I have been brewing for a couple years and slowly getting my all grain system going. I have 3 keggles and just need to get plumbing (valves and fittings and such) done on my hot water tank and mash tun. My boil pot is built and has stainless fittings and valves but I am wondering what the drawbacks are (if there is any!) with brass. I am using Star San on all my brewing eq is that going to a problem? If I move to decoction mashing will that be an issue with bronze? If I buy a brass ball valve can I use it with stainless nipples etc? Any other issues that you can think of would be great. Just trying to save some money.
