    I see them fairly often on craigslist down here in Denver. They often need to be rinsed out, but are food grade. They vary a lot in price. The lowest I've seen is $15 a barrel, but often they go for $35.

    Uline.com Remember, you are dealing with food so you want barrels that are approved for food.

    You often see barrels listed as "used juice barrels". Winemaking stores often have them surplus.

    Chain of ownership/usage is key to used barrels. Just because it says its “food grade” does not mean that the last item in it was a food safe item. I would never pick up one off of Craigs without knowing its usage history. Food processing plants are a great place to start. I am able to get pallets of 8 for free in my area. Give them to other members of my Reef Aquarium club
