This is my brew pot. I made this out of an old beer keg that that i found locally. I cut a twelve inch hole in the top. Then drilled two 3/4 inch holes in the side. I had a friend weld the fittings in place for me. One hole was for the thermostat and the other was for the ball valve. I also made the stand for the burner. I used some angle iron and an old burner from a turkey fryer.
