I got the same kit.... except all SS. Love the kit. Great service, real stand up guys.

EDIT: Also, I upgraded to the dual body taprite.... best decision I made.

It really depends on what you want to do... I eventually ordered a three way manifold for one of my lines (I can fit 4 cornys in my keezer). The only other thing, I guess, is think about what you eventually want to accomplish. If you can afford it now, get it now. No matter what, I STRONGLY suggest going with the Perlick faucets. Granted I don't have any personal experience with any others, but I do know people who didn't get the Perlicks, and they regret it... Apparently, the non-perlicks have a tendency to stick/freeze up unless you use them every day,

I just got a tower kit from kegconnection. It pretty much has everything you need and it comes assembled.

The only thing I needed to end up buying was some sockets from Lowe's to remove the posts from the kegs. You'll probably need some additional tools to drill the fridge.

I also went with the Perlicks and the dual body taprite. If I look back on it, I probably should've just saved some $ and got the single body since I'm only using 2 kegs with 12psi for the "set it and forget it" technique.

I do not know this specific kit. But you should get longer lines now. 5ft is just not enough.

Edit: oups I know this kit: I got the same, but with 4 taps. Here is what I would have changed if I knew what I was doing :

* ask them to have 10ft of tubing per line instead of 5.
* if you are doing a keezer, consider having shorter shanks. Mine are definitely too long and makes the keezer more busy than needed.

Things I changed and am very pleased with:
* the dual body taprite regulator is great. I use one body for the kegs, and the other one at 30psi to seal kegs and make sparkling water.
* upgrade with perlicks faucet: after reading a lot of post here on HBT, everyone was saying to just upgrade now instead of paying more money to do it later. I do not regret it as they work great.

Once I put my beer in the keg do I have to let it condition or is it ready to be carbed and served?
