I've been shopping around the beer equipment stores for a kegging system. Is it better to by one of the starter packages (keg, co2 tank and regulator) or buy the pieces individually? I'd like to stay at $200 or less which may be an issue.

I was reading some of the reviews on the basic packages and alot of people regretted not getting a dual tap system instead... I guess to have two beers on top or maybe drink one and force carbonate the other?

This is one I was looking at... it's a $230 but may be worth the extra expense?

That's the exact kit I purcahses this summer and love it, although it was $200 at that time. Through my research the regulator is not the best but for my use it will serve it's purpose just fine.

jasonclick - you may be interested in this one that we carry. It's in the same price range, and comes with Ball Lock kegs instead of Pin Locks. But not a double body reg.

Best of luck, and welcome to kegging! You won't want to go back to bottling.
