Question - why don't more opt to use rubber ended kegs? Kettle proof, don't bang up concrete, and quiet.

I'm glad there is an effort to get the word out.  I wish I had heard about it earlier.

I will add to the conversation that the whole appeal of keggles for me was that they were cheaper.  After the fact I found that not to be the case.  It is actually cheaper to buy a decent kettle already set up for brewing than to retrofit a keg.

The people I have done business with have the all Stainless Steel kegs in stock. I'm usually in a hurry to get them so I choose not to wait for the rubber ended kegs.

I am glad that this issue finally made the main page on the AHA site.
