Magnets don't stick to Braumeisters but they do stick to so called SS urns and some Aussie kegs.


As far as the Stainless Perlicks, you've been ripped. Magnets should not stick to good grade stainless.

I've got stainless (525) and chrome plated (545) Perlicks. Magnets stick to neither of them.

I believe cold rolling 304 stainless results in it becoming magnetic, which would be how the urns and kegs are manufactured, so doesn't necessarily mean a cheaper grade of stainless.

304 is a cheaper stainless

Generally when I think of cheap stainless i'm thinking of the 400 crap as used in cheap kitchen items. But if we're using 316 as the benchmark then yeah ok.

Good point. The stainless ones came in boxes which had them declared at stainless, not that that proves anything.
The chrome plated ones look a bit shinier than the stainless, like a cheaper fake shine, more what I associate with chrome plated and the same as my chrome plated tap handles look. Not that I would know anything.

I take your point, clearly SS was the what i wanted when i bought them, tried the same magnets on my keggle and they didn't stick.
