Default Shipping a full 5 gal corney

Hey all.

Has any one had any experiences shipping a full 5 gallon corney? It's my grandfathers 80 and I wanted to bring my brew to celebrate.

I am open to suggestions.

my guess is that you are flying and are looking for a way to get your beer to a different location.. buy a Coors mini-keg and top it off, it will be cheaper.

If you are flying, bottle some and cram them into a checked bag. Make you wrap them well cause those baggage guys will break them for you.

Sounds crazy, but why don't you call a brewery and ask them? They do it all the time for festivals.

Buy your grandfather a plane ticket to come see you.

That was going to be my next course of action.

I wonder do you think you could check a 5 gallon corney?
