I got the keg in the mail a few days ago. It came pressurized so I know the seals are all good, but I ordered new seals anyway. I already have my CO2, regulator, and the gas line and fittings. It's in pretty good condition. Doesn't look like any dents in the steel, the black platic (or rubber?) top and bottom are in rough shape but overall not too bad. Worth it for $50!
I have a beer that's done fermenting that's just waiting to get put in the keg. I'll probably put it in today or tomorrow.
The only thing I need is some equipment for the liquid side. I should probably get a picnic tap, but I would also really like the ability to bottle from the keg. I know I pay another $75 for a Blichmann beer gun, and spend more on the fittings, hoses and other accessories, but is there a cheaper way?
Does anyone else use a different method to bottle from a keg?
