Good price for Perlicks?
 
I've been searching around and looking for sales etc but prices seem to vary and I'm honestly not sure what would be a "good price" for perlick faucet + shank. Don't necessarily need stainless, chrome is fine. What have you guys gotten them for?

ritebrew.com. I bought chrome Perlicks for 18.40 a piece

Well that's the best I've seen, thanks! Do you need Perlick shank as well or will off brands work just as well?

CGVT 08-30-2012 03:53 PM

Off brands are fine. I bought the chrome shanks/tailpiece combo form them too. It seemed to be the easiest way to go.

I think that they knock $10 off of the shipping if you buy $100 worth of stuff. My shipping was about $6

Awesome thanks again!

If you want to go stainless I recommend Stainlessbrewing.com. I've got all my stuff from him. Actually ordered a couple perlicks the other day, shipped same day. Great guy to deal with.

I would be wary of $18 Perlicks, there are knock offs out there that do not work as well, and $18 is insanely cheap.

Look for faucet combo kits. Typically they're the same price as all the parts combined, so it's mainly a convenience factor. Includes shank, tap handle, faucet, mounting nut, etc. Everything needed to hook up a beer line and go. a good SS Perlick (525SS) faucet combo typically goes for about $45 each.

$18 does seem a bit sketch. The faucet itself usually goes for around $30-$35. I'd be wary of $18 "Perlicks"

I think CGVT was referring to chrome Perlicks, not SS. SS cannot be had for $18. Chrome, maybe.

Yeah I looked at some other companies and the chrome faucets are usually 21ish. 18 doesn't seem so far out of the realm of possibility.
