This is how i found my cornies on craigslist - In my text searches i started looking for old soda machines with words like pepsi, coke, soda, pop, etc. Sometimes restaraunts and such have cornies for sale but they really dont know what they are or who might be interested in them. I found a guy selling an old soda fountain with the kegs and all the hooks ups. He even had a 20 lb CO2 bottle i got for a song. I got all of it for much less then what i would have spent with one of the online stores.

For the past several years keg connection has run a black Friday keg sale for $20-25 per keg. These are the lower condition models but still work very well.

I just picked up a complete kegging kit with 3 kegs and a brass 3 tap tower from Beverage Factory, Great deal on the brass tower, and good pricing on the kegging kit, Now Im going to need some more ball lock kegs "cheap" as I already spent my extra money lol

Cheers

I have been looking for some cheap kegs myself and think I hit on a nice find. This site comes from the reccomendation of another HBT'er but I dont remember who, but thanks to them!

http://www.bvrgelements.com/product/...all-Lock-Used/

This kegs are $23 each and the only problem with them is a busted/cut handle and maybe a dent or two. I havent ordered any yet but plan to soon!

Better order quick, they run out of them pretty fast from what I have seen.
