man I wonder what kind of shape they are in? I mean I trust you mparsons, but if the guy is a jack wagon does that mean he will give us 100 of his crappiest kegs? They fact that they are stored outside like that uncovered concerns me a bit.

You would have to be our ambassador. Like go there and pay as you pick through to make sure they aren't total crap. I am sure one or more of us could help pick kegs out on the day of. If we did 100 obviously we would need some cars!

Tentative interest:

mparsons - ?
twogunz - 4
cidahmastah - 2-4

That yard full of kegs looks pretty wild. I agree with Cidah though, id be nice if somebody eyeballed each. Other than that I'd think about ordering some more from kegglebrewing or try the corneykeg.com converted pin locks which come with brand new posts.

Put me down for 5. Pickup in Elmira but I could make a trip in my truck to Syracuse with a bunch if I could get some help with gas. I told the guy we wanted to pick them out. He said he would pressurize them to make sure they held air!

That's nuts. Does he want to hord them or sell them? Maybe cut the fence? With that many I'd be thinking 15 bucks.

Rust - the salmon was very good. It has some "salmon nuances" to it but it was way more neutral in flavor (compared to your everyday saltwater salmon). I would say it is more along the lines of tasting like trout, with a tinge of salmon. But very neutral in flavor. Great firm flesh and will take on whatever seasoning you like.

I did my 4 Seas seasoning (Cumin, Coriander, Curry, Cayenne) -get the play on words Four Seas; 4 "C's"- and salt and a touch of pepper of course
