Yup, you're right...it's 13.2 gallons (an even 50L). I'm definitely not using it as a BK but I'm gonna give it a shot as MLT. I do five gallon batches at present and my intention with this keggle is to step up to ten gallon batches (I've also acquired a 15.5 sanke for the BK).
I haven't done the math but I suspect 13.2 gallons will be cutting it close as far as capacity for a 10 gallon batch grain bill. The keg was free though so I figure I'll give it a shot. Worst case, I'll have to stick with five gallon batches until I can get my hands on another 15.5 sanke.
Also, regarding my original post...I'm not going to bother trying to fix the dent. I got a false bottom (from Jaybird) and it fits tight enough, even with the dent.
