Default Yard sale SCORE!!!

My son just called me from a yard sale "DAD, HOW MUCH DO YOU PAY FOR CORNEY KEGS" I told him about 40 bucks used and asked him why he wanted to know. " I AM AT A YARD SALE AND THERE ARE 2 KEGS HERE JUST LIKE YOURS FOR SALE" i asked him how much and he said he didn't know and I heard him ask the guy how much they were. I heard the guy tell him he had 2 more in the garage and would take $1.00 a piece for them!!! My son bought all 4 of them and I told him that if the guy had kegs he probably had a tank and regulator also. He asked the guy and he didn't have a regulator but he sold my son a 20 lb tank for $5.00!!!
I havent seen em yet but had him make sure they were ball locks ( for a buck each I didn't care) he said 3 of them had soda syrup in them and were under pressure cause he pulled the relief valve and they released..one had the lid but it wasn't on the keg.

I don't do yard sales cause I already have too much junk. BUT, you just gave me a great idea. I'll just tell my relatives that do go to them to watch for brewing related items for me. Thanks and congrats on a great find.

I just tore these apart and hosed em out and filled em with oxyclean.. I am not so sure a buck each was such a steal lol.. I am not sure I have ever seen anything that gross before.

Oxy will clean em. I just picked my fermentation fridge (19 cu ft) at a garage sale for $45. Had it running all night with no problems. Yay! I can finally lagger.

Nice. Can't complain about that deal, but the CO2 tank will probably need to be inspected if it's been sitting in his garage for years.
