Is there a VO friendly paint I can use on the inside of one of my 55 gallon drums?

I used aircraft epoxy paint to coat the inside of the cone I attached to a paint lined drum. It works great! i've been using it for 2 years and no issues whatsoever. Be sure to use an acid to clean before painting. Prep is soooo important.

others talk about using POR-15 that is used to stop rust in tanks, but is said to hold up to WVO. POR-15 is cheaper than aircraft epoxy paint. I suspect any epoxy paint will do the job...
