Not to mention used ball lock cornies keep going up in price as the supply is getting shorter. I looked at them a few years ago when I wasn't brewing yet, $25. Got started brewing in January, but bottling, $40. Now the local brew shops around me are starting to go up. My main one is still holding at $40, but I'm sure it won't be long before another hike.
I force carbonated my first and only keg to date. Might actually just prime the next one with sugar and let it carb on it's own in the basement (CO2 blanket first of course). Seems like it would be easier than continually checking, but who knows.
