No Citrus Shortage: Passivating The Boiling Kettle

After years and years of abuse use, it was time to really clean the boiling kettle. In fact, I decided to go ahead and passivate the stainless steel. I have a big old bottle of Acid #5, but... I also have an entire yard full of citrus fruit -- way more than I can eat. Or even give away, really. So, I cut up a few dozen tangerines and lemons, tossed 'em in the keg (after a mondo scrubbing) and filled her up with water. My favorite part was drinking the run off. Yum. The keg now sparkles.
