FDA Rated EPDM O-Rings – Low Permeability, Less Oxygen & Off-Flavors – Limited Time Deal on Dip Tube Options

A while back Valuebrew announced the availability of bulk EPDM o-rings for homebrewers.  EPDM is a favorite of many pro brewers for certain applications. Until now, these have not been available to homebrewers, or at least easily available. EPDM has some real advantages over silicone. One of the big ones is a much lower permeability. That means they seal better and since they’re less porous they are more resistant to absorbing off-smells and off-flavors.

They are FDA Rated for food use and NSF61 certified. As of this posting, post, dip tube, lid and internal QD options are available in 10, 25 and 50 count options. Valuebrew has struggled mightily with availability and they’ve already made some indications of potential issues with new EPDM offerings. In particular, the lid o-ring description says they received a small shipment.

Valuebrew has struggled keeping many of their offerings in stock. Some of their EPDM options had sold out. As of this posting, all options are back in stock. Check site to see if you can get in on this order.

For a limited time, save on dip tube o-rings

From Valuebrew… Limited Time Deal: EPDM options cost us more, that’s why we need to charge more compared to our silicone options. We worked with our supplier and got a great deal on EPDM dip tube o-rings and we’re going to pass that savings on to you. For a limited time we’ve marked our EPDM dip tube o-rings to match our silicone dip tube o-rings.

FDA Rated EPDM O-Rings!

More about food safe materials:

For whatever reason, it’s difficult to find food safe keg o-rings.  Maybe some of the o-rings that are available are food safe, but very few are actually labeled as such.

The fact is we’re putting beer (food) in our kegs and we should be using food safe materials whenever we can.  More Info: Food Safe Replacement Keg O-Rings

Back In Stock (and shipping)… Blue Color Coded Post O-Rings “Blue for Beer, Green for Gas”

Custom Color Keg Post O-Rings from Valuebrew:

A Valuebrew Exclusive! We commissioned the production of these custom color o-rings in the same food grade silicone we use for our other premium quality replacement o-rings. We picked the color and placed a massive order to be able to offer you these in bulk quantities at the same price as our other high quality post o-rings.

These can be used for either post. A suggestion we have is to color code your posts Blue for Beer and Green for Gas. This way you’ll immediately be able to tell which post is which. Plus your keg will look awesome!

These are sized to work with standard Ball Lock Cornelius style homebrew kegs. If you’re a Pin Lock keg user, they’ll also work. We recommend using your choice of colors (Blue or Green) on your Pin Lock keg liquid post and our Pin Lock Keg Post O-Rings on the gas post


  • These are available in bulk quantities.  Price varies based on quantity,
  • Compare: Keg Fitting O-Rings at William’s Brewing – multiple color options at 49 cents per o-ring.   No mention of material or food grade materials.
  • Availability of these have been touch and go.  The last couple days all bulk keg o-rings were unavailable.  As of this posting, everything is available again.  Check site for current availability.
  • The Blue have been sold out for a while now. They came back in stock for pre-order a few days back. As of this posting, they’re back in stock and shipping. Check the product page to see if you can get in on this shipment.
