I have been wanting to start kegging for a couple weeks now, and held off due to the $$$. I live across the street from a Pepsi distributor, and as we speak, one of the drivers left the cargo doors wide open and 4 corny kegs are sitting right there. Its 9:33 here and in the middle of a bad smowstarm, I could easily get away with it. I could shave my kegging costs by over $100. Dang my ethics. Would you do it???

Interesting question. Let's explore. You get away with it, you get about $100 in kegs. You get caught you're arrested and get a criminal record. Would you pay $100 to erase a permanent criminal record? $1000?

Plus...I share a house with my brother, a cop....added wrinkle! And no, I would rather buy the kegs than face a criminal record and a fine. I am bored, wanted to see if anyone would say yes. The question actually sparked a good idea though. I have friends down the street at the Coke distributor. I didn't think these kegs were still used, thought the syrup packs were the new thing. If Pepsi still has the kegs, Coke might. I'll ask to see if they have any they need to get rid of!

Its just funny that 45 min ago I was at work doing a budget on scrap paper, cuz I don't do much work at work. I was trying to work some cash in to buy kegs. Pulling into my driveway there they are, straight across the street, parked on the side of the road. Irony bit*h slapping me in the face.

Hey, if your neighbor is a distributor he can probably get them for you for cheap or even free. My distributor at work told me that when I'm ready he can have me a few in a couple days and to just let him know.

I'd talk to the guy drivin the truck about how you could go about scoring some of those kegs.

Or go rig the doors so they wonlt close right and maybe a few will fall out when he drives away. lol
