I know it's a rookie question, but I'm a rookie in many ways.
Thanks in advance!
Oh boy, what a question to start with. I'm gonna try to prevent a landslide here for you.
You need to be aware that brewers own the kegs they ship their beer in and the deposit they charge is just that... they want the kegs back.
So, there tends to be MUCH discussion in a thread like you just started about legalities. I think most would say that dropping $30 for the deposit of a keg and just keeping it is probably not right (though many do just that). Then the question becomes to what extent are YOU suppose to go to make sure the keg you get from CL or a friend is "legal"?
I'm gonna stop at that point... as long as you are aware that brewers own the kegs, as far as I'm concerned you go to the extent you feel you need to ensure you acquire a "legal" keg.
(maybe this post will help keep your thread on track to help you actually build a keggle instead of debating the legality thing)
