I don't know what kind of reaction you would have with the methanol and galvanized steel. I keep galvanized far away as possible from my ethanol production. I read that bad things get released when hot ethanol hits the galvinazation, I would assume that methanol would do more of the same if not worse.

TImberwolf,

Can you be more specific on using the soda keg?

When I find these, I collect them for homebrewing (beer) and think using one for reclamation makes good sense. But what do you mean by "liquid weld" and have you had any trouble with the rubber seal on the top mounted bung opening? I don't think it is Viton--just regular rubber.
