Tried to look this up but the only posts i found were 1 to 3 years old. So, I decided to ask. I was planning on beginning to keg my brews soon and I was wonder what sites offer the best quality for the best prices. I was kinda thinking AHB because of the flat rate shipping. Also, I plan on turning a chest freezer into a kegerator. I was looking for recommendations on C02 tank size and keezer conversion kits. And pretty much all other aspects as well, no one else around me kegs their beer so I am pretty much clueless. I plan on having 2 brews on tap, possibly 3 at the very most. Thanks everyone.

Beveragefactory.com has decent prices, I bought all of my stuff there, their 5lb CO2 tanks are under $60. Williams Brewing has a decent price on a complete Perlick facucet/shank/handle combo, I think it's like $49.

Any of the major homebrewing supply stores offer kegging start up kits.

This sticky also has a lot of great links and resources

I bought my start up stuff from kegconnection.com, and then my extra kegs from a vendor here on the site, http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f16/corn...gs-sale-46176/

I highly recommend both of them. I have good things to say about the price, the customer service, and the quality of my equipment.

I recently got a kegging kit from Midwest. There was a problem with the regulator and they sent me a new one in days. Not only that I got an upgraded regulator for free! Great service.

I scored most of my equipment from a fellow homebrewer on Craigs List. I got a chest freezer, temperature controller, two faucets, two shanks, 5lb CO2, and a dual gauge regulator for only $50. Moral of the story, check CL first.

+1 for kegconnection.com. I haven't bought from insco2 yet, but based upon the feedback that he's received I would not hesitate to do so.

I've also purchased kegs from homebrewingadventures.com for $17.99/ea before shipping.
