Ball Lock kegs $18 each

I don't know. They look good and all. And the sellers feedback is ok. However, everyone should be immediately suspicious of any seller requesting that you circumvent the eBay checkout. The majority of the time it is a scam when you are asked to do so. That may not be the case here but just be cautious.

That being said, I will probably order one. However, if the seller wasn't being a bonehead (circumventing the eBay checkout is against eBay policy) I would probably by 4 of them. Considering they are violating policy it is likely this auction will disappear soon.

Good luck, and be safe.

I just bought 4 kegs yesterday from Sabco before I found this. Didn't notice the bypass, don't do too much buying on ebay. I sent a memo off to ebay asking if this practice was acceptable and asked for a reply, we'll see.



This place has them at 13.00 + shipping, http://www.homebrewing.org/home.asp
a fellow brewer posted that link in another forum.

I bought 12 ball lock kegs early this spring from a different scource for 120.00, last I heard that seller hadnt answered emails for a while, I will keep my eyes open and if I hear any good news about him I will post his url in this thread as well, Cheers...John

::edit:: price of ball lock keg is 13.00+shipping
