I just bought two from here, and found them (other than eBay) to be the cheapest online. I bought soaked the kegs in pbw and changed out the o rings with new ones from my local.

The kegs came with new lids and new lid o rings. One had a plastic gas tube, which really isn't an issue. I'll probably change it out as I have a spare, but it's worked just fine carbing up Denny's Rye IPA.

If you're planning on buying a small lot, maybe you could get the seller to lower the shipping price. I'm pretty sure I paid about $200 for my 6 kegs.


On another note, if you buy used kegs, check out McMaster for your seal kit. Here's a link to a thread telling which O-rings to get for your kegs. (link)

Good luck!

Post a wanted add on Craigslist!

I posted one, got no responses for about 2 weeks, then boom! A local brewer contacted me with 2 ball-lock's, a 15.5 gal. Sanke, and a 20# CO2 tank for $100.

Not bad

I get so frustrated looking for kegs for sale on CL and having to weed through dozens of D-bags with their kegs wanted ads willing to pay $20 for a half-barrel.

Every day...same D-bags...same worthless ads.

They should have a separate Want to Buy section.

So far this is the best deal, its $38 shipping for me, that makes them $42 each, so far from the looking I have done this seems to be the best deal around.
