Thinking about getting a keg is this everything I need?
 
Hey guys, I am sure you get questions like this all the time but if I were to get a setup sort of like this would it be everything I needed?

1. Ball lock leg

2. This kit

And then I have several old 20 oz CO2 canisters I used for paintball, could I just use those?

3. Obviously a fridge but I would need a temp regulator for it as well correct?

Thanks!

Looks complete.

You would need to buy an adapter to use the 20 oz canisters, but lots of people use them.

You don't need a temperature controller for serving beer from a fridge, only if you use a freezer.

Before you buy the paintball adapter, you should price out a used CO2 tank and refill vs the paintball. Typically, places give a substantial deal for the larger fills vs smaller.

Yeah I was thinking about this a little more and I think I would probably rather just go for a 5 or 10 lb tank then spending money for the adapter.
