Default kegging on the cheap

bought a dual guage regulator attached to a 5lb co2 tank for $35 off craigslist - there is still some co2 in the tank as an added bonus

put a wanted add in craiglist for soda kegs and someone agreed to sell me two used ball lock kegs for $40 - still smelled like pepsi

spent $60 at my LHBS for fittings, seals, poppits and now i'm ready to go

not bad - a whole system with two kegs for $135

plus i successfully dispensed water tonight - no leaks or sprays - now if i can only find an old fridge somewhere

Craigslist is your friend for cheap fridges too. I just picked a beer fridge up this weekend for $20, it was very dirty (advertised as cream colored), but some simple green cleaned it up (actually stunningly white). Once I get kegging stuff I'll be on the hunt for a chest freezer for a draught tower installation.
