Default Recommendations on kegging kits

I have been bottling for a while now and I think it's time to upgrade.

I am looking for a Complete kit for a refrigerator upgrade (cornies, regs,tubing and taps. I have researched a few diffrent sites and prices. I wanted to know the Good,Bad,and the Ugly from some of the members here that have purchased and/or use any of these kits.

I just started kegging and got my setup from KegConnection. I didn't really comparison shop so I don't know how their prices compare but they are great folks to deal with. Orders were processed quickly and completely. The quality of the items shipped seems very good. The one small problem I had was dealt with promptly and without question. They are also very happy to chat and answer questions. Hope this helps.

CHI Company ball lock kegs for sale, Home brewing and vending, beer kegs, Pepsi vending machines, flavor strips and vending labels for the kegs,

Kegerators, Wine Refrigerators, Water Coolers, Beer Taps, Compact Refrigerators | BeverageFactory.com and MicroMatic.com - Draft Keg Beer Equipment, Kegerator, Taps for the rest of the stuff

ended up being cheaper than if i got a kit because i wanted 4 kegs and a larger 15# co2 tank. Beveragefactory was great with fast shipping and micromatic also. Everything was flawless

I'm at the same junction as Wickedale... Only place I looked was midwest who had a setup with a corny and co2 tank (with attachments) for about $150. I believe one of the componenets was refurbed. Any pitfalls with buying the used equipment? I assume I'll need to replace gaskets?

I'll check kegconnection... Thanks!

Midwest was good to me

I bought this a few weeks ago plus 2 large refrigerator conversions, shank and a faucet. One of the faucets is defective (missing a rubber sealing ring and some of the teeth are shot) so they are sending me another one free of charge w/ a slip to return the first one.

Everytime i call I get quick answers and its a really good price!

I ordered mine from KegKits.com and it took close to a month to receive the order. If you're not in any hurry to get your items, give Tom a call. He's cheap. But, buyer beware.

Midwest, KegWorks, Northern Brewer and Austin Homebrew Supply have had good reports on the forum.
