15% Off Used Ball Locks at Great Fermentations + Analysis: What’s the Best Deal on a Ball Lock Keg… Right Now??

As of this posting, Great Fermentations is taking 15% off used 5 gallon ball lock kegs.  That makes these kegs $59.49 each.  No coupon code is needed.  Considering flat rate shipping, and the current market, I think this is a solid deal.  Check out my full analysis and comparison below.

5 Gallon Used Ball Lock Corny Keg

Analysis and Comparison:

Ground rules – when free shipping is available at a certain threshold, shipping costs are considered $0.  Free shipping is to addresses in lower 48 US states.  This is a comparison of single keg pricing, lower prices may be available when purchasing bulk quantities or multi-packs.  Prices are valid as of 10/17/18. Prices, shipping and availability can change quickly. Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change. Prices and availability were accurate at the time this this post was published; however, they may differ from those you see when you visit the product page. Check the product page for current price, description and availability.

Bottom line, In my opinion, considering price and shipping, I believe Home Brew Supply’s offering is the best current value for a single 5 gallon ball lock – remember coupon code HBF25 to get free shipping.  Beverage Elements offering is a couple dollars less, but that’s for class 4 kegs that are pretty beat up.

About Intertap’s unique forward sealing design, via MoreBeer: “Other forward sealing faucets use a floating o-ring, which is just as sanitary but requires the o-ring to move inside the faucet body in order to seal correctly. This can become a problem as the faucet ages. Intertap faucets use a sliding shuttle that guides the o-ring into the perfect position every time.”

There are four different faucets available: Chrome plated, stainless steel, stainless steel with flow control, and gold plated stainless steel with flow control.
