Brand New Italian Made Keg Lids… $14.95!

New Italian Lid for Cornelius or Firestone Kegs via Keg Connection

In most cases, Pin lock and ball lock cornelius style keg lids are interchangeable from a size perspective.  That means you can, generally speaking, put a pepsi/ball lock style (manual prv) lid on a coke/pin lock style (no manual prv) keg.  In my book, that’s a solid upgrade.  See: What’s the Difference Between Ball Lock Kegs and Pin Lock Kegs?

Limited Quantities: 10 and 15 Gallon Torpedo Ball Lock Kegs! + Hands on Review

 New 10 & 15 Gal. Torpedo Kegs!

New 10 & 15 Gal. Torpedo Kegs!

From MoreBeer:

Look out below! The Torpedo Keg Depth Charge series just dropped and they’re set to send blast waves through the homebrew world. Large-scale homebrewers will appreciate the ability to fit their entire batch into a single 10 or 15 gallon ball lock keg, and you can expect the same great features that have made Torpedo Kegs such a hit. Laser welded construction for superior quality, rolled stainless steel handles that will last a lifetime, and stackable design that won’t interfere with your fittings.

To learn more and order your Torpedo Kegs, click here


Thoughts from HBF: This is a great entry into the homebrewing keg market.  Larger 10 and 15 gallon kegs are tough to find and even more difficult to find at a reasonable price.  The current prices, $219 for a 15 gallon keg and $199 for a 10 gallon keg are.. bargains, especially considering that they ship for free to many US addresses.  Beyond kegging larger homebrew batches these can be used as fermenters.

Update:  MoreBeer fully expects to sell out of this first batch relatively soon.  More will be on the way, but, it will take some time.  I’ve you’ve been thinking about picking one or more of these up, my suggestion is to do it sooner rather than later.

Hands on Review!  Check our my in depth Hands on Review of the 10 gallon version of this keg.

Ball Lock Keg QD Jumper Post [Clean Draft Lines + Draft Line Cleaning Pump Build] – $5.99

BALL LOCK KEG QD JUMPER POST FOR CLEANING

via Brew Hardware.  This custom fitting is designed to allow you to connect two ball lock QDs together for the purpose of cleaning your draft lines more quickly and easily.


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

New and improved version of this fitting is much easier to connect than previous stock. We’ve moved the locking groove closer to the ends so the poppet in your QD doesn’t have to compress as much.

Maybe this is a strange idea but that’s how we roll. This custom made fitting allows you to connect a liquid or gas ball lock coupler/disconnect to both sides. It’s made so that the poppet is depressed to get full flow through both lines. Why?
If you’ve got a multiple faucet kegerator, you’re probably used to cleaning your lines one tap at a time. There are a lot of different ways to run cleaner through the lines whether it be pumping, or maybe even dispensing BLC or other cleaners through by pressurizing a spare keg. The BEST way to clean lines is to use a pump because cleaner in motion works better than static. Here’s how we do it. We use a chugger pump fed from a spare pot or cooler and the output of the pump goes into the first faucet (simply clamp the hose on to the nozzle). The serving line goes to this ball lock jumper fitting, then into the serving line of the next faucet. On the outside of this faucet you can either run it back into your cleaner reservoir or continue to daisy chain to as many faucets as you have. Please note that if you have the faucet style where the piston sticks out of the front of the faucet, you can’t do this because it will leak at that spot.

The beauty of this method is that you don’t have to take your disconnects off the lines or take them apart for cleaning. The cleaner goes through everything. You can also use it with only one QD attached which would then just hold the poppet open for you.

This item is JUST the doubled ended jumper post fitting with two included ORINGS as seen in the picture (may be red or black). We only show the ball lock QD in the second picture to show application at a glance.”


HBF Reader [8 Ways to Connect with HBF] Josh Says: “I use two of these, along with my Mark II Keg Washer, and silicone tubing between my Perlick faucets, to make a loop through all three of my taps in order to recirculate BLC for a good 30 – 60 minutes. Works great!”

Availability of these is touch and go.  Brew Hardware gets a supply in stock and then they sell our in relatively short order.  This is usually followed by a long period of unavailability.  As of this posting, they’re back in stock and marked down to $5.99  Shipping is a Flat $7.99 with a $150 order or free with a $299 order.  Check product page for current availability.

Brand New Replacement Ball Lock Corny Keg Lids – for ball & pin lock kegs – $12.99 + free shipping!

New Replacement Corny Keg (Soda Keg) Lid Cornelius Homebrew Beer Stainless Steel

Replacement Corny Keg Lids. with pull ring PRV.  Pull ring PRV means these have manual PRV valves.  This (in my opinion) is better than pin lock style lids that generally do not have manual PRVs.  Manual PRVs allow you to easily vent the keg.

More Info

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

Specification:

  • Brand new
  • Material: 316 stainless steel
  • Type: new oval keg lid with O-ring
  • Color: silver, as picture shows
  • Size: approx. 118 x 118 x 36mm
  • This universal replacement lid for soda kegs (corny kegs) is completely new–not refurbished.
  • It fits all ball-lock and pin-lock soda kegs that require the standard oval lid.(does not fit “racetrack” style kegs).
  • It has a replaceable pressure relief valve and includes the NEW rubber O-ring.
  • Replace your old bent, dented, or leaking lids

Package included:

  • 1 x keg lid (including a pressure relief valve and a lid O-ring)

 

In most cases, Pin lock and ball lock cornelius style keg lids are interchangeable from a size perspective.  That means you can, generally speaking, put a pepsi/ball lock style (manual prv) lid on a coke/pin lock style (no manual prv) keg.  In my book, that’s a solid upgrade.  See: What’s the Difference Between Ball Lock Kegs and Pin Lock Kegs?

Announcing: Stainless Steel Flow Control Ball Lock Disconnects – now available at MoreBeer

Flow Control Ball Lock Disconnect Beverage Out - Flare KEG742
Flow Control Ball Lock Disconnect Beverage Out – Flare via MoreBeer

More Info

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

Pick up this Flow Control Ball Lock Disconnect and stop banging your head against the wall trying to balance your draft line. We’re all after the same thing — the perfect pour — but balancing beer lines can be a daunting task. You do the research and crunch the numbers, choose the right inner diameter line, cut it to the ideal length, only to spend your evenings dialing your regulator setting back and forth like a turtle-necked safecracker. This stainless steel flow control disconnect will eliminate the guess work and fast track you to perfectly pouring beer.

Flow control faucets are a popular option but they’re inherently flawed due to the point of restriction being at the very end of the beer line. The flow control apparatus inside the faucet causes turbulence, which leads to foaming and carbonation coming out of solution prematurely. Flow control disconnects on the other hand have the ability to restrict the flow before the beer enters the beer line so the head pressure created by the beer line keeps the carbonation in solution.

Another advantage of FC disconnects is that you don’t have to rely on a small inner diameter or long line length to apply flow resistance. In fact, even in the fully open position, the disconnect will provide some inherent flow resistance, so you should use a shorter line than the 5-6 ft. length that is typically recommended. This makes the flow control disconnect ideal for dispensing beer on the go where you might have a picnic tap with a short line or a disconnect faucet adapter with no line at all!


 

These ball lock QDs are made from stainless steel.  Beyond that they also have a unique feature that allows you to change the resistance that the QD is exerting on your beer.  That means you can dial in flow right at the QD.  That allows you to make modifications for lower or higher carbonation levels without changing tubing lengths.
