Craig's list no help here.

$175 for a new corny, 5 lb CO2, picnic tap, dual guage, seems to be the best I've seen so far.(shipping not included)

Ive been researching stuff myself.
Cornies from Austin Home Brew 4 pack $149
Kegworks: CO2 and regulator.
Tower really take your pick not much difference if you are looking for the less expensive end. They are all like 120 and up. (well I've been looking at two and three tap towers)

That's pretty expensive, but I guess the shipping makes up for it

I too am looking to order a kegging system, and have been looking everywhere. I found something on kegconnection that looks too good to be true.

http://stores.kegconnection.com/Cart...5&sfs=76417016

Am I missing something or is this a great deal? I have not seen anything near this cheap for a two tap tower system with kegs. Is there something you can see that they left out that would be essential to the system?

I think I am going to have to jump on this. Forward sealing faucets and a 10# tank. for $420.

Gators:

I got pretty much that same set-up from Todd. It has absolutely everything necessary to serve beer through two taps... I upgraded to perlicks as well and I upgraded to the triple-guage regulator. The triple-gauge regulator is especially nice b/c you can set your two kegs at two different pressures, etc. I have a pale ale on tap at 12psi and a belgian on tap at 15psi. I likey!

The upgrade to 10b tank is nice if you have the room for it, but in the 4912 I can only fit the 5 and have been happy with it. Ran a bunch of kegs through it already and still have plenty o' gas left.

If ordering via the website with all the upgrades and such is too difficult, just give Todd a call or email and he'll set u up and send you an invoice. I worked with him over a few day period to get my set-up exactly like I wanted. I think I got out the door even cheaper than the $420 you mention (like $390 shipped maybe? - but again I only got 5lb tank and this was 6 mo or so ago)...

I bought my stuff at Midwest Supplies... some places dont even replace the seals and o-rings, they recommend that you do, and charge MORE for the kegs. I bought all of my equipment from Midwest, it arrived in perfect condition.

NOTE: SOME places dont replace rings... Keg connection DOES
