Home Brew Keg Roundup – New & Used, 5 and 2.5 Gallon & More!

homebrew kegsPictured: Used 5 Gallon Ball Lock Keg via Adventures in Homebrewing

The containers we call Ball Lock and Pin Lock Kegs come from the soda industry. Also called Cornelius Kegs, Corny Kegs and Corney Kegs, they were originally intended to store and distribute soda pre-mix. The big soda companies decided on different style containers for their pre-mix. Pepsi landed on the Ball Lock style while Coke uses the Pin Lock style.

Homebrewers have since re-purposed these as homebrew beer kegs.

Kegs are available in ball lock and pin lock variations in a a variety of sizes.

Here’s a roundup of some of the best available sources for homebrew kegs along with some comparisons on types of kegs, features and benefits and a list of suppliers.

5 Gallon Ball Lock Cornelius Kegs – Back at $39.99! AND Free Ship Eligible + Reader Photo

ball lock keg deal

Used five gallon ball lock Cornelius keg from MoreBeer

More Info

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

A great price on an non-rebuilt Cornelius keg. You can purchase the rebuild kit and replace the gaskets yourself (very easy job) to save some money. These Cornelius kegs could have residual soda syrup inside and will need to be cleaned. To totally rebuild the keg you should also consider a new relief valve and poppets (part number listed below). PBW works as a great cleaner for eating away sticky residual soda residue. Kegs are sold “as is”.

The body connnects on a keg are the metal posts where the quick disconnects attach too. They should be removed for cleaning and sanitizing before each use. Kegs can come with either 11/16″ body connects or 7/8″ body connects. We sell deep sockets for the removal of either one. So if you do not have these sockets at home and want to make sure you can disassemble these Cornelius kegs you may want to purchase both sockets below. Then you will always be covered as your keg collection grows.

If you want a great deal on a 4 pack of kegs, check out our KEG430A.

Beautiful Ball Lock Kegs from $35!

5 Gallon Cornelius Keg, Ball Lock (Used)

Used 5 Gallon Cornelius Style Ball Lock Kegs via Adventures in Homebrewing

More Info

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

Pressure tested 5 gallon, stainless steel, cornelius style tank. These tanks are guaranteed to hold pressure. 25″ tall and 8.5″ diameter. Tanks will show normal wear and tear. May have stickers on kegs. May also have syrup residue in tanks as we only dump them.

Kegs include the o-rings and poppits that were installed when we received the tanks. We will often change an o-ring or poppit to get the tank to hold pressure. If you would like to have new o-rings or poppits, the options below allow you to add these. We do not change them but simply add them to the order.

If you are just getting into kegging you will need a kegging setup to go with these kegs. We sell picnic tap systems, tower systems, and kegerator systems.

We know some homebrewers are more picky than others, so please keep in mind that these are USED kegs. Some of these kegs are probably 30 years old. Do not expect new kegs. If you are looking for new kegs, please check out our new kegs. We try and have quality kegs available at all times. With this said, they are going to show normal wear and tear. We try not to purchase from Pepsi or Coke to avoid heavily used kegs. We are not implying that our kegs are not quality…we just want to avoid any misunderstandings. Most of the kegs have black protective tops and bottoms, some are blue. We may have a few green, red or yellow tops. If you want a particular color, please indicate that at checkout time and we will try to accommodate you.
