Default For Sale - Cornies on eBay -- not mine

Just wanted to put out notice of this. Prices are stunningly good ($16 each) and shipping is very reasonable (I paid $30 for for shipping 3).

Here's the link.

I've purchased from that vendor before. Some of the kegs were dented at the bottom and they were not pressure positive when I received them, but I was replacing the o-rings anyways, so it didn't matter.

Shipping is VERY reasonable but it sort of tops out at 5 (36 bucks shipping for 5 for me, if I change it to six it jumps to 57) Great seller!

What do you mean they werent pressure positive? Just that they wouldnt hold any pressure? I was planning to replace all of the o rings, but was just curious what else i need to look out for

They weren't holding pressure when they arrived. Generally kegs are shipped with at least a few psi of pressure inside to show that they hold pressure when the seller shipped them, that way you cant complain about them sending you a defective keg, or one that won't hold pressure. You can tell this because they should hiss when you pull the ring.

I then tried getting them to hold pressure and only one wouldn't hold with its current o-ring, swapped it out and it was all set.

Thanks, I figured thats what you meant. When i got my kegging setup a few months ago, the did come pressure sealed. But if i get from anywhere that isnt sealed or doesnt have all new rings, ill test before i out the beer in there
