Home depot sells them in the 300 dollar range, I am sure you could probably find them cheaper on the web.

get a used refrigerator and buy the tap set on line. Then you can keep the frosted mugs in the freezer right above the tap.

I bought the tap setup for about $65 on Ebay. CO2 tanks are about $20.00. Check for a fridge for about $100 and good to go.

I think apt. or full size will do. Measure a keg and go shopping. You can always find a fridge in the Press for about $100. Freezer for mugs/bait/ice.

Get a 20 pound tank and use the 5 pound you usually get in a kit as a backup. You will be running to get the tank filled 4 times as often with the 5. Trust me, I'm a pro. No big deal, drill the holes and install. Usually just need a hole saw for the tap, It may be 1".
Get a nice tap handle to match the brew and enjoy.

No cans or bottles!
And like some of my paranoid friends say No cans and bottles for the neighbors to see. lol

Cheers

I have a five pound tank and keep my pressure around 15. It usually lasts at least 6 kegs sometimes I get 9 out of it. Do your self a favor and buy the gauge that tells you how much gas is left in the tank. That helps alot. Advantage rental in Seaville will fill your tank.
