Ale pails work just fine. Also larger HDPE containers on eBay

I am hopin we can get a group buy organized on the kegs. I really want a few more to use for force carbing mead, hard lemonade, and to lager in since they fit in my basement fridge so well.

Me too. Hard to keep pipeline with limited kegs. I like to condition in kegs but only have 3. If I had a few more I could move beers off yeast as soon as they hit FG and yeast health would improve for harvests. Frees up a fermenter too.

Thanks,

I'm hoping so. Order should be placed today if the vendor doesn't have issues with this storm (he's in KC). I've asked him to let me know ASAP when he has a delivery ETA.

FYI
Regarding a group buy on kegs, This guy is located near Chicago and offers group/club discounts on orders over 30 kegs. His name is Scott Graves <cornykegman@gmail.com>
I have no cnnection to him other than being on his mailing list.
Here's a recent email I received from him.

Good news fellow home brewers

I will have a new shipment of 1600 cornies available in Mid March, pre-orders are being taken now, just email me and let me know how many to hold for you, It took me three months to be able to acquire, a load this size, and prices are skyrocketing, most brew shops and online retailers, if they have them are charging $60 and up, I'm going to be charging $55, plus shipping. Local Chicago orders are always available for pick up. So please include your zipcode for an accurate shipping quote . These will be coming to me pressurized already, so I will ship them to you that way and supply you a set of 5 new o-ring with each keg ordered a $5 value in its own right.

I hope this finds you and your brews all well.


The last lot I had this size sold out in under 8 weeks, and used cornies are disappearing at an alarming rate as our beloved hobby has become more popular in the last few years, Please order accordingly, and plan for the future as well.

discounted pricing is available on lots of 30 or more, and I'm more than happy to come to Chicagoland based brew club meetings to do sales there, just send me an email.


SWG

$55 per, before shipping? Noooope. Guess I'll stick to the kegs I have. If I run out, wellp, guess it's time to step up to sankey kegs instead?

No, that's mea culpa. I thought I had everyone on the email thread and left you off

SHould know by tomorrow on delivery date, but looking like next week. Snowstorm could cause a bit of a delay.
