    One disadvantage to bottling - the blending has to take place either in someone's glass or their belly.

    ......when you building your first keezer but still want to keep your beer cold.......glued the collar on, left the kegs in the keezer, put the lid on, put some weight on the lid to help blue the colour down, and waited overnight.

    Got up in the morning, so the temperature control program laying on the floor beside the keezer and said OH SH!T!!!! (that's when I knew I did it wrong)

    Three frozen Kegs.

    You want to etch volume graduations in your kettle because you're sick of using a stick. You carefully weigh each gallon of water (8lb 5.6oz) and mask each line off with black tape. You etch them perfectly and pour gallon by gallon of water back in to discover they are perfect!

    You set up your stencils to etch the volume numbers in. This is the icing!

    You turn your kettle right side up to admire your genius only to realize that something is horribly wrong :(

    You got the drift anyways. Freezing shouldn't harm it anyway. Wonder if it will help it drop clear?

    that model you see there is what I use, the sides are somewhat thick but the bottom's are not they work great for me though I have the 1 - 100qt and 2 - 80qt pots bought them with no drilled holes
