Polar Ware SS boil kettle scratched
« on: May 05, 2013, 03:28:02 PM »
First brew today with my 10 gallon Polar Ware stainless. I ended up stirring a little bit during the boil w. a stainless spoon. Unfortunately, the bottom of the kettle has little scratches now! Did I ruin the kettle? Should I contact Polar to see if this is a defect? Thanks.

Just remember, if anything has something buggy in it and is then exposed to boiling water/wort, them bugs be dead:D  The only things you should beware of that has large scratches in it is plastic.
