If  you use a 55g drum on its side, (as Robert suggests), how do you clean up  the boiler remenants after boiling?

1.  filter the beer from the fermenter to the boiler.
2.  I have a cleanout cut into the top (side) of the boiler and  there is a
2" bung at the bottom (end) to assist in cleanout with a water  hose.  Too bad
I can't attach a picture.
3.  washout can go to recycle for next batch...george

I just use a garden hose and rinse it out each time, a 55 gallon drum lasts about a year before it gets to rusty and you have to replace it anyway.

Get one of the drums that has a tension band to hold the top on.  The whole top comes off.
