I'm buying this Keggle for $120. Good deal or no? Keep in mind kegs are hard to come buy in Utah. They are illegal to buy unless you own a liquor license

In my opinion it is over priced. I would pass but that is just me.

Looks like it has over 60 bucks in hardware on it. Looks like a great HLT. Offer 100 bucks. It's not like he can sell it to just anyone at this point.

With the valve, thermo and sightglass I don't think it's too bad of a price.....esp if the supply is low.

Even with my sightglass, I agree the top cut removes value.$100 sounds right.

I agree with above posters. Although, with the bulkhead, thermometer and sight glass, it would be a good buy. $80-100. Get a dip tube and a false bottom, and you have yourself a 15.5 gal. kettle. Or keep it the way it is and use it as a HLT.
Not sure what your brew set-up is, but if you are looking to step up to larger than 5 gal. batches, I would go for it. Just offer to trade him some brews you come up with off of this kettle to lower the price. Then he may go even lower, you say he is a friend and all. HA

I don't think he's going to lower the price and I agree with most of you guys that 80-100 is more realistic, however because kegs are so hard to come buy I think i will do it as long as I can fix the top. How hard will it be to repair that cut? I'm assuming I just have to start all over

there looks to be enough room on the lip to go back with a plasma cutter and get a nice even lip. When I cut mine I just butted up to the inside of the walls for the handles and you should have a fairly even rim, go back over the edge with a couple of grinders to take off the edge to keep from having a sharp edge that you can cut yourself on. I'd offer less and then give him what he wants if he doesn't go for it.
