I've been looking FOREVER for someone selling an old keg. I've looked on craigslist, freecycle, and every other forum i'm on, I have had ZERO luck in finding ANY for sale !

where have you guys gotten yours ???

Just got mine (prebuilt - yes, I know...) from this guy. Not the cheapest, but good quality work. I'm very pleased - it performed well on it's first time out today...

Post a "wanted" ad on craig's list. I did and had 2 responses within a day. Neither have worked out yet, but once the ground thaws I'm in business. :)

over time, i have picked up 5 1/2 barrel, and 1 1/6th barrel kegs from craigslist. I also know of one recycle yard hear in the Seattle area that will sell me anything that they happen to have in stock at the time...

I think you just have bad timing, I've purchased 6 in the Boston area. They do pop-up on Craigslist, but I haven't seen them in awhile there.

Depends on if you want a one that is obtained legally or not. Most of the ones you'll get on CL are not properly obtained. I'm pretty sure mine is not legal but if I had to do it again I'd probably go talk to a brewery and get a damaged one from them.

+1 on your bad timing. Craigslist has supplied all I need and extras. 3- 1/2's, 2- 1/6's and a couple that appear to be 1/4's. Just check daily, and check the listings of the closest college city near you. Students always seem to be selling them(although they are probably someone else's).

I saw a few at the pawn shop in my area when I went to pick up a turkey burner. Got the burner for $20. They were selling the kegs for $35.

I missed out on them. I waited to long and they have already been sold. Oh well, I am still only on my fifth extract/steeping grains anyway. Still need practice! I will keep an eye for more kegs in my area.

Thanks,
