CHI single handled kegs, $61/4 kegs
 
Just went to the CHI company site for a good deal and stumbled on the single handled ball lock kegs for $16 a piece! I grabbed four and after shipping (which I wasn't charged) it should come out at less than $25 a piece. Good deal for me.

Dayamn. I've been eyeing those cheap single-handle ones. At that price, coming out to $21.50 including shipping to my place, I might have to spring on 'em. Hm Hm Hm. Is it time to go to 14 kegs? Maybe :)

Wow great find I just ordered 4.

16 * 4 = .....

School me on these.

Other than the handle, are there any differences between these and "regular" kegs?

Chriso 10-20-2008 07:18 PM

Nope. No difference. Just the handle(s).

Thx, I am ordering some.

OT Question: I just got my first kegs in over the weekend. Should they smell like Pepsi?

These were supposedly "cleaned, sanitized and pressurized". One was under pressure when I got it, the other was not.

The sweet smell is likely caustic cleaner, it just smells like that. Rinse them three times for good measure.

And toss a scoop of OxyClean in with hot water. Caustic cleaner works great but you don't really know when they were cleaned, date wise.

I always treat anything that comes "clean" as questionable and clean it again myself.

Yes,
One should ALWAYS fully disassemble, clean & sanitize to your own standards every keg from any source (even ours) because Pepsi may have cleaned these some months ago.

PS: oh....as of 10/20 we are sold out of the single handle kegs. They went fast. May have more in the future at regular price when we get into the next cargo container batch.
