I went to the Hershey AACA swap meet and car show last week not expecting to find brewing equipment but I found this and took a chance on it since it was an older eye wash station wasn't sure if the poppets would fit

when I got home I took some poppets off a bad 5 gallon keg, some new o-rings and presto a functioning 10 gallon corny

The local U-Brew uses those, i asked once how much he payed for them, i think he said somewhere around 300-400 dollars each.

25" tall and a circumference of 12 1/4"



don't hate me ,$20

Nice find... I think you might have meant 12 1/4" diameter not circumference. If the interior is 25" then you are looking closer to 12.75 gallon. If OAL counting handles is 25" then it probably is closer to 10 gallon. Nit picky I know but.....

Nice find. I've got three, perfect for 10 gallon batches. Try CHI Company.net they sell 10and 15 gallon kegs.

I saw your post the other day, and then a few days later my neighbor was cleaning out his garage and had one. I offered to buy it but he was not interested in selling it then. Later that day he brought it over and gave it to me. He decided he had no use for it. Now to convert it from eye wash to cornie.
