I've seen videos of similar builds on YouTube. Copper would be ideal followed by stainless.

I have one lid and keg combo that only fit one way, but normally it shouldn't matter

I use a pump based keg cleaner, before that I would disassemble the keg and soak the parts inside. The dip tube sticks out a bit

Damn! I've done that, but I used the malt, made a fine beer. If you think of where malt comes from, the garage floor doesn't seem all that bad ;)

+1 Mine turned good as well.
I do this, only issue I see is if there is oil of chemicals on the floor.

I like whatever I can get local. I love castle malts, but can't get them without shipping.

I've used mash hops once on Janet's brown and never after. It does smell awesome. Throwing $0.50 worth Columbus or cascade in the mash isn't going to break the bank.


Wow, that's a lot of personal attacks over someone posting something contrary to your opinion.
I'll be the first to admit to getting into arguments with Mark, but I don't see his response as an attack.

I wouldn't worry either if I trusted the source. AiH has a solid reputation and I have been more than happy with their service.

It's a third party that inspects an item to ensure it complies with applicable regulations for its use. I know AiH has(d) kegs that were from a manufacture that has since been certified, but they are moving the old stock out before new stock.

I use FWH on any style that is hop forward.  Although I've never done side by side comparisons, I think it gives a smoother bitterness, with more hop flavor than a regular boil addition.  Even though the measured bitterness may be higher, the perceived bitterness seems lower.

I agree. I brew an all FWH kolsch and it has amazing smooth bitterness and great hop flavor. Anecdotal evidence aside, it works well for some beers. Definitely try it and see for yourself.
+1 - one of my favorite beers.
