Default What to do with a no good Corney

I was in the process of cleaning up a corney for future use, new to me, but used. Bought it along with 15 others and a draft system, so I am not really complaining that this one has a hole in it. There is a tiny pin hole in the side of the corney, about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way up the side. Any body have an idea for this, before I discard it.

You could use it for grain storage. IMHO, corny's are cheap enough that its not worth fixing the hole unless you have access to a welder.

Or you can fill it 1/2 full of star san and distilled water. It'll keep for a few months in there.

Silver solder a small patch over the hole and store starsan in it. It will last a long time if you use distilled water. Put a picnic tap on with a spray head.

Salvage the parts and sell it at a yard sale as a "Brewers Planter Barrel"

the parts, (lid, posts, pop-its.. etc) are probably worth more than the corny cost.

Patch it with some solder and use it for a non-pressure use - IE, a fermenter.

I recall seeing some pretty nifty burner screens made out of sections of a corny.
