Once upon a time I bought like 8 of the pub kegs from Sabco industries. It is a 5 gal premix (Corney) with the ballock areas pluged and welded and the lid welded on and fitted with a Sankey ball tap.

I like them and was going to recommend them to someone else but doing an internet search can't find that product anymore. Anyone know the status on those guys? It has been probably 2 years or more since I have done bussiness with them.

I think they're completely out of the homebrew market.

Looks like the site I remember but no keg sales. Oh well, for the price those pub kegs were nice. I supose if I run accross anything similar I could revive this thread if anyone is interested.

Their price went up.
I remember when it was $99 for those.
Ohh well, supply and demand will get you every time.

I'm talking about a keg for kegging not boiling. They used to have something called the "pub keg" it was a Corney keg (5 gal soda keg, the premix style) that they plugged and welded the ballok valve areas. Then they weld a lid on it that was a Sankey valve. It is a soda keg modified to accept a standard U.S. ball tap. I think they came in at around 60 some bucks after shipping.
