I feel sorry for the people buying kegs now, I bought 20 of them for $10 each years ago and now they are up to $70 each...

I agree - and although some re-sellers are looking for $70 each, one can still find some out there in the $45-50 range (craigslist mostly) if you're patient and look frequently. You got a steal on them at $10 - I've got ~30 of them and I would say my average cost is $32-34.

Yep, I agree, I consider them my retirement. I still find some in back rooms of old restaurants every now and then and buy them up or they just I've them to me. I bet I have close to 15

I bought around 30 of them from the local pepsi distributor when they switched over years ago for $10 each. If I had any idea how much they'd be worth I would have bought so much more. They had a warehouse full of them. :shock:

Did you take pics when you finished this up? Also, what size keg were you using?
