Definitely go w/ the 3 gal kegs made in Italy. Both Keg Connection & Beverage Elements have them. BE is usually less.
Great quality - I have six now. But, you'll pay $90-100.

There were threads about the new, cheap, kegs posted when they were newer to the market earlier this year. Remember reading about coatings being on them, as well as the significantly thinner metal used in the manufacture of them. IMO, I want a serving keg that I have zero concerns over the quality of them. The Italian made kegs I have/own are rock solid.

BTW, I picked up a pair of 5 gallon kegs on Friday in order to carbonate a couple of bigger brews (9% and 12%) in the basement. I'll probably also use my 2.5 gallon kegs for what doesn't fit into the 5 gallon kegs. Or fill the 2.5 gallon kegs and then send the rest into the 5 gallon kegs. I had a pair of Visa gift cards from last year's holiday season ($50 each) that would have had fees applied after a year of not using them... So, the kegs cost me under $20 for the pair. Hope to get some more of those gift cards this holiday season. Could use a couple more 3 gallon kegs to allow me to brew more batches and not worry.

I have two of the Chinese kegs and have put two different batches through them without any problems. A little rust discoloration around handle welds but this seems to wash off. So far I'm pretty happy with them.

I splurged on one, the sold out in a day, wish I bought two. Just got it yesterday, you can tell the quality isn't there, but to throw a beer in there should work just fine.

Just a quick note for anyone looking for 2.5 Gallon Kegs - morebeer.com has them on promotion at $99 each with free shipping. This ends at the end of the month. These are the rubber top stackable kegs from Italy - not the cheap Chinese ones. Just a quick FYI on those for anyone that hasn't seen one in person - the welds are rather poor and are definitely not sanitary. Thought I'd let everyone looking for small kegs know - on sale for another week!

Cheers!
