$100?? Ouch...

I thought I was done bottling but I only have 2 kegs but I have 6 batches going right now and my neighbor just gave me 8 cases of Pabst bottles...

for 90 you can get a new keg at some online stores, i believe. do NOT pay 100 for a used one. that is rediculous.

i am only willing to pay around 20 per keg, and i rebuild them myself, and i also polish the exterior to make them look better.

Make sure pooch doesn't take a whiz INSIDE of the kegs. Doesn't matter what happens on the outside, as long as they're pressured up.

At $100 a pop I would too, and I'd sell some to support my brewing habit

What would it cost to ship like 4 of them from the States? Maybe we could take up a "help Dibby Keg" fund.

Just sayin'...

Shipping costs in US$ of four 5-gallon kegs from Minnesota (just as a reference) to Hobart, Tasmania:

FedEx International Economy: ~$510 (cheapest FedEx)
UPS Worldwide Expedited: ~$485 (cheapest UPS)
USPS Priority Mail International: ~$190
FedEx Freight: ~$1145! - Must need a first class seat on the plane

So for about $100US for the kegs plus nearly another $200US in shipping costs you can have four on your sitting on your doorstep. Roughly $75.00 for a keg, a little better but may or may not be worth it. I couldn't find the maximum package sizes for USPS international shipments so it may exceed their limits but I doubt it.


On a side note - I am actually going to be visiting Hobart in a week for a couple days, whats the weather been like in your part of the country?
