It's a miracle! A mere two days after being advised to find a keg to hack into a 15 gallon brew pot, we found an abandoned keg with a broken valve behind a local brewery. We brought it home, and the next day Tristan valiantly hauled said keg on his bicycle (impressive!) to a metal shop we had noticed a few blocks from our house. Lo and behold, the guys at the shop agreed to hack the keg for $18. The cost of a real pot that size? About $180!! So our hack cost 1/10th the going price.
