That bulge on the bottom is normal for "racetrack" lid kegs...the bottom metal is "channeled" so the beer funnels over to the bulged area. They aren't conical shaped like new (oval lid) ball-lock kegs.

Got my black Friday order late Friday. $20 b-grade keg, the pre-black Friday pin-lock kit (co2 tank, regulator, gas and bev line hoses with qd's, pin-lock keg), and perlick 575ss. Everything works, except for the plastic picnic tap which "always" works (i.e. it runs even when shut off as I found out the hard way after putting liquid in the keg and gassing it up). I tried unscrewing the top and re-seating it, but to no avail, so I replaced it with another picnic tap I had laying around. Both kegs hold a seal, and the $20 b-grade keg looks just as good as most of my other kegs. The pin-lock keg has a slightly bent gas post, but it functions correctly (doesn't appear to be leaking, I checked with Star San) so I'm not all that concerned.

I haven't been able to use the Perlick (and won't for a while), but it looks perfect. I also haven't yet used the co2 container, but it looks fine and is dated 10/11. (I will fill it later this week to check it out/put it into use.)

The packing job was done nicely, with plenty of absorbing paper. The regulator was nicely bubble wrapped as was the co2 container.

All in all I am happy with my purchase and the service (but did wish the picnic tap didn't leak).

That's a good point - I didn't comment on the packing because I took it for granted. Everything was securely bubble wrapped and separated to prevent damage. Nice job by Anthony (I'm assuming)!

just want to say I got my order today and everything was perfect. Even the B grade kegs are in decent shape, and all 3 kegs were pressurized in the box which I have to appreciate since im sure it stops dents during shipping, and guranteed to me that they hold pressure.

great sale, and ill definitely use Kegconnection in the future

My buddy and I put together my dual tap kegorator this morning. There were a couple of unexpected suprises and problems (having to drill a second hole for the second gas line and having to get a large enough drill bit) that I will be contacting Customer Service about on Monday, but it it working now. Can't wait for my beers to carb. After all the phone contact with them, I am surprised that they didn't warm me about this.

Default update

Spoke to Todd this afternoon and he apologized for the problems I was having and the delay in communications from his customer service personnel. I told him I could understand, especially this time of the year. He promised to send out the parts to correct the damaged pieces I had received. Got to love it when you don't have to beg the vendor to believe you and they understand where you are coming from. Kudos KC.
