I purchased two used kegs from beveragelements.com . Received them a few days ago. Disassembled them to clean prior to use and one of the posts was very hard to remove. I got it off and cleaned everything in PBW. The kegs were filty with soda syrup and grime inside and out.
When I tried to put the one back together I realized someone had cross-threaded the post onto the keg so now the threads on the actual keg are damaged.
When I contacted beverage elements their response was that disassembling the keg had invalidated my warranty!
Not pleased at all.
After multiple emails back and forth and me sending pictures to them of the damaged threads on the keg beverage elements relented and agreed to send me a new keg on Monday. I just hate that I had to be a jerk to make it happen...
