Price for kegging setup
What would be a reasonable estimate to purchase everything I would need to switch from bottling to kegging? I do 5 gallon batches, so either a 5 gallon keg or two or several 3 gallon kegs would work.

My local guy quoted me $225 for an entire setup except for CO2. This included a 5 gallon corny keg.

More beer has kits for this which DO include co2.

Free fridge
Craigslist and garage sales if your patient

Check out the Kegconnection.com kits. You can add whatever part you want and shipping is a flat $7.95. The basic one-faucet fridge kit, a CO2 tank, and pin-lock keg will get to you for $202.85 shipped. You might be able to find parts cheaper elsewhere, but Kegconnection has great service and will ship to you fully assembled.

I just got a kit with an upgraded Taprite dual regulator (but no faucets, just picnic taps) for $267 shipped.

Check Craigslist for fridges, can usually find an old one for less than $100 (sometimes free if you're lucky/can fix a broken one).

Kegconnection.com looks pretty good, there are also some deals on amazon. This looks fairly decent:


You'll definitely need to spend at least $150 to get started, and that will probably only include one keg.

I bought a two faucet (door mount) kit with 5lb CO2, two pin lock corneys and everything but the fridge from KegConnection for $260. Another $60 for a craigslist side-by-side and I was in business. Been using it for a year and a half - no complaints!
