I recently have started the planning process of building my own UDS, however as I have learned its not been an easy process of obtaining a good used 55 gallon steel drum. I got ideas from this forum and others on where to call and so far I have called multiple places like a bakery, tractor supply, a coke bottling plant (have not returned call yet), home brew store, and several large breweries around me. Most either don't sell them as they are a deposit drum or simply don't have them to sell. I have also checked craigslist but no luck. Does anyone know anywhere where I could buy a used drum fairly cheap maybe $20-40. I am preferably looking for an unlined drum that held something other than oil or the like. However I will most likely take anything at this point. Any help is greatly appreciated!
