My LHBS has a "complete" kegging setup for $175.00. This includes a cornelius keg, CO2 tank, all the lines and fittings and the picnic tap. I thought this sounded a little pricey. I could be wrong.

2 Keg Basic Keg Kit, Dispenses two kegs at once! (Separate Check Valves!)

This is a two keg system for $208. Obviously you'd have to pay shipping but you get double the pleasure, double the fun.

The single keg system is $158 I believe. By the time you pay shipping it would probably be a wash.

Is it maybe cheaper to take my time and piece it together when I find deals on individual kegging items?

Depends on the deals you find

Not to mention, how impatient you get in your searching; You can get cheaper, but the 'I want it now!' comes into play.

I spent a good deal of time trying to find deals to piece one together and could never make the numbers work. In the end, buying it all together was the best option. I'm really pleased with what I got from Keg Connection. Good quality and fast shipment.

Yeah I was thinking of pieceing mine together too but getting it all at once ends up working out pretty well, you won't regret having a keg, you may only regret just having one :P
