I posted a request for bottles on freecycle and was offered a good deal on a kegging system. I bitched the guy out a little bit for trying to sell stuff to people on freecycle...then I bought it.
Still need one more cornie if anyone in SE WI wants to unload one.

Wolf:

That SuperLarry Guy is in the Fox Valley somewhere I think. You'd have to ask BernieBrewer aka Ablrbarau. Without shipping, you could get a smokin deal on cornies.

I bought my first one from my LHBS. Numbers 2-5 came from a local store that has a crapload of them for sale for pretty cheap. I actually need to go get more of them soon.

I also have three 3 gallon cornies that get more use than the other ones. One of them is ball lock and an older style that I am thinking about putting on e-bay to help fund some more brewing purchases. These things are going for ridiculous prices right now. Upwards of 100 bucks for them.
