Hello i am starting to get some equipment together to start a home brew... i would like to setup up a keg system .. I went to the brew shop and they were selling kits for about $450 with 2 kegs ( I am in Perth ) .. just wondering if there is a cheaper way of setting it up ??? any help would be great

I ended up paying about $450 for mine, can't complain as it was convenient and if I had any problems they could be fixed locally (TWOC). Have since bought a couple of kegs from ultimate air.

Try TWOC (probably where you did?) or try Ultimate Air in Osborne park (you will probably need a seal kit to fix their kegs as they are as-is). I am sure there are other shops that sell them as well.

Beside that if you search for Kegs from the US here you will see where you can get them via ebay, 12week wait but perhaps cheaper. Get your reg in Aus however as I think the yanks have different threads etc.

Hope that helps.

Hey Jaz,

I totally agree with Jason on this. I recently setup a keg system and the thread size on the regulators and cylinders are different to that here in Aus (I learnt that the hard way :angry: ). I would get everything except the regulator and cylinder over ebay from the US, I got my stuff from Tom Hargrave Sales and it only took 10 days (pretty lucky). Then get a regulator from Andale if you can, about $80, they are pretty much the cheapest guys around for everything. As for a co2 cylinder I went for a fire extinguisher and ended up picking a 3.5kg one up for $100, tested and filled.

Good Luck
Jye
