Sorry about the double post. We are slightly behind the times here in Vermont.Yeah, been there done that, there was a thread about it last week....
That's funny, I typed in plastic keg into a titles only search and the other thread popped right up.Sorry about the double post. We are slightly behind the times here in Vermont.
Funny thing is I searched twice ont this and came up with nothing, yet another example that the search function on this site sub par.
The 20l versions do seem to have many advantages over the cornys used by many brewers however the 10l looks to be about half the cost of a 3gal corny. The problem is how do you clean and fill a sanke keg? If you could extract the valve and spear it shouldn't be too difficult but it appears you need a special tool to do that. A little research found that the tool costs about $250 and is only available to registered breweries.i just called and they are 65 a piece for the 20l and 55 a piece for the 10 liter but i think you have to buy atleast 10 the more you buy the vheaper they get i do know that and also i had a really hard time understanding the guy he has a very thick accent
What A *****donkey!nope, spoke with the VP of something, and he said no-go on any corny sales. i tried to explain the market in regards to us homebrewers but he wasnt buying it.
It's not as though one would find ANY SS keg rotting in a landfill. If it's not useable as a keggle (after it's been decommissioned), it's certainly worth the value of the scrap which will be recycled.It kind of bugs me the way they pitch their kegs as being more environmentally friendly than SS on the basis that they can be recycled instead of reused.
Now I'm no environmentalist, but I think I have a pretty good reckoning of the difference in energy costs between those two options.
