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.

If you are unhappy with your used 5 Gallon Cornelius Kegs for any reason, we will gladly take them back. The purchaser will be responsible for return shipping charges.

5 Gallon Single Handle Cornelius Keg, Ball Lock (Used) – $40 each when you use coupon code SUPER20

For these kegs, shipping is calculated based on where you live. For me the shipping sweet spot is four kegs. Four kegs figures to just $5.59 hipping per keg. Three kegs is pretty close at $6.79 per keg shipping.

  • 1 keg – $17.63, $17.63 per keg shipping
  • 2 kegs – $18.32, $9.16 per keg shipping
  • 3 kegs, $20.38, $6.79 per keg shipping
  • 4 kegs – $22.36, $5.59 per keg shipping
  • 5 kegs – $41.82…. $8.36 per keg (per keg shipping costs go up!)

These costs are for me. This will vary based on location.

OR…

By the time you factor in shipping, you may be better off with the double handle options, since they qualify for free shipping.

Ends Soon: 20% Off Pin Lock Kegs + I believe bulk quantities of pin lock kegs are running out

Pin Lock Keg (Used) – 5 gallon via Adventures in Homebrewing

More Info

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

Pin lock kegs are 5 gallon stainless steel kegs. They utilize pins on the air and liquid posts to lock the disconnects in place. All kegs are pressure tested and work. Since they are used, the outside of a keg may have minor dings and scratches.

Pin lock kegs require pin lock disconnects. Ball lock disconnects are not compatible. Pin lock kegs do not have pressure release valves. The air post poppet can be depressed to relieve pressure.

It is a good idea to have a spare set of replacement o-rings always on hand, with some keg o-ring lubricant. Lubricating the o-rings will help to make them last longer, but eventually they will become brittle and have to be replaced.

Dimensions: 22.25″ tall x 9.25″ diameter (56.5 cm x 23.5 cm).


 

It’s my guess that bulk used pin lock availability has become a real issue. See: Are Used Kegs Running Out??

If you’re a pin lock user, I would suggest stocking up on kegs sooner rather than later.

AIH has single pin locks for $59.99. The four pack is selling for $219.99. Ball lock kegs have recently gone up at AIH, pin locks haven’t yet.

Save 20%!

Hands on Review: Torpedo 10 Gallon Ball Lock Homebrew Kegs!

Larger 10 and 15 gallon homebrew kegs have been very hard to find… for years.  There have been a couple sources, eBay was a best bet, but that was touch and go at best.  When you could find one, prices were… outrageous.  $300++ for a used 10 gallon keg would not be uncommon.  Again, that’s IF you could find one.

Great news homebrewers…. MoreBeer has introduced 10 and 15 gallon homebrew ball lock kegs via their Torpedo line of kegs and accessories.  These are BRAND NEW kegs that are (hopefully) readily available at a reasonable price.

Why a larger 10 or 15 gallon homebrew keg?

The first and most obvious answer is for large batch brewers.  If you brew 10 or 15 gallon batches, it sure would be nice to have a keg that fits your entire batch.  Even if you don’t brew 10 gallons, you may want to brew a couple 5 gallon batches of the same beer (much like professional brewers do) and keg it in a single keg.

A less obvious answer to the question is… to use as a fermenter.  Kegs are well-built stainless steel vessels that are pressure capable.  You can easily move them around and they are built to be bumped around a bit.  Using a keg opens up some really interesting possibilities…. fermenting under pressure with a Spunding Valve [See: Build a Spunding Valve! – How and Why], naturally carbonating in the fermenter/Krausening (again with the aid of a Spunding Valve), transferring under pressure, oxygen-free (or near oxygen-free) transfers, re-purposing expelled CO2 and more.

A third application is similar to the second… Use as a UniVessel.  Ferment and serve in the same vessel.  Save time and simplify your process.
