Found a micromatic under bar glycol chilled 4 tap draft dispenser all stainless steel for $15. Had 4 4-1/2" stainless steel shanks and 3 chrome faucets with two tail piers and nuts with 2 pinlock liquid disconnects. Retail was around 1300


It is now the top as a coffin top on my keezer. Build thread in diy almost done with it

I just got 2 cases of never-used 22oz bomber bottles in their boxes and an unopened gross bag of oxygen barrier caps off CL for free. I think that's a pretty good deal!

A couple of years ago I found a guy with 6 cornies for sale-he wanted $100 so I headed over there. His inlaws had a concession stand every year at the county fair and sold homemade sodas. In addition to the 6 kegs I got a 6 way cold plate, a 6 way gas manifold and a box of keg connectors. Big score for me

I bought this on CL a while back.



Just the O2 tank, cart and regulator. The rest I already had.

Listed for $25, tank was full. I chucked the breathing hose and use a beer line and .05 micron stone that I already had.

Gave the guy extra $25 to deliver it to my work instead of me going way up into Louisville, to get it. Still a good deal for me.

So do they know you're just turning around and selling it? That sounds dishonest to me, if you're appealing to the goodwill of a community that prides itself on fraternization. I'd be ok giving you something if I believed you'd use it, but not if you were trying to sucker me for a buck. I hope I'm understanding you wrong.

My score yesterday was two five gallon ball lock kegs, a 20lb co2 tank, regulator, and a chest freezer with temp controller for $175. After asking if he had any more brewing stuff for sale I ended up with a really nice keggle with thermometer and stainless ball valve and two glass 6 gallon carboys for $125. Total $300, definitely will help me on my way to kegging and 10 gallon batches.

Community goodwill and fraternization?

You're clearly not describing CraigsList.
