Subject: chipped porcelain brew pot

Hey there,
I've got an enamaled porcelain brew pot with a quarter sized chip in the bottom. Every time I take the pot out to brew a batch I've got to work hard to remove the recently formed rust on the exposed steel. Does anyone have any suggestion (aside from buying a new pot) on how to fix the porcelain? In the mean time, will a little rust be harmful to the wort?

Next, two requests.
Can someone please mail me a copy of the postscript "" from ?
I would like to brew a barleywine similar to SN Bigfoot Ale. Are there any recipes around?

Last, one idea.
I've found a bottle washer that works pretty good. I unscrew the sprayer head on the kitchen sink sprayer and use the hose to quickly rinse bottles. Don't forget to put it back before your wife uses the faucet and gets squirted.
