So I recently stumbled across some 3 gallon ball lock kegs for CHEAP. I knew it might be a long shot but figured the risk was worth it.
These kegs have been used to administer herbicides in agricultural fields. I am planning to recondition all of the gaskets but I am uncertain if star-San will be adequate to sterilize and remove herbicide residuals. Can anyone help me with this one????
Haha, knew this one would sound super iffy. I mean let's think... Dangerous poison- beer vessel? Hmmmmm hahaha.
But when I think about it it must be possible to clean stainless steel completely with some sort of acid wash. Just couldn't pass up the price.
Already have four 5 gallon cornys but was thinking this could be good for some stovetop brews and crazy experimental batches I don't want 5-10 gallons of. Anyway yeah, going to start going through intensive scrub and soak cycles with different cleaners. Maybe I can get them tested for dangerous residue somewhere afterwords (I am right next to the University of Georgia).
