Default Dented kegs are not a problem for keggle purposes, right?

Well, I took the first major step towards becoming an all grainer today. I went out and bought myself a used keg. For $20 bucks i just couldn't pass up the deal. It is a pretty dented and scratched up keg though. The scratches are just surface level but some of the dents are pretty big. However, since I'm just gonna use this as a giant brewpot, it shouldn't be a problem, right? Any stories of dents causing keggle problems?

I know I know, I would RDWAHAHB but my batch isn't ready yet

It'll be fine. Ugly, but fine. Look at it this way, now it won't really matter if you BierMuncher the cut in the top.

Notice how we can now use BierMuncher's name as a verb.

"Wow, that's really ugly. You sure BierMunchered that one!"

As long as it will sit flat, I don't think it's a problem

Well, I don't think I'm gonna be able to keep this keg. I got it the dishonest way. I'm gonna return it.
