It seems that everyone wants kegs, so I'm looking into starting a group buy for the area around Northern MA. The region can grow if people don't mind driving. I make trips from Lowell, MA through Lebanon, NH about once a month. Right now we're just emailing each other getting quantity estimates. Further news and thread to come.

Sad future days for home brewers. Be sure to take good care of your kegs!
That's true if you're buying from a commercial vendor. All of my kegs came from craigslist for much less than $20 each. In fact, most ex-homebrewers in the area seem to sell them for $25. I don't mind waiting for the next deal.

I'm glad to hear that this is a reputable vendor. Sounds like a great deal if you want your kegs now.

I'm about an hour and a half away from them. If I can get some interest I'd drive down and pick them up for anybody willing to help with gas expense. I can probably get about 20 - 25 in my SUV so a tank of gas spread out would only add about $2 or $3 per keg.

thanks OP for the link. I placed an order for 5 of these. Besides giving these an oxyclean soak and replacing the O-rings, what else should be done to these?

Generally you'll want to pressure test them. Also, it never hurts to have some extra poppets on hand as well as pressure relief valves. This is assuming that they're in good shape otherwise you could need new posts. Luckily, all of these pieces are readily available from most online homebrew vendors.

Ok, so I started a thread for a group buy for New England.

Anyone interested please post there, not here.

Notts, click on the eBay link. The seller's contact information is on his profile.
