Looking to obtain a legal keg for an MLT. We already have our boil kettle setup from another keg. Trying to find a brewery that some of you Boston-area natives might know of that sells kegs legally.

Any help would be great...

Best way to find out if any breweries are selling kegs, is to give em a call! Kilted Brewer called up Widmer Brewing and just asked them if they had any retired kegs for sale. Next thing you know, he'd got two of em for cheap! The worst that they'll say is no.

The reason I ask is because I have called a few local breweries without any luck...

Which ones have you called? There's enough locals around here to call them all. I know I'm not working too hard and can call a few.

It would be great if we had a list of the breweries in our area and the ones that have kegs available and the regularity of their availability. I'd be happy to compile it if others want to help...

The yankee brew news has a list of all the breweries in the state with phone numbers. I don't think you'll have too much luck but it can't hurt to try. I bet the big guys in Merrimack NH would have the most.
