I should have taken up sailing if I wanted a cheap hobby...
I'm looking to set up a starter dual keg system and after shopping around I'm leaning to Beverage Elements.
Here's what I have so far:
2.5 Gallon Ball Lock Kegs Two Pack – Dual Handle – New – AEB - Italy
Taprite Dual Body CO2 Regulator – Triple Gauge, Two Outlet
(2) - Ball Lock Liquid and Gas Line Pigtail Set - Quick disconnect - Picnic Faucet
I have a source for exchanging a 5# CO2 tank, so that's covered. I also plan on picking up extra O Rings, lube and poppets from MoreBeer in order to help with free shipping when I buy yeast/grains etc.
1) I brew 2.5 gal batches and usually end up packaging a little less...maybe 2.25 gallons. I won't be expanding batch size in the foreseeable future, if ever. Personal drinking habits aside, any reason 2.5 gallon kegs wouldn't be the ideal size?
2) Am I missing anything essential? (Yes, I have a spare fridge!) The kegerator will have to wait for another day.
