Hey guys, I was looking for some kegs on ebay and stumbled across this listing:
5 gallon ball lock keg syrup tanks

The shipping is outrageous, but if you wanted say 4 or more it comes down to 40 bucks each shipped. They also say they negotiate on pallet loads if they have that many left. As always meticulously read the description on eBay to make sure you're not getting screwed. I know it's a B**** to find cornies under $50 now, so I thought I'd give a heads up.

Cheers!

I had a friend pick up some in person for me, said they had a warehouse full. They let him cherry pick the ones he wanted then pressure tested them. Probably going to get him to pick up 4 more next time he goes that way.

Email this guy direct and ask him the pricing, I ordered a few from him and got them shipped for like 34 buck. still would like a few more so that I can brew 10 gallon batches. The price break is on 4.

Not bad but I'm looking for the <$25/keg deal.

While buying directly from this guy is probably mutually beneficial (no eBay fees, cheaper), anyone electing to go this route should realize you're not covered by eBay's buyer protection program. In other words, if it arrives defective, you're SOL.

I am relatively local and stopped by the warehouse. He has more kegs than you could imagine. He was really nice, let my friend and I cherry pick our kegs, and even threw in some defective ones so we could strip them of dip tubes and such.

I highly recommend dealing with this guy and doubt he would cheat anyone. He even cut us a deal since we bought in bulk and picked up local.

Here is photo proof. And this isn't even all we picked up. the lid-less kegs are the defective ones he gave us. They still had good posts and dip tubes, but bad welds. Every keg was squeaky clean on the inside.

That should be never. Cornelius kegs have been heavily out of the industry for... 20 years now? New manufactures are making some but they cost $100+. You could find them for $25-30 about 10 years ago, but I wouldn't expect a well functioning corny for under $30 now.
Sad future days for home brewers. Be sure to take good care of your kegs!

I bought two pallets (40 total kegs) from this company a couple of months ago. They are a legit beverage distributor and by contacting them directly you do get a better deal but you are also dealing with a reputable company, not some random individual. No need to worry about not being covered by eBay's buyer protection, at least in my experience. Of the 40 I received two were iffy (one had bad welds the other wouldn't hold pressure). One quick email and a couple days later I had two replacements at my doorstep. I didn't even have to send back the others so I can use those for parts. Great experience and considering how difficult it is to find ball locks in any quantity anymore, a decent deal as well.
