My Name is Derek, I am currently an extract / partial mash brewer and am looking to set up my all-grain setup. I have it all planned out and I thought I would get the hardest part out of the way first.
I am looking for used / decommissioned / damaged / whathaveyou 1/2 bbl (15.5 gal) kegs (3 to be exact) to convert into my HLT, MLT, and brew kettle. I have called homebrew stores, which led me to liquor stores, which led me to the distributors, which led me to the breweries themselves, and to no avail. I'm looking for any and all information on the subject of procuring kegs (legitimately) and any help is greatly appreciated! Is this a worthwhile search?
Thank you all in advance for your time.
Anything in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area is greatly encouraged!
