As a fermenter it would be as easy as taking the shaft out and sticking a bung the size of the opening or sealing the opening (keeping the shaft and ball valve in) and cutting a whole the size of a carboy bung and calling it a day.
So, after thinking I scored at least one good keg it was brought to my attention last night that the one I have is aluminum. Dang! Back to having "0" kegs, because I don't want to make a MLT out of aluminum. I guess I could still make a keggle out of it, but I'm still bummed that it's not SS..

OK, EDITING this post.. I suspected that the guy who told me my keg was aluminum might have been wrong. I found an ancient thread about determining if it was AL or SS by using a strong magnet to see if it was SS. The verdict.... the magnet stuck! I'm back in the game!

Those are the most beautiful urinals I have ever seen! Did you make them? If so, how did you bend the edges on the top to make the "bullnosed" edge?

Oh, you're in El Paso! I think a mutual friend of ours was telling me about you last night.. His name is Albert.

I realize this post is almost a year old but, does your friend or do you have any other kegs sitting around that you are not using that you would part with?

Like you I have a hard time paying good money for an empty keg with no beer inside. Also, trying to go the ethical route.

I am in Tampa. Let me know.

Thanks.

I still have one I was planning to use as a fermenter. Would consider parting with it If it led to a temp controlled fermentation chamber. I would be up for a trade of some kind. Thoughts?
