I don't have any kegging equpiment yet but I've found a fella selling a 15lbs CO2 tank 3 regulators, 3 couplers 3 Taps and a 59L Keg.

Can I use the large keg? or should I just put it aside and get some Cornies? how do you fill/clean them?

Thanks

How much? If the price is right, for the rest, it's worth it. It could be I'm not used to Liters (stupid American non metric grumble grumble)... but can't picture that keg. Thinking its 1/2 to full keg size, which could make a good brew kettle if nothing else. Let us know what happens!

I just spoke to the guy again tonight. Get this .. it full of beer!! haha.. guy must not be much of a drinker. He bought a building awhile back and this was in it, used to be a bar I guess. He also dropped the price to $130 CAN.

I'm getting it, 59 Liters would be about 15.5 Gallons

15# tank and three regulators! Plus three couplers and taps! $130!?!? Why is this not in your place of residence yet!? Go for it dude- pretty darn good price (assuming regulators are functional).

Post a pic of your score then :-)

I'm trying, the guy lives 2 hrs away. My uncle might be driving through on Friday if not I'm heading down Saturday. I couldn't sleep last night because I was trying to figure what I was going to do with it.

Thats a really good deal. You can re-use that keg if you want to go through all the trouble, but I'd suggest cutting the top of and using it as a BK/MT/HLT.

That is a really good deal! I just got a used half keg from my neighbor, makes a great brew kettle.

Seems like a great deal to me as well. BTW, whereabouts are you located TJ-Bill ? I assume somewhere in Can with the prices...

Nice. Great regulator setup, and good size tank. More then likely, if you have a propane burner or turkey deep fryer, that keg will make a great keggle (or HLT setup). Nice score ;-)
