    Finally getting around to draught beer at home. Any suggestions for best places to buy kegs and get C02 refills would be appreciated.

    This is the first time in a long time that I have browsed the South-Atlantic forum - great resource! I have learned a lot about the Charleston area on this forum and Charleston is my home.

    I would guess Total wine/Bottles for the kegs.

    I get my co2 from airgas on dorchester, but apparently there's a place right off montague, maybe a few miles closer, next to the fox tv station.

    Thanks! Yeah, Total Wine was what I was thinking for kegs unless somebody had a better idea.

    I did not have clue on the C02 except the Yellow Pages. Does Airgas fill your tank or exchange?

    I have 2 5#ers so I never really pay attention, but I would say exchange. Don't quote me on that.

    Thanks! It really does not matter. I was just hoping I would not have to exchange a shiny new tank for a grubby, beat up old tank.

    I've never had any problems with the ones I've gotten from them. I just looked and one had someones name in marker on it, so they do exchange (at least the small ones).

    I had heard that most places would only do it that way.

    I've used Airgas a lot and you may have to let go of your shiny cylinder; gas is gas. It's $15-20 to refill a 20#tank Are you looking for homebrew (corny) kegs or shells?

    Thanks! That is relatively close to me and while I would go either way, I like the idea of refilling my tank versus exchanging. Of course, as NotACommunist (great screen name) says, gas is gas.
