      I had several cornies soaking in cleaning solution. Since they were in the way for the holidays, I put them outside. Now that Thanksgiving and Xmas is almost over. I thought I’d bring one in to empty and transfer a beer into. Low and behold, it was split down the side from top to bottom!! 🙁 :angry: 🙁

      He’ll be donating all his vital parts to keep others alive and well. Even the skin from the split body will be put to use. I’m sure small sheets of SS can be used somewhere on the 1.5 barrel system.

      Did you have that Better Bottle near the pool while brewing in the Hamptons?

      I’m techno challenged. When my daughter gets out of the shower, I’ll ask her to use her phone to take a pic and get it posted.

      I guess I’m not so techno challenged. I had to walk Ali trough it.

      I had no idea it was such a tragic weekend Dave. I’m glad that Mr Cornelius signed his organ donor card.

      I quickly found recipients for all the usual parts. Just the skin left to use. I know just the recipient for pieces of it.

      Regarding your picture, . . . I had a pair of pants like that once.:woohoo:

      P.S. You could use the skin for a wind screen on your burner. Cut to size and pop rivet.
