  • Grolsch is a brand of beer from the Netherlands. Their bottles are usually green, with a ceramic lid with a rubber gasket, held in place with a metal attachment. They're pretty nice, but beer in them should be kept out of sunlight.

IMHO, the only thing of real value in the list are the CO2 regulators and the Cornelius kegs. They will only be useful if the seals are all intact. Are they worth $200? Possibly if in GOOD condition... If you have to clean the rest then it may just as well be bought new.


That's a fair price if everything is in good condition, everything there is about 400-500 new as a kit.

Plastic fermenting parts can be risky used. If their history of use was with sours or Brett beers, they should only be used for that.

Some hidden costs. Check the date on the co2 tank, it's about $12 to fill but add $40 or so to have certified if out of date.

Kegs can be rebuilt for $5 oring kit. Pipets can be $20 a keg but rarely fail.
