In a by chance conversation with an old co-worker, at lunch a few weeks back, I mentioned I was wanting to try brewing some beer. He mentioned that he had a Kegerator and some kegs I could have if I wanted them. He and his wife don't drink, but they used to own a KOA camp ground for a few years and he brewed root beer for the patrons there, it just sits in his basement now. He sent me pics and says he has 10 kegs to go with the setup, just needs a co2 tank. I'm picking it up this weekend.
After some nudging I got him to charge me $200 for all of it though, I felt bad just taking it as none of this stuff is cheap. I know the kegerator new alone was about $600.
After lots of questions to another member here, I think I've got a vague grip on things I'll need for brewing. I ordered this kit last night and some cleaners for the equipment. I'll wait until I get the equipment to order new o-rings, lines, and an additional tap or two. As long as there is some hard cider flowing from one off the taps, my wife will allow it to adorn the sunroom downstairs...at least the kegerator.
