ok so I went to town today (20 min drive) and I stopped at one of the local Beer distribitors ( *%#up PA laws) and got my self a case of 16 oz guinness cans for $34 ( about 5-6 dollars a 4 pack) which is better then $10.00 yes $10 for 4 cans.

anyways. I talked to the dist. and he said he would sell me a keg for $10 ( deposit) . I assume that the kegs are 5 gallons. ( they look about the size of my carbouy( is it carbouy or carboy) again...anyways... should I be looking for a barrel for doing ..say 10 gallon full boils?

and TROEGS is Awesome!!

Okay double blue is 15.5g Half Barrel. There is a European version that is 50L (13.2G) Either one can be converted to a Boil Kettle, HLT or Mash Tun.

It is rarely used by HBers to serve but some (few) have converted them fermenters.

The black and yellow is a 5G pony. It's like a corny but like the 1/2B it has the SanKey fitting on the top making it difficult to clean and costly to get multiple fittings for so it is rarely used by the HBer.

Just throwing it out there.....




Technically, the distributor doesn't own the keg, and doesn't have the right to sell it to you for the deposit. Someone's getting ripped off. It's a big issue for a lot of smaller breweries.

Glad you said it Bird, I get tired of preaching about that................I feel like I sound like a Sunday School teacher

And yes, buying a keg from the distributor for the deposit price amounts to theft.
