I tend to be a hoarder with stuff like that.. I also seem to have great luck.. found a BUNCH of 6.5 gallon carboys a while back for 3 bucks each..... a friend called me a while back...bought a storage room in one of those auctions.. had 96 ( I think) carboys in it!!!

Beverage Elements is pretty decent deal. Looks like they are out of stock right now. But for 28 bucks worth the wait. I bought two from them, the ones I received were in great shape.http://www.bvrgelements.com/product/...dle-Ball-Lock/

Thanks Dan, seems like they are gone as fast as they get them in.

Cheers

That's where I got mine. I'd also try to get one or two more than what you need that way you can have some kegs on deck whenever any on tap kick out. Hope this helps.
Did those kegs come in good condition?
From the guy on ebay I mean.

For used, I'm not going to complain. At the time, he had the "bad ones" for $28/ea (what I got) and the better shaped ones for about $10 more. I found that link from someone on the NB boards, so I went in and bought six off the bat, thinking I'd get ahead of the curve if the used market starts drying up.

He ships them with a bit of pressure in them as I guess he's double checking that they hold pressure. Three of the six I had still had pressure, and the other three didn't. I posted about that over at NB, and a couple of members there think all I should have to do is just change the seals and I'll be good. I don't have the funds to get a kegging setup going yet, but figured I would take advantage of some used kegs while they were available. I also want to add a few more of those stackable 2.5 kegs while they're still under $80 at AiHB.

Ok people, We need to start over again with where to get cheap keg deals, in the last few weeks several of these places have run out of stock or have jacked there prices way up, so where is the current cheapest place to get kegs at now?

Cheers

I just scored a brand new keg (NIB) off of Craigslist as part of a package deal. Keep an eye on CL and you'll see good deals come up now and then.
