I Live in the Sacramento area and I need a couple more corney kegs. I'm looking for a place to get them so I don't have to pay the 50$ each my local home brew store asking. Any ideas?

Yea that seems to be the problem. Shipping is outrageous. Wish I could find a hook up with a local soda company, that way I wouldn't have to pay for shipping.

Have you ever tried metal salvage yards? I found eleven 3 gallon corny's at local salvage at $20/each... great condition and the price unheard of.

most of the local cheap places have been cleared out. the chi company used to sell 4 for $80, but he got cleared out a couple years ago. your best bet now is probably either original homebrew outlet or the folsom brewmeister. $50 for a keg nowadays isn't too bad.

Ok, i make a monthly trip to More Beer in Concord to buy my bulk grain. They have them for 50$ also. Guess I'll just keep getting them there. Just wish I knew someone in the soda business....

does anyone know where [email protected] got his supply? He'd come around San Diego/LA a few times a year with a truckload of cornies and sold them for $35, good quality. He said his december 2011 run was his last.
