MoreBeer’s Ball Lock Kegs Explained

MoreBeer has a bunch of ball lock keg options both new an used.  Most of those are self explanatory, but the used offerings can be a bit confusing.

A look at the keg.  It looks quite good.  Dirty, stickers still on it, but overall it’s in really good condition.Top down view


Rebuild It!

The keg offering featured in this review is the same keg featured in our step by step keg rebuilding and reconditioning how-to.


Should I buy a New Keg or a Used Keg?

Used kegs are generally sourced from soda bottlers.  They are built with commercial use in mind and designed to last for many years of rough duty service.

Brand new ball locks may not be made to the same standards.  However… We also don’t generally put our kegs through the same abuse that a soda distributor would.

Not withstanding price.  I think both options are valid.  If you’re up for a little elbow grease and replacing a few parts, used may be the way to go, if you’re more interested in convenience brand new is a good choice.  Practically, at least as of this posting, I think price will cause many to go the used route.
