I have seen these advertised on Craigslist

is this all I need minus a tower and a fridge?

$70 - New 5lb CO2 tank (empty)
$45 - Taprite dual gauge CO2 regulator
$35 - Used 5 gallon ball-lock Cornelius keg
$10 - 5' 3/16" beer line w/ 1/4" MFL and picnic tap <- would I need this?
$8 - Ball-lock gas IN disconnect
$8 - Ball-lock liquid OUT disconnect
$5 - 2x1/4" MFL tubing adaptors
$2 - 4' 1/4" gas line
$1 - 2 one ear clamps

would I need anything else need to build?
Is this a good deal?

Hi, that looks about right. The picnic tap is what you would use instead of faucet. Is a mini fridge included in that price? If not, I don't think its a good price. You can get a basic keg kit at kegconnection for $55. 1 Keg Basic Keg Kit, Standard PIN LOCK Plus another $35 for a keg for a total of $90.

There are not many frig's that are suitable for conversion. I just did a Kenmore one but they are few and far between. You might want to find the frig first or consider using a full-sized frig and going through the door.
