Holy Kegs Batman! (When it rains it pours)
 
So I have been hitting all of my friends up at a few of the local distributors and the local micro-breweries to find me some 16 gallon kegs for brewkettle, etc.

No luck, until today. First I get a picture text of 3 kegs with the words "how many do you want?" from a friend of mine. Then my wife calls and says her client that works for the Miller Light house called her and said he has 3 kegs they are getting rid of :D

So I went from no kegs, to having access to up to 7, and possibly more :ban:

Of course I have read all about the issues with obtaining a keg, but considering the sources on these, I can't see where there is a problem. I plan on taking at least 4 or them, and may have homes for the others at fellow home brewers here in town.

Use the extras as fermenters

contacted the local brewery to see what kegs they're getting rid of to see if I could buy them. I gave them a price for 2 and they want me to stop by and take a look. I already have a keg, obtained from a friend.

It should be noted that a restaurant (regardless of the franchised name) doesn't own kegs so they can't just get rid of them or sell them. I could care less who does what with kegs and how they get them, but yes, legally there is a problem obtaining kegs that way. As I posted above, I got a keg from a friend which I use as an MLT, so I'm not condemning anyone for how they obtain their brewing equipment. ;)

I think it would be hard to verify the true source and legality of any keg. But, these came from the distributor not a restaurant.

Except the first couple, those came from a friend who works for a property management company. They basically have a warehouse full of goodies that people abandon when they move out. Since they deal with a lot of college kids, he had a little stack of kegs
