The idea that someone "repurposes" some piece of equipment and that makes it automatically safe to use is clearly an unwarranted assumption. Unwarranted assumptions can make a person a quick nominee for a Darwin Award......

This might make a good sticky over in the DIY section. Probably would need a title modification too.

I know this is kind of an old topic but for those wondering why they have holes drilled in the bottom of kegs it is to let pressure out while welding.

If you look at bicycle frames you will see they have tiny holes drilled in the tubes where they meet the bottom bracket. This is so the tubes don't explode when they are welding them together. Custom frame builders will weld the hole shut afterwards since that takes only a small tack weld.

The one kegs that exploded while being used for brewing was a fluke, someone forgot the safety holes, the welder was the lucky one in that case.

Still, it is a good idea to check your kegs...

I copy that! No reason our repurposed stainless kegs shouldn't be safe to use as boil pots. But I will most certainly make sure mine has a couple of holes in the rims. Forewarned and all that!

Also, if they clean them like cornies, they go into a big dishwasher with caustic and steam/boiling water. It would be rather dangerous to trap caustic solution in there and have it leaking out here and there.

The link won't seem to work or me. If I remember correctly this is relating to the holes on the bottom skirt of kegs. Anyone care to post pics/further explanation?
