I bought two 50L kegs today that have the rubber top and bottoms.

I got both for $30.

What can I do with them?

Should I just sell them for scrap to get a couple without the rubber?

I'll add some pics later.

Thanks

Ferment in them or go electric.

I think I'll just sell them for scrap and try to get another one without the rubber.

I'll trade you for them, for regular ones, but shipping may be counter productive... i'm in 75034

Thanks for the offer...but I'm about 110% sure shipping would kill it!!!

I live in Paradise, Newfoundland, Canada.

I'm guessing it would cost hundreds of dollars to ship them.

Now I picked up two more of the rubber top kegs for $10!!!

So...I have four in total.

Again...my inclination is to sell them for scrap and buy the ones without rubber.

However, I am thinking electric these days!!!

Don't sell them for scrap.


Use them to ferment your 10g batches in. They're perfect fermenters.

Are they just rubber coated at both ends with 100% stainless inside or did they bond rubber so only the filler and sides are stainless?
Like above reply great for fermenting plus a set of 4 the same keep 'em.
Lucky find.

You can insulate it and use it as an MLT.
