i dont think lead in brass being the heaviest metal, with a pretty high boiling point, is going to say hey I'm gunna go up this boiler & through the still to fuck these blokes up.

but you can get the same gear in SS for a few bucks more if it makes you feel better ;-)

What I'm getting at is, i would like to use a brass tap for my drain, only because I already have one. I will be using ss fitting into the keg it will only be the tap that is brass. Would this be ok? Or should i just bite the bullet and go ss?

For a drain in a boiler the brass will be fine as it isn't in the vapour path, if the fitting is below the wash volume you will be ok.
