It seems like corny keg prices are all oer the map. doing a simple search for "used pin lock cornelius keg" I see them from $11.99 on ebay to $38.95 on Cornykeg.com

That's a huge swing.

Relatively speaking, $40 isn't a ton of cash for something that has a lot of parts and steel, (considering a glass carboy goes for about the same or more), but if I can get 3 or 4 for the price of one, and they're the same quality?

I bought a kit from my LHBS 2 kegs, CO2 tank, regulator, hoses and picnic faucet... and nw I want to have 1 or 2 kegs on deck because of the inevitible.

thanks in advance!

The current going prices for reconditioned kegs are closer to $60-70/ea on other sites, a bit less if you're willing to put up with cut handles or other minor deficiencies. $40/keg is a good deal. $12/keg is too good to be true. :)

I had a feeling about the too good to be true part, but didnt realize that 40 was such a great deal. Thanks! – Ugly Dude Mar 31 '14 at 21:22
