If you buy used kegs from any other source than distributors or breweries, they may be ill gotten ... don't sweat it.

I picked up mine off CL for$50 a piece. The guy had bought them off CL planning to convert to keggles, himself.

Until retired kegs are permanently marked, you'll never really know what you are buying.

Get them and clean them up. Enjoy your brew day...

So I went over to the guys house to buy one or two of these kegs for our group. Turns out all of the kegs (except one) were full of dry concrete mix and weighed well over 150 lbs. I bought the one empty one for $25and will try to convert it.

Wow; talk about leaving out a detail. There are always kegs on Craigslist; just keep an eye out for a good deal.
