/old corny kegs, with blow off tubes, into a bucket of Starsan. Both with be fermented with Safelager 34/70 that needs to primary ferment @ 55 degrees. Hopefully 10 gallons of Oktoberfest will be enough for the party. I'm also going to make 5 gallons of root beer (non alcoholic/CO2 gassed) for the grand kids to drink during the party.

    The beginnings of the Oktoberfest party started this morning. I have ignition from the blow off tubes of both Oktoberfest brews :)
