Adventures in Homebrewing recently-ish introduced a brand new 5 gallon ball lock keg. Check it out – Here. They recently put those on sale for… $75. That’s a stellar deal for a brand new ball lock, so I… picked one up. These are stainless steel and in the process of being NSF Certified. Although, this first run did not get the stamp – guessing that may be why they’re clearing these out at $75.
Ball Lock, Stainless Steel, Double Rubber Handles. Specs say these are 25″ tall and 8.5″ in diameter.
Here’s a first look…
A look at the top of the keg
Stamp on the side of the side of the keg reads… Max WP 130 PSI [900 kpa], Cap 5 US GAL . Guessing WP = working pressure,
Bottom of the keg
There was a little bit of what I would call rubber residue. Not a lot, but some. Guessing this will wear or scrub off. Maybe this is common for brand new kegs, I’ve never owned one before this.
Inside of the keg. Looks great.
Parts and pieces. Left side is liquid, right side is gas. The lid oring is white. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s a white silicone. It doesn’t feel like Buna-N.

The keg uses universal style poppets.

I’ve just had this keg part of today. First Impressions are great. I’ll say at this point, that this is the nicest 5 gallon keg I’ve owned. At it’s current sale price of $75, I’d call it a stellar value. Shipping is additional. Play around with different quantities as minimum shipping charges make those costs a bit odd. It usually doesn’t cost much more to ship a second, third or forth keg.
From Facebook Friend Michael… “Have one from their Black Friday sale and am very happy with it. It’s a Steal!”
