Can someone post the source for cheap three gallon cornies again (I think it was BCI? But I could be mistaken)? I lost the number and need a few. Thanks!

rcbequip.com has them for $32.50, there was another source that people were getting them from also.

In a phrase - Supply & Demand. 5 gallon Corny kegs are (were?) the "standard" size, so there's literally millions of them out there. The 3 gallon ones were less popular for soda dispensing, so there were fewer of them, so they command a higher price.

It's a shame, because the 3 gallon kegs are pretty handy. I picked a nice one up off eBay for $31.

Try BevCon International. 901-476-8005. Located just outside of Memphis, TN. They usually have tons of them.

Has anyone ordered through BevCon? If so, did the kegs come in decent condition? How much did they charge (I'll probably want a bundle)?

I talked to Bevcon on the phone a while back and the prices were very good, it was the shipping to Canada that was insane. I sure would like a couple 3's but $65 after shipping is waaayayyy too much for me.
