    after giving it a bit of a clean, spayed it with rust remover, got scews out, found some mico cracks in tank, filled it up with parrifin yesterday to see if leaking, and it was, so now going to give it a good old elbow greese clean, and put some magic metal putty around rim,

    Congrats on your German Turm.
    It is for alcohol/Meths for sure.
    You could also - depending on the cracks - seal it from the inside or maybe soft solder it?
    They are great indoor stoves with a great simmer. outside they may take a while if its just a bit windy.

    Its great for a brew!
    Main thing is to get it properly 100% clean before soldering it. A small pen torch might do it here.

    Other replies in before me confirming ethanol/meths only.

    A simple.pen torch will fix any small leaks, and as said ensure the area is clean, fine wire.wool.and fluxed. The pencil torch will heat in very small areas.
