I found this on the side of the road. Now what?
I was driving along yesterday on the way to meet up with some guys from my homebrew club to pick up my grain from group buy. I looked off to the left and I saw a pile of junk beside the road and I noticed the pile contained a pony keg.


I turned around a went back and picked it up. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it but, it seemed too cool to just leave sitting there.

Do you guys have any suggestions?

I got 2 i ferment 5 gal batches in.

I think those hold 7.75 gallons. You could always turn it into a small keggle, and could probably boil 5 gallon batches in there if you watch for boilovers.

+1 to fermenting 5 gal batches. I use one but I think I'm moving back to my carboys. I miss seeing what's going on.

Definitely go back and pick it up. You'll find something to use it for!

I know someone who uses one as his HLT.

Thats what came across my mind!! I would convert it to HLT for sure. Then again I only do 5 gallons at a time.
