3 Gallon Used Pin Lock Kegs – $39 – small batch, split batch, portable serving + stacking deal

3 Gallon Cornelius Style Pin Lock Keg (Used)

Used 3 Gallon Pin Lock Kegs via AIH.  Pressure tested and guaranteed to hold pressure.


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Approx. 15″-16″ Tall
  • 9″ Wide
  • No Major Dents
  • Pressure Tested
  • Heavy Duty SS Kegs
  • 2 and 3 Prong Posts to Avoid Mistakes

3 gallon is a great size for splitting 5 gallon batches, small batch brewing, small space kegging and on the go serving.

It may seem counter-intuitive, but small kegs in the 2.5 to 3 gallon range typically sell for MORE than their larger 5 gallon counter parts.  It’s a bit confusing, if I had to guess why, I’d say… availability.

Availability of these is touch and go.  As of this posting, these are in stock and on sale for $39.  That’s a savings of $20.99. For some pricing clarity… that’s less than the per keg price available via the four packCheck AIH for current price and availability.

Stacks With: As of this posting AIH is discount most orders by up to $50 depending on how much you spend as part of their Brew More Save More Sale.

Hands on Review: Ferroday Stainless Steel Carbonation Cap for PET Bottles & Draft Line Cleaning Builds

This is a hands on look at a Stainless Steel Carbonation Cap by Ferroday along with some information about what these are used for and some related build projects.

What are stainless steel carbonation caps used for?

  • PET Bottles as Growlers: These are generally intended to convert 1L and 2L bottles to growlers.  Fill up a 1L or 2L PET bottle with your favorite homebrew.  Put one of these on (purge the headspace by squeezing if you want to) and then pressurize for transport.  This should help to reduce oxygen pickup and maintain carbonation levels.
  • Fine tune or rapidly carbonate beer: You can also use this cap to rapidly carbonate beer.  Same process as for transport, just set your regulator to the proper pressure and shake or agitate the PET bottle to help introduce CO2.  Or hook it up to CO2 and let it sit in you kegerator.
  • Draft Line Cleaning Projects:  More recently these have been adapted, for use as a part of draft line cleaning projects.  Examples, using similar SS Caps – Build A Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump | Mark II Keg and Carboy Cleaner Draft Line Cleaning Pump Conversion

Universal Liquid and Gas Carbonation Caps

The really big question that needs to be answered, if you want to build a draft line cleaning setup using one of these, is whether or not it is universal.  Ball Lock Kegs have gas and liquid posts along with corresponding QDs.  Black goes on liquid, grey or white goes on gas.  They ARE NOT interchangeable.  The beauty of some stainless steel carbonation caps is that they are universal, meaning they can accept both gas and liquid QDs.  That’s very important for draft line cleaning builds because we want to connect a liquid QD to this.  The problem is, not all stainless steel carbonation caps are universal.

Compact Regulator for FULL Size CO2 Tanks + Portable Serving Options

Micro CO2 Mini Regulator Keg Charger for Standard Homebrew CGA320 Tanks (0-60 PSI)

Micro CO2 Mini Regulator Keg Charger for Standard Homebrew CGA320 Tanks (0-60 PSI) by The Weekend Brewer


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • PORTABLE. Keep dispensing pressure in your keg when you are away from home without bulky CO2 regulator. This system is more lightweight and keeps your mobile setup simple. A simple regulator + disconnect + CO2 tank is one of the simplest ways to keep dispensing pressure in your keg. Disconnect and tank not included.
  • EASY TO USE. Connect your homebrew CO2 tank, set the dial, and attach to your keg via a gas disconnect or gas line assembly. No need for an unwieldy dual gauge regulator when dispensing on the go. Using your existing CO2 tank is the most economical way of dispensing multiple kegs without the high cost of cartridges.
  • ACCURATE with a 0-45 PSI range makes dialing in the perfect dispense or force carbonation pressure for any size container easy. This regulator is also compatible with 3/8″ threaded CO2 cartridges without any extra equipment.
  • FLEXIBLE platform allows for a wide variety of setups with The Weekend Brewer mini regulator accessories. Use anything from disposable cartridges to paintball tanks for your input. Choose from threaded female, male threaded, or push in adapters for your output. Search Amazon for B079SGQMDY to find our accessories.
  • WHAT’S INCLUDED? 0-45 PSI micro CO2 regulator, pre-installed 3/8″ cartridge input adapter (removable), CGA320 input adapter, pre-installed 5/16″ barb output adapter (removable).

Notes from HBF:  Mini and Micro regulators have been out for a long time.  Those, generally, allow you to serve a keg using smaller 16 gram to 74 gram cartridges.  This micro regulator is different in that it’s designed to work with a full size co2 tank.  It saves you some bulk and weight compared to a full size regulator and negates the need for relatively expensive co2 cartridges.  Additional adapters are available to allow this to work with other CO2 sources.  See search link in the product description above.

I use a similar carbonation cap (different model, manufacturer and potentially different specs) in two line cleaning builds – Build A Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump | Mark II Keg and Carboy Cleaner Draft Line Cleaning Pump Conversion – Note: as of this posting, the description doesn’t specifically say this particular model works with both gas and liquid QDs, It does talk about line cleaning.  Check the product page for current description.
