Default Kegging / keggerator question

So I've decided I wanted to go in the direction of kegging my brew but seeing how I've never done this before I was curious about what all I needed I was going to buy the 2 tap keggerator which includes the following
What's Included:
Ships complete with all components needed to tap one keg or two sixth barrels: CO2 tank, regulator, coupler, beer lines, air lines, tap, tower, drip tray, faucets and faucet handles (keg not included)
What else will I need to accomplish my goal of kegging? I just don't want to double purchase items.

Sounds like you'll have everything except keg(s), spare keg o-rings, keg lube for the o-rings, maybe hose clamps depending on if they omitted those as an assumed included part.

Most off-the-shelf kegerators are designed for tapping Sanke kegs like you would get from the liquor store. Most homebrewers use Cornelius (soda) kegs for homebrew because they are easier to clean without specialized equipment. To use corny kegs you'll need ball- or pin-lock couplers depending on which type of keg you're going to use. To tap two corny kegs, you'll need two liquid couplers and two gas couplers. Then obviously you'll need the kegs as well.

I got (4) good condition pin-lock kegs from a guy on craigslist, and bought a CO2 kit from kegconnection.com
The hoses and everything comes already assembled, all I had to do was get my brand new CO2 tank filled for $8. They can't ship the tanks with gas in them.

Sounds like you have everything you need.

One thing that I got was an adapter that would allow you to go from pin\ball lock to sanke keg without having to take anything apart. http://www.austinhomebrew.com/produc...ducts_id=10049
