You could get an entire kegging setup for that price. Kegging > bottling

if you are dead set on getting flip tops then yes, that is a decent price. but I agree with jammin though, you could easily get two kegs, co2 tank, and all the fixings for 300 bucks. less if you craigslist it.

I just bought 120 @ $.50 a piece. Depending on the odds and ends brewing equiptment it may be worth it to try a little negotiating.

If you compare to the price of flip tops from LHBS then yes its a good deal but its still $0.80 per empty bottle, i would rather buy bottles with beer in it for not much more

Really, buy $300 worth of Grolsch and enjoy the premium lager.

Easier cleaning cycle, greater control over carbing, faster to get beer in a drinkable condition (eg forgetting about a party until the week before! ), takes up less storage room, the smugness that comes of having draft beer in your own home, ...
