Default Where do you buy kegs bigger then 5gal?

I was wondering about the bigger kegs then 5gal.
Where to buy key and the hardware for it.

I see regular beer kegs but I think I'm need some special hardware for them and stuff.

There are 10 gallon cornies out there, but they're pricy. For a regular keg you do need more equipment, but it seems you already know that.

You would need a tap, plus adapters so you can connect them to your cornie connectors. Regular kegs aren't cheap either and they can be a pain to clean. Why not just buy more cornies?

Bigger kegs are great, and don't cost a lot more than most ask for their Cornies. Look on Craigslist or just drive around your town on trash days. I was surprised how many I have seen by the side of the street after parties. Their are lots of good threads about cleaning Sanke kegs (the big ones). They only require one tap, and your kegreator will be able to handle commercial kegs if/when you need it to. They are easy to get open when you get the hang of it after a couple of trials.

As far as legally buying one you know isn't brewery property... well that is another story.

Used to be $17.00 so prices are going up.
