I was taking an old stove to the scrap yard today and ran across these...

So I walked away with 6 corny kegs and 8 bucks for an old stove...not bad.

My question is, what should I do with them? I already have a fridge full of cornies for serving, and I have enough carboys for fermenting. I have the ability for pretty much any fabrication, just looking for some inspiration.

I don't know if it makes a difference, but I understand cornies are sometimes used for carpet cleaning chemicals and other lovely things.

I think an overnight soak in hot PBW and a starsan soak will take care of anything on the stainless, just replace the gaskets and poppets if you are concerned.

I would definitely recommend keeping the kegs though, they seem to be rising in cost, so if you ever need more in the future, you'd have to pay more to get them then. I have 90 kegs, and am still looking for more.

So that's where all the damn kegs went!!!

If you were closer, I'd come get them from you...Nice score! Keep 'em for future use.
