Default Corny Kegs $35.00

My LHBS has ball lock Corney kegs, not reconditioned for 35.00 a piece. I am thinking this is not that great of a deal. Is this a deal?

While it isn't a terrible price (I have seen some for much more) I don't think it is a deal at all. Lately I have had kegs delivered for $25 each. I would say anything under that would be a deal. Several years ago I bought about a dozen kegs for $5 each. Now that was a deal.

If you can only afford 1 and need it right away, it makes sense, otherwise you'll pay out the butt for shipping. If you can do a bulk buy, check out CHI Company ball lock kegs for sale, Home brewing and vending, beer kegs, Pepsi vending machines, flavor strips and vending labels .

I'm about to cry as I saw that the single handled ones were on sale, but sold out. Hope someone got lucky.

$25 each after shipping? In bulk, or just one?

The least I've seen anywhere for single, non-reconditioned kegs was about $20 before shipping, which added up to close to $35 after shipping. I understand bulk can save you some money but then you're spending a wad of cash all at once, too.

My LHBS has refurbished and sanitized, ready to use kegs for $35...a pretty good deal IMHO.

There is a guy on here, Insco2, that is selling them in packs of 4, for basically $100 shipped! His rebuild kits (seals) are only 2.50 as well... MUCH better than any LHBS I have seen. I just bought 4 more cornies from him myself!

From what I read these kegs are going away. They are not being used anymore by Pepsi. What did they replace them with in restaurants? Are the replacements available to us? Can they be used by us?

From what I have been told, they have been replaced by collapsible plastic containers... I dont think we want them! It is called (bag in a box). Get the cornies while you can!
