Today I noticed a banner on HBT for a Chinese company selling beer kegs. I clicked on the banner and it brought me here; http://www.jcco-jinfu.com/en/cpzx-01...FQk75QodDA0Epw . Their website doesn't list any prices, so I can only assume they sell to wholesalers. Does anybody have any experience with these kegs? I might contact them to see if I can get a few half barrel kegs through one of their dealers. I recently had a friend ask me if I could supply a half barrel keg of homebrew for a big get together he is having (he would purchase all the ingredients for me). My only problem is finding a usable Sanke keg. Anyway, this banner caught my eye and I thought I'd ask around first. Thanks.

You could always just get a keg of crap beer and then use it when empty for your homebrew for this event. Then you could return for your deposit after the event. I don't think anyone could consider that stealing, just borrowing for a couple of weeks.

Don't you have cornies?? If not, now is a good time to get some, you'll have them forever, and you could get your friend to chip in.

I have 10 cornies, but that's not what I want. I won't be at the event and my friend would prefer 15 gallons of beer in the same keg. The alternative is that he will get a commercial beer. This may be the route he goes anyway, but it would be nice to have some nice half barrel kegs anyway. I'm in the process of getting my brewers notice (I currently brew 1 barrel batches), so eventually I'm going to need them.

I can't stand it when wildwest450 gets involved in a thread. I instantly can't read because I can't tear my eyes from his damn avatar!

This is an option. But I think I'd like to own one so I don't have to go through this every time. Hmm, I suppose I could try your approach once before I invest in my own sanke. Its something to think about, thanks.
