    im dying to find an empty keg. anything that has gotten in it over time should die when you fire the keg up as a grill in its new life. couldnt you just run anti freeze in the water cooler, i dont think anything could grow in it.

      I know where a good many is at a salvage yard. He is getting premium price though. 40 bucks a peice. I bought one the other day just to have on hand in case somebody else needed another keg grill built. They are pricey to build though but some folks like paying for good stuff.

          In my area, beer distributors charge a deposit of approx $15 - $20 over the cost of a quarter keg of beer (I don't know the deposit on larger kegs); get a quarter, drink the contents & you're left with fine keg at half the price, and a fine buzz, too.

            I came across a beer keg floating in Puget Sound today, and my friend insisted on grabbing it to make it into a beer cooking pot. First of all, could this thing really be stainless (how can I tell)? It looks like stainless but seems like aluminum would be way cheaper (Annheiser Bush), and it is hard to tell what it is made out of. Second, anyone ever make a cooking kettle out of one of these? Third, is there a better use it could be put to (like a grill?).

            Thanks!

            i think you shouldnt fix the keg and drink it all yourself. so pull out a stic welder and lets party

                Paying the deposit is NOT the same as buying the keg. It is still seen as stealing if you do not return it.

                  Judging from the Sept. 2005 date of the original thread, you may not get too many replies. They probably haven't yet been paroled for the stolen keg convictions
