Here is a thread posted by someone else. On the link has the guys contact, that's where the group buy got them....They're located in moncton. And price was nowhere near 65 each....LOL. What shop had them for 65? so i know not to go there....lol.

I think the coke are pinlocks aren't they? compared to the pepsi being ball lock. I'm sure the coke warehouse would at least sell them for the cost of the $25 deposit....not sure though..but might be worth checking out in grabbing a pallet if others were interested in some.

Oh yes, he's got lots...

Noble's actually decent...so i won't knock them.. Scoop and Save don't have anything for kegging....they have lots of beer and wine supplies though...just keep an eye on the dates as some stuff might be expired.. I shop around though...Co-op is cheap too for some stuff if you're a member.....

What kind of brewing are you into? AG? kits? partial?

I know about 5 guys that would take 5 kegs each.. I fired him off an email.. hopefully he gets back to me ...

right now I'm doing kits, I've only made 3 batches so far. Slowly getting better but still not great. I'm building a fermintation chamber it's almost done I just have to put wheels on it. my next brew is going to be a wheat beer.. Might try doing 2 at a time since the Keg can hold to batches.

ANyone know how long Beer would last in a Keg like that?

I just went and picked it up and it's FULL.. freaking heavy too.

Also do Co2 expire? How can I tell if it's owned by Pepsi or Coke or someone else?

There's no name on the Tank but there is a $50 deposit sticker on it.

Beer, as long as it's been kegged sanitarily, will last a long time (read 2-3 years even!).

CO2 doesn't really expire in a air tight tank, should be fine.

Stickers are removable, and besides, you purchased it legally so you have ownership legally. If you're worried, just get rid of the sticker.

*EDIT* Please post a new thread if it's not directly about the original. Hope this helps answer your ?'s

doubt that keg was owned by pepsi or coke.....its the corny kegs they got. And the cornies got them deposit stickers on em too.....just remove em. I'm sure you'll be able to find a nicer sticker to put on there anyways....hehehehhe

I actually meant the CO2 tank not the gas itself.. My bad.. I think the tank is 10 years old.. It has a fill tag from '99.
