Gooday all. I am just back into brewing and as many of you would have done, I have invested quite a few bucks in new equipment. In particular I have bought 2 23ltr stainless kegs. Problem! The actual body of my kegs are definitely stainless and I am unable to get a magnet to stick to them. However, at the weld sites top and bottom the magnet sticks like glue. Same with all the fittings and the lid and handles. Looking inside the kegs the weld line is rough and would harbour infectious material and rust can be seen running down the sides of the kegs. I don't want to cause a heap of pain for my local owned brew store, no names no pack drill. I called the owner and he said bring my keg in and he will get things sorted. Trouble now is that I have raised the issue with a number of brewing buddies and after checking their kegs out, they have all found the same deal. There are absolutely no identification marks on the kegs, just a couple of stickers. Has any one run into this problem before and if so was it resolved to your satisfaction? All replies gratefully received.
