Default Jack Daniels Keg?

I found (2) 15.5gal kegs on Craigslist yesterday for a really good deal. The dude said that they have been sitting in storage for at least 10 years and he has no use for them anymore. I went to look at them today in person and they were in such good shape I bought them both for keggle projects, ($25 each)

I noticed when I was taking the spear out that one of the kegs is a Jack Daniels keg. I was just curious, what did the Jack Daniels company used to keg?

Well if you haven't done anything with it yet DON'T !
Get in contact with the Jack Daniels Collectors Society... you might be able to make (more than) your $ back on selling it ot a crazy collector. My Uncle is in the society. There's probably someone out there that would want it.

All I have done is taken the keg spear out, I haven't cut into it yet or anything. Here's some pictures.

I doubt it's worth anything, but I was just wondering what they used to keg.

I'm planning on polishing both of them, adding ball valves, sight glasses and temp probes. I've just never seen a JD keg before.

A burger joint in Chicago (Kuma's Korner) has Jack Daniels on tap. They use a ton of it when they cook. That would be my guess.

Hold off on the JD keg... those collectors are crazy. I'll send my Uncle the pictures and see if anyone is interested.

I wonder if they used them to transfer yeast.

I remember in my younger days( ok so like 10 years ago) when we learned you could get JD in a keg. We seriously talked about doing it for a party, then realized we would need to have the rescue squad on call for all the alcohol poisoning that was going to be going on that night if we did that. Probably the only time we actually used our heads back then.

I can take better pictures. The ones I took were on my phone and don't really do the keg justice. It's in really good shape.
