Default 1/4 Barrels from craigslist.com



Sorry for the blurry pic but stumbled on these on a local Craigs Listing. !/4 Barrel (7.5 Gal) kegs.

Wondering if they are good for use instead of Corny's?

Has anybody used these? They are VERY clean Sanke kegs. Sanke fitting and dip tubes are ut and soaked in PBW along with the kegs and all are sparkling clean.

You can fit a carboy cap over the opening once you have the spear removed. Derrin also sells a really trick tri-clamp stainless cap.

It's a nicely made device. I picked one up without the thermowell.

I ferment in a sanke and just use a #10.5 stopper works great

I don't see why you couldn't use them for kegging in.. just need to use Sanke taps instead of disconnects.

Don't mean to threadjack. I can get my hands on one of the short 1/4 bbl sanke for $10, can this be used for a fermenter also? or is there some advantage to the tall/skinny 1/4 bbl kegs?
