Thread: Copper kettle

    Copper kettle



    Hi,

    I just finished Lars Garshol's book on Historic Brewing Techniques and it has got me thinking about brewing in older ways.

    I have a 80 liter copper kettle that has not been used in a while. How do I make it safe to brew in?
    I have boiled vinegar in it, and scrubbed it with a copper brush, but it still has a greenish patina, would it be safe to use as is?

    Copper is a fairly safe metal. I wouldn't use that pot for brewing though. Copper pots are MADE for distilling...
