I scored a 45L soda keg, with the intention of butchering it to make a larger mash tun. Seeing these things being flogged on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi...6119921262&rd=1
made it seem that to do such a thing would be sacrilige....

So what I am looking to do is to sell it off, and head off to a HBS with a fistful of fifties and buy a couple of 19L kegs to start my foray into kegging, or to swap it for a couple of 19L kegs.

There are some dents in the base, but the thing was under pressure when I got it, so there is no question that it will do the job required.

Send me a PM if you want to make an offer, or are keen for a swap.

Would make a very nice stainless fermenter. Rack your beer by pushing it out the liquid out post with CO2. I'd love one for bigger batches. Unfortunately I'm a long way away.

Couldn't tell you to be honest, as I said, I am new to this kegging caper. The fittings on the top, one bleed lever thingy, plus two other fittings which resemble garden type connectors, but with a ball visible inside the opening.
I will take a couple of photo's tonight and post them, so things can be correctly identified.

Is it pinlock or ball lock?
Heya,
It said pin-lock on the ebay link. Looks like pin-lock on the photo too

No interest yet from the masses?

Might have to flog it on ebay or in the trading post if nobody here is interested.

Hi dreamboat,

I think you will find that it is not dented in the bottom as that is how they all look.
I have got a couple of them and they are Myton Grovener (sp?) with ball lock fittings.
If I wasnt as far away I would buy it from you as I recon that they are excellent.
Good luck with the sale but if you dont sell it and you are asking a reasonable price then PM me and we will talk.

Cheers
