Replacing Keg O-Rings
When you get a used keg, in my opinion, you’re going to want to replace all the o-rings in your keg. Generally speaking they are going to be worn out and even if they aren’t they’ll smell of soda pre-mix. Beyond that, who knows what they’re made from. Start with a clean slate. As you saw earlier, the o-rings in this keg were a grubby mismatch of soda drenched o-rings.
Most of these o-rings are pennies each when bought in reasonable bulk quantities. It’s worth the small cost to start fresh with o-rings made from appropriate materials.
