Looking to buy some kegging equipment...
« on: August 26, 2008, 07:29:42 PM »
I found a pretty nice set of four 5 liter kegs with a tap and a few other accessories for about $120 on Midwest brewing supplies.  I wonder if anyone else has used a set up like this and if you recommend or would avoid this product.

Also how you feel taste compares from kegged to bottled.

Thanks,
Jordan

The only time I bottle is to send them to friends, or enter competitions. I like the simplicity of it, and the bulk conditioning vs bottle conditioning is a debate that many have debated. For me its about the simplicity of it. I have nine five gallon kegs now and two three gallon kegs. I briefly looked on MW supplies but did not find anything so I cant tell you if it is a good deal or not. FYI: I pick up my kegs on EBay for anywhere between $10 to $20 per keg.

I got my kegging stuff from homebrewing.org, I'd suggest basing your equipment choices upon commonality and maintenance.
