How to Fix a Keg That Leaks – 5 Things to Check

New 5 Gallon Corny Keg Ball Lock

Adventures in Homebrewing has a nice step by step write up on fixing keg leaks.  I particularly like #5 “Post O-Rings”.  I find that to be a particularly pesky leak.  I’ve lost at least one full tank of CO2 to a bad oring that cost pennies – See: Checking for Gas QD CO2 Leaks for more on that.

Description

The Nostalgia Electrics Double Kegerator Twin-Tap Beer Keg Fridge in Stainless Steel dispenses beer easily and quickly to even the thirstiest crew. Swivel casters make it mobile enough to roll around the clubhouse, pool area or anywhere you want to get the party started. The included 2.5-pound CO2 bottle is good for about four 15-gallon kegs. The fridge features a 13-inch chrome tower, guard rail and dual spring loaded top-mounted tappers. Keep track of the amount of CO2 in the tank or adjust pressure with the included double meter regulator. Interior temperature is regulated by an adjustable thermostat and the unit can even be used as a standard refrigerator.

Specifications

  • Holds two ¹/6-barrel kegs, one ¼-barrel short, one ¼-barrel slim or one ½-barrel
  • Includes two keg couplers to fit only D-system keg valves; does not fit non-standard keg sizes
  • Adjustable thermostat with interior temperature range of unit is 30-40° F
  • Stainless steel door with black finish and 6.0 cubic feet of interior space
  • Includes empty 2.5-pound CO2 bottle and double meter regulator
  • Includes 13-inch chrome beer tower with two tappers and handles, guardrail and removable drip tray
  • Approved for commercial and household use and can be used as standard refrigerator

 

Note that this is set up for commercial kegs, but you should be able to easily convert it to homebrew kegs.  You could either cut the lines and swap out the the sanke couplers for pin or ball lock connectors or use something like this from Brew Hardware.
