My Girlfriend is becoming a a home brewing genius and I am happily along for the ride!

She has made a few wines and beers and I'm looking into buying her a keg for her birthday. I'm looking at buying her a used pepsi keg (found @ keg connection here ) and I just want to check in with some other hobbyist (that's you) and make sure that it is a good deal. Any things I should know before going forward?

looks to be a good deal to me. Also looks like you get some good freebies if you order soon (replacement o-rings, starsan, bottle opener)

Make sure that you have a local place to fill the CO2 without an exchange, otherwise you might be better off getting a tank locally that is used. Nothing worse than turning in a new shiny tank and getting a beat up one in exchange.

My first exchange I did find something worse. I traded in my shiny new aluminum one and for another nice looking aluminum one. The catch, it wouldn't fit in my mini fridge kegerator because its a few inches taller then the other one.
