Default I just got an amazing craigslist deal. What is your best score?

Just got a kegerator. Holds two cornys and has a place for the co2 tank. Got the fridge, dual regulator, all the lines, two large co2 tanks, dual chrome tower, two wooden chalk board handles, and a drip pan. Oh not to mention he threw in two ball lock kegs with the kegerator purchase. Got this all for 175$. Today was a good day.

Personally my best was 6 ball lock cornies, 4 five gallon carboys, full 5lb co2 tank, regulator, 4 line distribution block, a couple picnic taps, miscallaneous stoppers, 3 growlers, and a few random odds and ends all for 230. Some older gentlemen just wanted to gt rid of it all.

A massive chest freezer that could accommodate 12 cornies at a time for free.

Also, 2 free ball lock kegs on a desperate occasion.

^ $35000 doesn't sound like a bargain. Unless your "big ones" are pretty damned tiny...

Cheers!

My neighbor who owns an industrial fabrication shop brought me a 100# CO2 tank for free when I got my kegerator. Had to chain this bad boy down to the studs in my basement and build a plywood lid so the kids couldn't knock it down or hit the regulator and cause a guided missle to shoot through my house!

My best craigslist score as far as brewing stuff goes is a freezer that will hold 3 cornies with room to spare for a carboy + bottles, a Johnson Controls temp controller, and a full 5lb co2 tank w/ regulator for a mere $100.

Just picked up a propane pool heater tonight. Had to take it apart and find the electrical problem that probably caused the previous owner to get rid of it, but looks like I just save myself about $2k!
