I bought a dual tank setup from him (along w/ extract, hops and yeast.)

Good presale communication - usually takes one day to respond. Keg kits actually ship from here: http://www.markpowers-and-company.com/ Shipped right away. Corny kegs were in good shape, clean but missing one o-ring. They actually shipped a CO2 tank by accident (didn't order it, nor did they bill) - am still waiting for o-ring replacement and shipping instructions for tank return... (got replacement o-rings elsewhere!) I rent a 20# tank from my local AirGas (welding supply.)

Regulator setup is of good quality. Sec regulator is a 0-100psi - a little high - I'm in process of swapping gauge.

Product works great - good quality hoses, basic picnic taps work for me. I would recommend him.

Not doubting its a good company--but I'll throw another one out there so you can do some price comparison. I considered Hargrave as well but I found that Beverage Factory was comparable (or even better prices) on everything. I got my tower(s) and entire set-up minus the C02 tank/regulator from them.

orrelse - you have an extra http in your link.

Moderator - can you get rid of the http:// in the linker? When I cut and paste, the URL always has a http:// in it. Having to remove the extra one or be very careful to not include it in the cut is a pain.

The extra http:// is always highlighted when the box pops up...if you just "paste" as soon as the box pops up, then the extra stuff is replaced by whatever's in your clipboard.

Thanks. I fixed it.

Don't know if TxBrew can get rid of that http thing or not. I'll check.
