Default Sink For My Brewery

I am looking into a sink for my Kal Electric Clone. I would ideally like to stay 'economical' and not pay more than $250 for the sink. It would be great if it was easy to clean up and use to clean kegs without making a huge mess. Anyone have any ideas? I've been eyeing Craigslist for awhile now with no luck and need to find something so I can complete my design and get that plumber over.

I got my deep tub sink online at Lowes for 21 bucks recently.

Is it one of those plastic ones? They don't seem too bad, except that I hear people replace them all the time.

Years ago I got a cast iron bath tub from someone doing a remodel of their house. It worked perfectly for cleanup and dog washing when set up on some concrete blocks. Might find something on craigslist.

Look for mop sinks like this one:

Very nice and will last a lifetime.

I got a two bay slop sink in my brewery. Extra deep for kegs and carboys and a lot of room for cleaning bottles and such (I can fit almost 5 cases of bottles into the sink using both sides). you should be able to find them on Craigslist pretty easily, thats where I got mine. Look for slop sink, laundry sink/tub, etc.

Check junk yards. Last trip I saw so many different sinks and tables it looked like they had a couple dozen restaurants worth of gear in their stainless area.

I have a SS double kitchen sink I scored for free. It's mounted in a wooden stand I threw together.

What I want is a SS prep table to mount it in. Be a sweeet portable sink then.
