Default OT What to do with empty beer kegs

I have an empty beer keg and can get more on occasion. I'm thinking they have to be useful for something, small grill, techno lamp base? Give me some ideas. No, I don't want to trade them on full kegs. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

They are generally made of stainless steel. I've heard of guys making smokers out of them, if you can get someone to cut them for you. Maybe a sawsall will cut them? Nice cause they don't rust.

Saw a pony keg used as a Nitrous tank on a hotrod truck once. Don't think I would suggest it however.

If all you did was pay the deposit, then turn the keg back in and get the deposit back. Kegs generally cost about 60 - 100 to replace (yes even for a big brewer) its kinda like taking towls from a hotel, yes people do it but all the business does is relay the replacement cost back into the charge for the next person.

BUT if you did aquire them legally, talk to some body that can weld stainless and turn it into a crab/brew/etc..etc.. pot like it was stated earlier they won't rust. Another option is if you can get a steady supply of them cheap, sell them to homebrewers (ie. E-bay,local) I know I keep a constant lookout for old half-kegs for my other addiction (homade beer).
This only applies to the new style straight sided half and full kegs, the only use I can think of for the old rounded bung hole kegs is cut it in half and make a BBQ pit out of it (they are easy to recognize, two taps in different spota and a wooden bung in the middle)

If I lived closer I would say I would buy a coupla off of ya, but the shipping on it would suck.

Any ways good luck.
here is a link on how to convert a keg to a kettle

How about filling it back up so you can drink it again! [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

1. Quit drinking.
2. Clear you head.
3. Ruminate.
4. The answer will come.

Big seafood boiling pot, as long as there's no coating on it or anything that would be bad to eat from once heated by flame.

Might make a nice air tank for the garage -- how much pressure could you put into one of those things?

Might make a nice floating-dock barrel to support a boat dock. Maybe a little small for that, though???

ummm.....

Probably make a neat base for a coffee table? Patio table? Maybe a few together could make a cool chair??

Lots of cool stuff you could do with those.

Good luck,
Pete

Well you could cut the in half and weld them in a 90 degree andgle and have some party chairs. Donate them to junkyard wars so they can make some more boat type contraptions out of them. Ho on top of a hill when there is a marathon and roll them down as the runners come up [img]images/icons/blush.gif[/img]
Cut them in half and make sleds out of them.
Get a big medicei ball and get more kegs and go supersize bowling. Endless fun with kegs. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
