Hot as hell. Reminds me why I don't like brewing during the summer. Not as bad as last year but bad enough.

Good job on the weldless valve installation. I like the pick up tube! I need to do that, too.
I remember looking at step drill bits at the local hardware store and seeing the price around $40-50! No way, man!
I found it online for around $12. Cuts like (cold) butter through metal.
dak - i like the idea of putting the valve on the bottom of the bk but have you had any problems with heat damaging the valve? I suppose i could actually make a fitting that connects to the bottom and runs out away from the direct heat a bit.
Also, I agree, the hardest part about the drill bit is preparing myself to drill into a new kettle.
