Hey guys,

A buddy at work just offered me two free sanke kegs as long as I give him free beer that I brew. I am building a three keggle system right now and have already converted three kegs into a htl mt and bk..... What can I do with two more kegs? Are they ideal for converting to fermenters? Or are there any other good ideas out there?

If I didn't live 18 hours away from you I would come take them off your hands! haha... I am in the process of gathering material for my brewery... single tier!

Well, you could convert to fermenters... or build a heck of a Keezer and use them in that to store your beer.

Use them as the manufacturer intended...as kegs for serving beer.

I've kicking the idea of a conical around. Anyone seen this done with a snake?

I have the same "problem". I have two extra as well and not sure what to do. I'm leaning towards converting them into fermenters but just not sure how fancy I want to get.

You guys are lucky! It took me months of painstaking searches just to find one! I just found it yesterday, as a matter of fact.

Craigslist is your friend... there are all kinds of Kegs listed on the DFW CL. One guy has 3 listed for 75 bucks! It is just too far for me to drive to go get them...
