I have been bottling all my brews for a little over a year. I found some kegs for sale, and I'm thinking about making the plunge.
Is this a deal?

80# tank of CO2 (1/2 full)
2 Cornelius 5 gal. kegs, with ball lock connectors.
1 CO2 pressure regulator.
They will also throw in a hydrometer and a couple Papazian books

I haven't done my research yet, any good kegging links would be greatly appreciated

whether or not it is a "deal" or not depends on the price.
an 80# tank is huge for what you need, though.

1st, you didn't mention how much it is selling for, so it is hard to tell if it is a deal.

2nd: 80# tank?!? There is no way it is fitting inside a fridge or keezer, that is probably 4-5 feet tall, and weights 60# or more empty

3rd, does the regulator come with hoses and QDs?

double guage regulator $40
Ball Lock Cornelius keg $25 each
books $5 each
hydrometer $5

the empty tank itself is worth way more than $150, no?

An 80lb tank, damn. We use a large amount of CO2 at work and we only get 50lb tanks. If you get this, you will probably want to chain that guy to the wall, no worries though, you will probably never need to get it filled but every 5 years.

Or sell it and get a 5lb tank like a normal human being. you will probably make enough profit to get the whole outfit for free...
