Default For Sale - WTB: Sankes in the SF Bay Area

I've shot some emails out to the local breweries (Lagunitas, Marin Brewco, Iron Springs, Moylans, and Anchor Steam) in the hopes of snagging a couple of kegs to convert to keggles, but no responses yet. A scan of Craigslist showed a few for sale, but all outrageously priced ($100 on average) and ethically questionable. (One ad I spotted actually said "I make a couple bucks, you save me the trouble of returning my keg to BevMo, you get a keg, win win"!!)

If any fellow Bay Area brewers spot decommissioned kegs for sale for the going rate (checked Craigslist in Seattle and Denver, found tons of 'em for $30-$40 each... sound about right?) or have some you'd like to part with, lemme know?

You willing to come down to Fremont? We have a couple "problem" kegs that will need gaskets n such replaced to be put back into production. So far we haven't decided if we're going to fix them or not. How many do you need?

I see them all the time on craigslist for $40 or so. Usually about 1 every 3 weeks or so. Keep checking and I'm sure one will come up soon.

Two for sure, for a HLT and boil kettle. Haven't decided if I want to go the whole hog and do a keggle MLT, or just stick with my Igloo Ice Cube (which does the job nicely, in fairness!)

As for Fremont?! Ooof! But for keggy goodness, I could make the trip! (Probably not until after the 18th tho, since I am ab-so-lute-ly slammed at work - don't even have time to brew! ) How much you want for them?

mrtrav,

Do you happen to have any more kegs? I will get in line behind ubermick.

ubermick,

I won't snake the kegs from Fremont from you but, if you don't want them please post or PM me so I can go after them. I'm looking for two.

Thanks!

We actually have 6 that are problematic, so no worries about snaking them from anyone . I will talk with the guys here so we can make a final decision about fixing or selling. I just recently cleaned the **** out of the insides with our keg cleaner, so you'll be set there

That's great, let me know when you decide and how much you want for them.

I can pick them up Saturday.

Travis, I also DEMAND that you clean the outside, polish them, remove the tops, drill the fittings holes in each, install a sightglass/thermometer and ball valves (Blichmann, none of this cheapo stuff, mind!). And... um... fill each of them with cash. Yeah, cash!

(Or... I could just come down, pass on however much, snag 'em, and do the work myself. Either way. Whatever's easiest! )

Well, ubermick, I was going to plate it with platinum and fill it with solid gold, but if you just want me to throw in a couple of $1's that's fine too :P
