at one of the local liquor stores here if you don't bring the keg back in 48 hours they won't return the deposit. You can exchange it for another keg as a deposit, but you can't get the deposit back. since I can no longer drink a half barrel in 48 hours is it wrong of me to keep the keg.

Do you know if that's the case of all of NYS or just NYC? I'm going to be in the Poughkeepsie area for Christmas and this is a good deal.

A previous discussion drove me nuts so I started with the NYS penal law and ended up speaking to one of my friends who is an assistant DA in Brooklyn. I laid out the entire thing in a post somewhere. Basically, in NY state, when you transfer ownership of a packaged item, you transfer the package also. The keg deposit and promise to return it is a civil arrangement between the parties, nothing more. If a brewery or distributor wants some sort of recourse, they'll have to bring you to civil court, a highly unlikely scenario.

Good job on getting your kegs. All I can say is you have bigger stones than I do, to meet up with a stranger late at night in a dark secluded place with a cash transaction on the line.

That's crazy you had to go through all that to get a couple kegs. But the good thing is now you have them. I'm glad my search for kegs went nothing like that. I bought two from a cop who had them for years and then I saw one at a scrap yard when I went to sell a bunch of cans and bought it. Both transactions took place in the light of day and no shady business.

My thoughts exactly. There's no keg task force out there looking to take people down. I'm willing to bet a good majority of the corny kegs out there are technically "stolen" as well. have fun brewing well over 200 gallons a year on our stolen land with the kegs you paid honest money for. If the company that these were "stolen" from wanted them back/wanted to be reimbursed for them they'd either a) contact the person who signed for them or b) charge the card the deposit was left with in the amount of the difference. If the store is taking cash deposits they're not very smart and got caught slipping. Brew free or die!

Well, when they start charging $150 on a keg deposit in NYS we will know why.

Unless you buy them directly from the brewery, yes.
