comment Food Grade Steel Drums
This is an interesting idea, but they are expensive. Like nearly as expensive as a 55 gal Blichmann kettle. morebeer.com/products/… vs SS drum: google.com/…

comment tips to improve my Ginger Beer
Cool blogs, looks like you're doing some interesting stuff. You guys should make some beer with Brazilian ingredients! acai stout, or guava IPA or wheat maybe :) If you are satisfied with my answer please mark it the answer. Of course, feel free to leave it open if you want to.

comment Little hop aroma in first batch
Probably needs more hops! Aroma comes from late additions and dry hopping. Post the recipe. And compare your recipe to clone recipes of DIPA's that you like (e.g. homebrewtalk.com/f36/pliny-elder-recipe-questions-125517/…).

comment High water pressure compressor for washing bottles
I agree with Denny. PBW & Oxiclean are sodium percarbonate cleaners. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OxiClean PBW (powdery brew wash) is more powerful, oxiclean is cheaper, but both work and there are generic versions of oxiclean. You may be able to order PBW from wherever you are ordering your homebrew supplies. Or check a hardware store or wherever you buy cleaning supplies for a percarbonate cleaner. Works best if the water is over 140 degrees F to dissolve the cleaner, but it will work in warm water.

comment tips to improve my Ginger Beer
Are you making a fermented soda? When you say weak, do you mean the flavor is weak or are you talking about alcohol? obviously you want it weak in a soda.

comment What does skunked beer taste like, How would you describe skunked beer?
+1 @ChinoBrews If you really want to learn what something smells like, you need to smell it - you can't learn this by reading about it. Yuengling (green bottle) also skunks very easily in my opinion - you can try that if it's available near you and you are okay with sacrificing one.
