Announcing: Color Coded Keg Post O-Rings In Bulk!

color coded keg orings

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.

Ball Lock Keg O-Rings vs Pin Lock Keg O-Rings – are they the same?

pin lock oringsPin Lock Post O-Ring on Left, Ball Lock Post O-Ring on Right

Ball Lock vs Pin Lock O-Rings

When it comes to ball lock and pin lock o-rings, some are the same.  Standard pin locks and ball locks use identical dip tube o-rings and lid o-rings

Post o-rings are a different storyStandard pin lock keg post o-rings are slightly larger than ball lock keg post o-rings

It may be difficult to see in these photos, but the left side shows a pin lock post with a ball lock o-ring installed.  The right side shows a pin lock post with the pin lock o-ring installed .  The pin lock o-ring extends out just a little bit further than the ball lock o-ring.  The ball lock o-ring is nearly flush the the lip on the post.  That small amount is the difference between the two o-rings.

Problems with Sourcing Pin Lock Post O-Rings

Most resellers stock one model of post o-ring… ball lock post o-rings.  They sell the same size for both kegs.  Even though they’re a different size, ball lock post o-rings will stretch enough to fit on a pin lock post.  They do fit, but are finicky.  Worst case, you’re going to lose a tank of CO2.  That’s going to cause you to have to lug your tank to your CO2 provider, which is a waste of time and money, not to mention frustrating.

All that to say, it’s tough to even find pin lock post o-rings at all, let alone find them in bulk and in food safe materials.

Valuebrew stocks Pin Lock Post O-Rings in food grade silicone in bulk quantities.

Why You Should Stock Up

I recommend stocking up on spare o-rings.  This is especially true for post o-rings.  In my opinion you should be changing those liberally.  My recommendation is every other batch.  This is a part that costs a few cents.  It’s also a spot that is tough to check for leaks and a faulty o-ring, which happens regularly in my experience, can cause problems like carbonation issues and loss of CO2.  Before figuring out this problem I lost two tanks of CO2, back to back.  That’s lost time, frustration and a waste of money.  I suggest keeping a stock of spare keg, QD and Universal Poppet o-rings.
