Decorating Corneys
Has anyone Decorated/stamped/painted your corneys?

I've got several now, and it'd be handy to be able to discern them from each other, as well as show ownership. I'm looking for ideas!

I just use a permanent magic marker to number each keg & lid so I don't get them mixed up.

I have a chest freezer for my kegs, so I used a paint pen from a hobby store and wrote numbers on the black rubber handles so I could easily ID each keg and what was in them. Nothing like wanting a light lawnmower beer and tapping into your chocolate stout!

Yeah, that's my first thought, but I'm wondering how hard it'd be to make metal ID bands for them or something, like a hammer on crimp or something. something like a belt.

You might be able to use a large worm drive hose clamp with some sort of tag with the name of the brew on it.

Or buy a few cheap colored caribiners and use one color for each type brew

'biners would be a good idea. I'm thinking more about the bands still... imagine a pre-made piece of metal, the circumference of the corney, with a loop of wire around the end of it... make it ... 1.5" tall. thread it through the wire loop and hammer closed for a permanent and hopefully tight fit. dunno if it's feasible though. :) i may just make some plates and hang them with the corneys. or stencils and spraypaint.

damn, I just use a post it and a piece of tape to label when the beer was brewed, when it was kegged and when it began carbonating. I take the paper off of it when it is empty and put a new one on when I refill it.

I will be painting mine with automotive spray paint as soon as they empty up. Mainly because I can't leave well enough alone but having them color coded would be nice too. :fro:

I put stickers on them so I know they are mine, and use ribbon and paper to create a hang tag with the contents:
