      Camping coolers use the same method today, with a water absorbent material on the outside covered with perforated aluminum and plastic inside,

      Good for keeping your beer cool Bruce.

    Re: Best way to reach 450Psi for leak test?

    Yes I think it is feasible, but my main concern is to get an pressure test above the normal compressor ratio, for the read it is recommended to be 1.43
