OK, I've been looking for pointers all over the forum, but my brain is getting fried now. (This is a huge place!)

Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can buy a couple of old kegs that I can convert? I'm in Ohio, south west of Cleveland. I apologise if this is a much repeated request, I've been over-researching all over the interweb, and seem to have arrived back where I started

Craigslist is good. It's hit or miss, mostly a miss. But sometimes you get really REALLY good deals on them there. That's where I've gotten my kegs.

Craigslist is a decent place to look. I got 3 yesterday for $20 bucks just driving home though.

I ran into the same problem. None of the salvage yards here in the Detroit area seem to want to fess up to taking them (legally or illegally) for some reason and my intermittent Craigslist searches have proven fruitless. I'm still looking and I've got a standing offer from a friend of mine to get me three if I brew two batches just for him. I can guarantee those kegs won't be legit though.

Kyle, Hopman's has them now, there is even a guy in the SNOB's brew club that can cut and weld them for you.

Check with your local beer distributors, see if they have any that are being taken out of service. Or you could just cruise around and look out back behind a few bars........not that I'd do it or anything
