    I just put a spigot into a aluminum pot that I had, dummy here used some oil from the garage to lubricate the pot while I drilled the hole. Now it smells like oil. I boiled water in it to see if the smell would go away but I don't think I worked as well as I had hoped.
    was wondering if boiling some hops in it would fix this.
    What would you suggest?
