Default Nitrogen System - Best price for a new system??

I'm not having much luck finding a nitrogen setup for any less than 290 bones from the keg connection. If I have to bit the bullet I will, but was wondering if anyone had the hookup on a full system at a better price?

Just a tip, check locally to make sure you have a source for beergas before dropping the coin for a system. It's not available everywhere.

I just did one part by part and ended up spending around 400. All I need to do is brew an oatmeal stout and she's good to go.

Airgas is local to us and I hear they supply the beergas.

Do you have an extra CO2 cylinder? Airgas took mine plus 5 bucks in trade for a nitrogen cylinder. It was about 15 bucks to have it filled with beer gas so I was out about 20 bucks plus whatever I paid for the CO2 cylinder originally.

There you go. That'll save you a bit. All you need now is a CGA580 regulator, a stout faucet, and some beer line and fittings. CHI had a bro deal on a stout fauct recently but I ended up getting one from BMW as I threw it in on another order.

You can call up the guys at keg connection and have them remove the nitrogen cylinder from the kit. I just did this last month. Don't quote me on this but I think it was $240 without the cylinder.
