I'm trying to find the absolute cheapest place to pick up a couple of kegs, including shipping to northern Indiana. So far, the cheapest I can find is Kegconnection.com grade B kegs. The LHBS here only sells new kegs (at $99 a pop...). I don't mind dented and/or ugly kegs, just need them to be cheap and hold pressure. The only other idea I have left is to stop by the local Pepsi plant and see if they might happen to have a few stashed somewhere that I could nab from them. I've been watching craigslist for a month now and other than picking up a 20lb CO2 tank and fridge for free, no luck on kegging stuff...

Any ideas??

Thanks!

I think you answered your own question. Keg Connection's prices are hard to beat.

to those who advocate kegconnection.com, do you usually recieve cornelius brand kegs or firestone brand kegs? I like to keep all my kegs the same, on the site it says that you could recieve either...

I have not had any luck with Pepsi plants. We have a bottling facility near by. I sent some emails to a few people there and they said that they can not give away or sell the kegs to the public. The reasoning was that they could guarantee what was stored in the kegs so they wouldn't want to be liable if something happened.
