I got the 15gal keg basically for free, I got the 2x 5gal corny kegs with sanke adapters on the left for free, and I got the 5x 5gal ball lock cornies for $20 each... and should be picking up 2 more ball locks this weekend. I got several disconnects for the ball locks included. Just need to buy some more, and maybe replace a few of the gaskets (gonna pressure test once I get a regulator).
Picked up the homemade IC for $25 as well.
I got the 20lb (empty) CO2 tank for $50, and traded it for a full one for about $17.
All I need now is a regulator, some gas and liquid tubing, and something cold to store them in once they're full of beer!
Question: as far as tubing goes, do I *have* to use the red CO2 tubing and clear tubing that you get from the online/local beer places, or can I use vinyl tubing bought at home improvement stores?
