Wow, unless he's got a bunch more equipment to throw in, his claims are a bit lofty. If you're interested, make him a lowball offer of $25 and see how much he's willing to compromise.

I wonder how old the included ale kit is? All that stuff is under $100 brand new, total crap...

Someone should send him an email and ask him if he's trying to sell this stuff to support his crack addiction.

Northern Brewer has the same stuff for $105.00

He must be talking pesos.

Someone's just trying to turn a nice profit by finding some idiot who has no idea how much this stuff is worth or where to look for it. Hey, it's on Craigslist - it's got to be a great deal, right?

Or maybe he is the idiot and paid $300 for that stuff and is thinking he is giving someone a good deal @ $150.
