Your local distributor might might be able to help. I'd guess they get back some damaged kegs. I'd suggest one of the big brewers in St. Paul but I think they've all gone to Milwaukee.

Try your local scrap yard. Also, use the Google for Sabco for legal used 1/2 barrel kegs.

If you don't have any luck with the keg, you might consider taking a sawzall to an old water heater. Use the bottom portion and you already have a tap and drain in it.

There are a lot of possibilities. An old propane tank, water expansion tank, compressor tank.

I looked on Ebay and to purchase a used keg with shipping there would run about $60.

water expansion tank, that is another possibility too......I checked ebay, did you see the 102 barrel wooden storage tank from Point Brewery in Stevens point? Man, if I had a basement that would hold that thing.

I think this is simple - go to liquor store buy keg - pay $12 deposit - keep keg

Jerkin'm I am located in Prior Lake, where abouts are you?

Sorry guys, but maybe we can have a beer bust another time. WE have deer camp (in Iowa)in less than two weeks and I would like to have this project done sooner than later. Don't get me wrong, I would love to have a project that involved getting a couple of kegs drank, but the bride would have serious problems if I started to let complete stangers back into the garage and help me drain a couple kegs, again smirk.gifsmirk.gifsmirk.gif

We use an old milk can. Drill a hole toward the bottom and put an on/off valve on it. Can draw water out as needed and a lot more heavy duty than keg.

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.
    • kelly-p
      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.
    • Horseshoe_Don
      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth. 
    • pikeandchester
      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!
    • leech~~
      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
