I live in North County San Diego (close to Stone, AleSmith, Mission Brewery, Port Brewery, Lost Abbey, Karl Strauss, and many more). There are about 5 LHBS's within a 30 min drive. I've emailed every one. Most of them just say "try ebay."
There is one (ONE!) LHBS that sells reconditioned corny kegs for $60 a pop. Most of the ebay sellers are selling them for at least that much, which doesn't include the shipping ($20-$30 on such a large item). Craigs List searches as far north as LA have turned up nothing.
So my question is... where are you people finding these $20-$30 corny kegs!? I keep reading on these forums that corny kegs can be found for pretty cheap and that $60 is pretty overpriced. Am I just looking in the wrong places?
