It's so beat, that I'm pretty sure it met it's retirement, and a micro the size of Lagunitas wouldn't be using cornys for beer. I'm curious what it's past life was.... I like the idea someone had on page 1, apparently micros use them for yeast storage between batches..
As for the keggle and the Trumer 1/4bbl... they were in non-returnable condition when I purchased them as "stainless scrap"

All of my cornies are "property of wispak" but they sure as heck ain't getting 'em back. Unless you buy them shiny and new, chances are someone else owns them.

cornies are easy enough to come by legally, in VT the state takes ALL of the info when you get a keg so you cant just pay deposit and not return one, they can and do come looking for you. furthermore, no one is willing to sell a beat keg, all of the breweries all have someone they know who gets dibs, and any that do come up get snatched up by sugar makers...they are a hot commodity around here.

Question for all of you that find these great bargains. What terms do you usually search for when looking for home brewing stuff? Home brew? Beer? The name of individual stuff? Keg? Stock Pot? etc...

Direct search for the item has been productive for me. Also put a WTB ad out there yourself, for the item you are looking for.
