Default $100 Sanke Keg

I'm looking to build a 15 gallon pot, and I found on craigslist that I can buy an unmodified Sanke Keg for $100. The keg is in good condition, anyone be able to say this is a good deal for a keg or should I keep looking?

I paid $20.00 for mine. It came from Easthampton, MA.

Keep looking. $100.00 would be a good deal if it was filled with beer though. $40.00- $50.00 bucks should be about right.

Deposits on them are 30 bucks. If you can stand to drink a keg of Bud, that's a much cheaper route. Better yet, throw a party and make other people drink it.

I am sure LOTS of people here would agree that a $30 deposit on a keg does not mean you own the keg. That keg still belongs to the brewery, and theft is something no one wants to see (especially if the idea came from this forum).

Just throwing that out there. There has to be a better way.

If you're going to cut one up, steal it from BMC...

I'm sure that keg was "acquired" the same way as if you were to never return one you put a deposit on. In such a case you might as well save the money and do it yourself instead of giving it to the guy on craigslist.

Yeah, most others are 50L anyway. And I am NOT stealing from them. I am borrowing it.

30 bucks is the going rate, no more. You can find one that has been modified for brewing at close to 100 dollars. Craigslist is good. Another source is a scrap yard. The scrap yard may have some laying around because they can't cut them up for scrap anymore. Its a law thing.

Stealing or not and moral or not if anyone is interested in calling up a guy that deals with keg losses at a good size craft brewery who would be willing to talk to you about it. If you truly are satisfied with the practice morally, you shouldn't find it difficult to make the call. Let me know if you want to take me up on the offer.
