Default Schlitz barrel-buy or not?

Someone from craigslist contacted me and says they have a Jos Schlitz aluminum 15.5 barrel with bung in the side. Should I make an offer? Was thinking about turning into HLT possibly. What should I bid on it?

If the price was riight, I'd buy it just cause it's kinda cool to have it. "Just a kiss of the hops"

I would pay $50.00 for it, and convert it to a HLT in a second.

I haven't actually seen it, but it is aluminum 15.5 and fat in the middle and skinnier on the ends. Not sure if it meant to be on side like a cask or what. Wondering how it would sit on a burner. Guess could get a HWH element in th e bunghole and go electric for the HLT.
