To me the biggest issue is the chiller. The carbonators are cheap on ebay or craigslist. But chillers run from $300 on Amazon (e.g. Elkay) to $1200 (e.g. kegman.net) and I cannot figure out which ones are good enough. They also need to be vented well or they'll burn up in a year.
Um, sorry I just realized this is from 3 years ago...any word on how it turned out?
