Hi All,

I grabbed this equipment the other day. As I had only just started looking into a keg system I dont really know the prices etc but this seemed like a bargain to me. Did I do OK? - I paid $450 for
2X Kegs
2X Regs
2X Couplings
Temprite
1X spare Tap
Lots of disconnects and T piece


Secondly looking at the regs, I assume the single is no good for a keg setup. Does the double look about right?

Cheers BDB

Assuming the temprite, kegs and regs are in working order it sounds like a reasonable price to me.
Good score.

That last reg especially looks like it needs a good clean, operational or not. I'd look at pulling it apart (I've never done it so don't know how hard it is) and clean it thoroughly. Just remember that a dirty reg or dirty gas lines can blow contaminants though into your kegged beer so you want them spotless.

Also worth replacing all the beer and gas lines with brand new BEVA tubing.

Cheers, Justin

if it all works - very good score - single reg looks a bit dodgy.
Where did u get it all from.

If it is ball lock kegs - even better - pin lock are being phased out and harder to get.

I can help you out on new beer and gas line.

Nice work, the commercial fittings etc. are really quite expensive.

The tap shanks alone with the snaplok fitting are worth about $40 (new that is), but still, considering what you paid all up its not too bad..
