Grains by the lb can generally be had for a reasonable price. They also generally qualify for free and flat rate shipping when a retailer offers that.  Full 50 or 55 lb sacks of malt are another story altogether. The per lb price of sacks can be tempting, but shipping charges can be confiscatory.

Hands on Review: Kegco 1 Gallon Ball Lock Kegs!

Why Smaller Kegs?

Smaller kegs are good for small space kegging, splitting batches (easily try a variation of your larger batch), small batch brewers and for easily serving on the go.  Since this is smaller than most small kegs (usually 2.5 to 3 gallons), you could also use it to push cleaning and sanitizing solution without wasting a lot of CO2 pressurizing head space.

I bought this particular keg up because of it’s small size. It’s essentially a large growler. Because it’s ball lock, all the existing gear I have is compatible.

Hands on Review 1 Gallon Kegco Ball Lock Keg

A look at the kegDetails are stamped on the side. P/N KCAB1G-SH, Capacity 1.32 US Gallons/5 Liters. Material SS 304. AEB Made in Italy.  I’m actually quite surprised and pleased that this is actually made by AEB in Italy. I’ll make the general statement that I believe AEB kegs, made in Italy, are some of the best kegs around.  This is a unique size. 2.5 and 3 gallon kegs have been around for quite some time, I’ve even seen 1.75 gallon kegs. 1 gallon kegs are uncommon.
