Why am I having a hard time finding them? I live in a college town. Should I really expect to pay $50 for them?

Where are you seeing them for $50 because that's a damn good price... especially if you're attempting to buy it legally (i.e. doesn't belong to the brewery anymore)

Gotcha. Yeah, I'm pretty sure the stainless steel the keg is made out of is worth about $50

a 1/2bbl keg is worth about $20-30 in scrap metal. they cost about $150-200 new if you are buying them several dozen or several hundred at a time (or $250-350 if buying one at a time). a non-private seller offering used kegs for $100-150 is a good deal.

if you look hard enough you can find private sellers on ebay/craigslist who dont know what the fair value of a keg is and offer it for less. but more than likely these people simply kept their kegs and forfeited the deposit.

the $50 deposit that the liquer store charges you in no way covers the replacement cost of a keg, and paying that $50 charge does not mean you own the keg. more than likely, if you find a keg on craigslist for $50, its stolen property. its hard to prove if it is or is not stolen though.

Typical price out here is $50...
We can get them from Lagunitas Brewing for $40 and they're legally decommissioned with documentation.

I bought mine for 30 and see them on CL for 45-70 bucks. Have you tried posting a WTB advert on CL?

It is 30-40 for me too but there are plenty of micro breweries around this area.


The keg I'm using to boil in I got for free
