100L keg Wanted In The US

Postby Pa_bon » Tue Jul 17, 2018 2:34 pm

I know they exist but am having trouble finding one to purchase in the US.

Anyone know of a supplier?

Thanks.

I thought the 100L kegs were only an English / UK thing .

In Australia, (WAY) back in the day, we used to have nine and eighteen imperial gallon kegs (about 41 and 82 litres) (nearly 11 and 22 US gallons) (so there you go, not 100 litres. Though in those days we hadn't heard of a litre so exactly 100 litres was VERY unlikely.)

The eighteen was for a REAL good party!
Not sure which the publicans used for the bar but I suspect it might have been the eighteen.

That may very well be SB.

The Coca Cola syrup tanks, like what McDonald's used to have in the back, are 80 gallons. They also have a ball lock lid like corney kegs have. They already have a 3/4" drain in the bottom too. I picked one up for $250.

Are you looking specifically for a keg or are you wanting a boiler?
I am thinking about upsizing to a 100L (26gallon) boiler, for larger runs, but this is still quite a while off.
I have found basically the same "26 gallon Milk can boiler" on several different commercial sites.
They are roughly $475 to $575 depending on who you look at.
I have even thought about going to a 200L Pot Belly Kettle instead of a 120L. But these are about $2000 to $2400. That would make this even FURTHER off.

It might be cheaper and take very little less time distilling to use the beer keg and a good-sized pre-heater and probably a thumper.
Insulation or a shield make a big difference too.

And may take a lot less space.

I use a keg and thumper now. Just looking to see what's available before I build from sheet metal. Really want a 40 gal double boiler but don't have time to build right now.

Thanks for input.

If you have a choice go wider then taller.
Easy and cheaper to heat.
