Default How much $$ for a BL Keg to make a Keggle?

Got a Bud light Keg from a guy at work, and thinking about making a keggle. Can someone tell me what it's worth? I got this from a guy I work with so I don't really want it for free, if you know what I mean! LOL

Default In Orlando

Usually Kegs sell for $30 in Orlando. When you get a keg that is also the deposit if you don't bring a keg to exchange. It may be different in you area.

This keg came from Virginia by accident on the moving truck. LOL

$30 is a good offer. Or trade a case or a 12er of home brew for the keg.

Just noticed this is your first post, have you been brewing long?

75-100 for the St. Louis area, but I think a ton of homebrewers steal them so they deposits keep going up...

Honestly, you'd spend over 100$ for a SS stock pot that big.

I traded 25 feet of silicone tubing for my keggle with the top already cut out.

Balto,
I have been brewing for about a year (20 or so batches) and have been visiting this site for most of that time getting ideas from the great DIY section. I have unfortunately been a lurker. I happened to see your question and thought it was easy enough to answer. I find a lot of great information on HBT and should probably try to add more to the community.

Call your local liqueur store that sells kegs of beer and ask them what the deposit is on the keg. Like I said in Orlando it is $30 so at any time I can go to the liqueur store and just buy an empty keg with the $30 deposit.
