Not that I can think of, short of a hole where there shouldn't be one.

Make sure it hold pressure, easiest way just press the ball in the spear with screwdriver, if you hear hissing then its fine if you dont then it may have a hole somewhere, anyway i feel 100 is a lot

100 is a lot. I keep creeping on clist and find them for 50 to 75. I recently purchased one that had a rubber coating on it. I thought it would make a great mash tun because it would hold heat better. I have yet to use it because even the skirt along the bottom of the keg is rubber. SO if I set this rubber covered keg on a burner it will melt the skirt and fall over. IF you do press the ball down to test it for pressure please either have a friend do it for you or cover it with a towel. It will most likely spray old nastey beer ALL over you. (words of experience)

Do you happen to have a YouTube video of that?

$100 for a 15.5 gallon uncut Sanke keg is really high IMO. I've got one dated 2011 sitting in my garage that I got for free. Now I just need to haul the thing down to my buddy's shop, depressurize, and take a whack at it with his plasma cutter.

must be talking about purchasing "illegal" kegs if your saying $100 is alot... i havent seen a legal keg to purchase keg around here for less than $100 and even the "not so legal" ones are $75 or higher around here WHEN they do come up very very hard to find. aside from going to a party store and slipping the clerk $10 and the $30 deposit for one i paid $250 (used sabco MLT) and $100 for my other 2 kegs (last to "legally" bought(chime in keg police))

I would check a local big liquor store. I called mine down the street and the manager said he would charge me $35 a piece all day long for as many as i want. And he said a lot of them are brand new. He told me to come down and pick out the ones I want.

Essentially you are paying the guy $5 to steal the kegs for you.
