I am making the leap from bottles to Corneys. So far all I have are 3 pin locks, as well as 3 ball locks on the way. I am going to be ordering this basic kegging setup, http://www.brewersdiscount.com/item153277.ctlg but want to know what else to order from them to get atleast 4-6 kegs up and serving. I have my freezer all picked out, I just am having trouble decifering what else I need. I am guessing some regulators, as well as a manifold, http://www.brewersdiscount.com/productCat15953.ctlg. What would ya'll suggest I get?

I come to the Kegging Gurus for help and inspiration.

I'd say that you don't need a dual regulator for the CO2 tank. It's virtually useless. I have one and wish I had listened to my friend when he said that it was useless. You may want individual regulators for your manifold in case you are going to serve your beers at different pressure levels but that could come later.

I need to buy a C02 tank and some regulators and gas lines, I was wondering where I should do that?

Your nearest welding supply has everything. You also get your CO2 refills there. I have a 20 LB tank and that lasts a long time between refills. I keep it outside the cooler so I have more room. Be careful if you drill through your cooler so you don't hit any refrigerant tubing or coils. Get help from an experienced brewer so you have success. Ball lock corny kegs are best as they are way more available as well as parts for them.

With the exception of the kegs, I got my initial kegerator gear from micromatic.com. I also prefer Ball Lock Corny Kegs.
