Kegging and Bottling / Re: Some very basic kegging questions
« on: July 31, 2012, 04:08:52 PM »
Thanks for the replies (and the welcome!).  Good to know that while the pin and ball lock systems are incompatable, they are both good. 

I've seen several "complete" 5 gal. systems for sale online for approx. $180 which doesn't sound too bad.  I would have to locate a source for the co2, but I'm in a city so that shouldn't be too hard. 

Do you guys recommend starting out with a "complete" system (to make sure you have everything)?  Or would you simply pick up a keg and fill in the blanks?

Once again - thanks for the advice!

Kegging and Bottling / Some very basic kegging questions
« on: July 31, 2012, 09:40:29 AM »
Hi Everyone:

I've been homebrewing for a while, but just discovered the AHA and I am a new member.  This is my first forum post.

I'm interested in getting some kegging equipment and trying that out (instead of bottling).  But I'm a little overwhelmed by the choices (pin locks, ball locks, etc.)  Is there a place on the AHA site that has some basic info./guidance for the "kegging curious."  (I may well have missed an obvious FAQ on this topic - if so, sorry!)

Otherwise, if any of you have the time, I would really appreciate any advice - i.e. which locking system is preferable?  what equipment is really necessary to start out?  where's the best place to get equipment? etc.
