Guess it depends on shipping costs. $20 is a good deal unless the shipping is really high

The shipping crushes you. Idk if its still going on, but kegconnection has free shipping on order over 100bucks. They have B grade cornies for 25 and regular used for 30, so you could get 5 nice ones for 150 shipped.

My LHBS sells them for $35 ea. so $40 shipped to Canada seems OK. But you might do better finding them locally.

Edit: OK looked up Sudbury on a map so a smallish community, your probably not finding them locally. Cindy's Homebrew shop any good?

I've seen them range from $17 - $45.

However quality of the keg, whether it has been reconditoned or not, and whether there is a guarentee to hold pressure or not, can affect the price.

I reccomend pedalbiker. He sells them here on the site. Here is the thread. His kegs are in great shape, and he is a great person to deal with.

You can see by the thread that he has plenty of satisfied customers, including myself.

I live in Los Angeles and with shipping it came out to just over $100

$100 shipping?

I have (8)... the last 4 I bought were from INSCO2 on HBT here... 4 nice kegs, PLUS shipping was $100. Id say $200 is not a great deal, you can find much better.

If they are shipping NOT shipping from canada I'd say forget it the duty,taxes and brokerage fees will kill you.
