Northern brewer is having a sale right now. You buy a 5 gallon keg kit and get an extra (used) 5 gallon keg for free.

If you aren't in a hurry CL can be a great place to find them. A while back I bought 3 ballocks for $90. The guy was in a town about 30 miles from my house so I drove over and picked them up. He was a homebrewer going pro and got rid of all his cornies. I got the last three.

I was at my LHBS picking some grain. I asked about the price for the used kegs. He said 75 bucks a piece. WTF!! 75 bucks!! Thank god I have a bunch. I think I paid 25 a few years back.

CL is frustrating at times, but I have picked up all 8 of mine there. 3 from a homebrewer scaling down due to youngens and the others just recently from another HBer scaling down. Weeks if not months apart, but as of today well worth the wait.

I pretty much ended up paying $25-$30 each.
