Just been to the LHBS and they have 19 litre kegs for $35.00.

The brand name on them was AG on one and Firestone on the other and they have ball locks.

Im still a fair way off getting into kegging but these seem fairly cheap and was wondering if I should grab them as he only has two left from a stock of 15.

Are these brands ok?

Damn cheap @ $35.

Pin locks can be had for about $40 each, normally 2 for $100 with disconnects, seal kits etc.
Ball Locks normally way more ~$65-85.

I have firestone, challenger and some other brand one at home. My Firestone is blue, was that one?

Cheers,
D80

East of dandy can only be 2 places.... I could use kegs... Lol

Grab em truman before someone else does. Ring the store ask them to put aside.for u. Ask em if they r geltting anymore in and u might be able to get some more. u could tell them there is a market waiting for.

Its alright if you want them give him a call. Im really not ready yet and have more important purchases that need to be made.

Just curious if it was a good buy or not as he may get some more in later when I am ready.

But if you do buy them, when you pick them up you must call into my work at Hallam and drop me off a couple of HB's as a spotters fee.... :icon_cheers:

Its not 2 for 1 they are $35 each. SWMBO would probably go ballistic if I spent $70 on more brewing gear as Ive been spending a bit lately and were supposed to be saving for a trip to Cains in May.

Lately shes been on the "You spend a lot of money on a hobby that encourages you to drink more beer which isnt good for you" bandwagon...Sheesh... :angry:

How about replying with "I work long hours in a less than enjoyable vocation to provide a comfortable living for my family and in the very least this should entitle me to the enjoyment of a weekly six pack and occasional session with friends. Home brewing is an investment that will reduce the cost of my inevitable consumption of beer by 5 times."

You cover moral and economical reasoning. Works for me. ;)

And yeah, I'd grab the kegs now at that price if you can get it past the wife without her busting your balls over it. Trust me, I know that it's sometimes not worth the emotional energy.

Edit: Also, my grandpa (who my wife really likes) attributes his youthful character to a daily beer or two, despite being 90 already! This seems to help too! Everyone knows an old fella doing well for themselves who drinks ber.

I meant that u pay $60 odd for 1 ball lock keg so its basicly 2 for 1. Just use any excuse. thats how I went from 2 to 4 to 12.
