Wow! I wish I could come into that kind of deal! I want to start doing all grain and kegging in the next 6 months but the price is a little daunting, especially since I'm cheap.

I finally got first dibs on an old refrigerator from CL. (25 bucks) It's frustrating when you respond to an add and get no response, yet the item is still listed two days later.

I've been trying for about 3 months and lost out every time until now.
