going to let go 2 1/2 BBL converted kegs-legally purchased at beer distributor about 10 years ago.  pulled the trigger on 2- 15 gallon megapot 1.2 pots with a 20% coupon. both have welded bottom draining 1/2" NPT pipes to attach a valve. picture is for reference. they served me well for many years. i was thinking $100 for the pair. too much, too little?

I had a couple set up for electric brewing and I sold them for about the same price a few years back.  Before opening this I was going to say $50 a keg so I think you are on the right track.

For someone who knows the worth, that's a pretty generous offer. 

 

For some clueless fool, they'll think it's too much or too little! haha.

True but for me I just wanted to get rid of them.  I also find in my area people will pay more for new and shinny from Spike,SS Brewtech, Stout or others before they go and get some used gear.  Seems they feel after brewing for a year they will go pro anyway ..LOL

Interesting. Usually the brewery owns the kegs, not a distributor

Very true. Coming from the warehouse manager I spoke to,he had a handful of decommissioned/damaged kegs; pin holes, didn't hold pressure, etc. Brewery didnt want them back; driver that took them back wouldn't accept them-insurance claim for the owner. I just cold called them and got lucky.

Thats the story i was told.

I was fondly remembering some epic old school arguments about decommissioned kegs
