Reader Photos: Brand New, NSF Approved Ball Lock Keg – $84.99 + Feedback

Thanks to Twitter Follower @zip100473 for these photos and feedback! Connect with HBF on Twitter - Here

Zip picked up a couple of these brand new kegs from RiteBrew.  He said they are “Beautiful” and tweeted me a few pictures.  

These Brand New, NSF Approved, 5 Gallon Ball Lock Kegs are selling for $84.99.  That’s the second lowest price we’ve seen on Homebrew Finds for a brand new ball lock keg.  Probably the lowest price ever on an NSF Approved Keg.  This is a great deal for a brand new keg.

    Thanks to HBF Reader Scott for this tip and picture!


    From ScottAfter looking at the $50 version I made some of my own with window screen as a test. They worked but tended to collapse and were difficult to clean.  Then I found this on Amazon.  After working a hole in it large enough to push the drain tube through bingo. It’s stiff, large enough around that it won’t clog easily and it comes apart for cleaning.  Best of all it was $11 with free shipping.  Here is a photo of it installed in a 10 gal. kettle…

      Reader Photo: Steel Shelving For Brew Day

      Thanks to HBF Reader Curtis for this photo.  Curtis sent this to me in response to yesterday’s post on a price drop on this shelving unit.

      From Curtis: “Here’s another pic of a shelf set up. I have it set up so I can brew on there with a full gravity system and keggle for boil. It holds the hot liquor and mash as well as most everything I need to brew and a couple hundred bottles. I had to get fancy with the bracing to get the coolers to fit but it works really nicely.”
