hmm, I suppose that's even a better idea. I have a sanke coupler from when I used my kegerator for commercial micros. Now the -rator is all ball lock, so I have that Sanke D just sitting on a shelf.

Thanks for the idea

Nice pull, man!

I love finding those deals out there. I went to a garage sale (that I saw on CL) and got: a 5 gal carboy, a 6 gal carboy, a 6.5 gal carboy, a vinator, a floor corker, hydrometer and flask, a bottle tree (6 rings), and a box of misc. caps/brushes etc. all for $30. Unreal.

Not to try to "out-do" you but I got this stuff for FREE right here on HBT. Yep - a complete brewing system. (2) 8 gal kettles, custom brew stand with (3) 10" banjo burners, (2) propane tanks, propane low pressure manifold with individual burner controls, stainless immersion chiller, cooler mash tun, and water filter with RV hoses. I didn't take the mash paddle.

That's awesome! I didn't REALLY think it was the best Craigslist find ever, but probably won't do much better myself!

This should be a subforum section "look what I found for $X!"
I got 65ft (50 plus 15) of 3/8" copper for $30 on CL, but the recent HD findings have blown that away....) and a different ruuber-top Corny for $40 with new disconnects...

These are some really cool finds/deals guys. Killer deals to be had out there

Why would Lagunitas... have corny kegs? That's gotta be an interesting story.

Or they could've stored that 420 beer in it that they got busted for?
