A buddy of mine just bought a bar and I found 7 old, nasty coke kegs in the basement. He was going to send them to the scrap yard, so I took them home to clean. They all apear to be in decent shape, and cleaned up pretty well.

I have taken them all apart and have the lids, posts, and dip tubes soaking in oxyclean, then when I can reassemble them, I will use new O-rings, then fill with oxyclean to clean the insides.

SWMBO has come to terms with the expense of brewing and bottling 5 gallon batches, but is not thrilled at the idea of me spending money on kegging related equipment. She is also not excited that I have all of these kegs taking up space in our small house. My solution is to potentially trade 3 or 4 of these for different beer-related equipment.

What i would be interested in:
CO2 tank
regulators/manifolds
faucets/shanks
disconnects

I am in the Pittsburgh area and would prefer to not ship these things, but drop me a line if you're interested.

Thanks

It appears that you want to start kegging. If you're cool with pin locks I suggest you keep all 7. Once you start you'll only want more and they're free. You can pick up the rest of the parts for pretty cheap on CL if you watch.

Same here. But you are too far for pickup. If you decide to ship let me know

Thanks for all of the responses... I think I would prefer to trade for either a cooler/mash tun or an immersion chiller. If anyone is interested please let me know.

Thanks for the advice, but I really can't see myself being able to commit enough time/money to keeping 7 cornies in the rotation. I'd prefer to unload 2-3 of them so that I can upgrade other equipment.

Have a 10 gallon round cooler with stainless braid and ball valve would consider trading. Also have a copper manifold I might consider adding in. Would require shipping on both ends. Drop me a pm.
