Just found these in a neighboring town for a good price. I wasn't originally planning on using kegs, so I'm not positive if these are what the majority uses for BK and HLT.

Can anyone confirm these are what I want before I make the drive?

Thanks

I'm pretty sure those are Sanke kegs although I would need a closer look with the covers taken off. If the price is good you should definitely grab them. I hear they are great for converting into a brew pot or keggle or whatever. I suppose you could use them to actually keg your beer but from what I understand it is a bit of a PITA to take them apart and clean them unless you have special equipment. It's probably worth the trip though. I think they usually go for 70+ and they are worth at least a $30 deposit where I live

Have one of these converted to a brew kettle (keggle), works great.

Well, you win. I am kegless.
Looks like it was some sort of scam/troll. Drove an hour and a half to meet the guy, he doesn't show or answer phone anymore.
While waiting I googled "3 kegs", guess what the top picture result is.

-1 for my faith in humanity.

aww man that is a real bummer. If you have brewery near you you might just call them and see if they have any damaged kegs they would sell to you. I've heard of guys getting good prices on kegs that way, and its legit
