Refurbished Pin Locks from $42.74

cornykeg.com pin lock keg deal

Good used pin locks have been hard to find…  When I started brewing pin locks were cheaper than ball locks, but that has changed. There’s been a real reversal in used keg pricing. Used pin locks have been tough to find in stock, especially at anything close to what I would call a good price. For example, see MoreBeer’s Pin Lock Offering. This is supply related. New pin lock kegs are not coming into the homebrewing market and we’ve finally hit an availability wall.

cornykeg.com has sourced hard to find refurbished pin lock kegs. Prices for these refurbishe kegs start at $42.74 each when you buy a four pack. Get them while you can!

Also Consider:

SCRATCH & DENT PEPSI STYLE BALL LOCK KEG

Scratch and Dent Ball Locks from cornykeg.com

These are refurbished ball lock Pepsi Style kegs with all new orings and a manual pull-ring relief valve. Photo shows example kegs, but are priced each.

As of this posting these are on sale for $42.95. Check site for current price & availability.

Every Ball Lock Cornelius Keg has a 5 gallon capacity and a rubber top and bottom.

The relief valves, poppets and gaskets on these used kegs are not replaced before shipping, but we sell all of these items separately if you’d like to replace them yourself at home (part numbers KEG540, KEG450 & KEG500). If you’re looking for a truly economical way to serve your beer at home, this Ball Lock Cornelius Keg is a great option.

Rebuilding & Reconditioning Homebrew Kegs + Limited Time DEAL

rebuild homebrew kegs

Updated: 5/3/2024

This post will walk you through rebuilding your homebrew keg, step by step.  From de-labeling to cleaning to replacing warn out parts.


Limited Time Deal on Keg Parts

valuebrew.com sale

For a short time, Valuebrew is discounting bulk food grade o-rings (including custom colors),

Valuebrew offers a lineup of food grade keg replacement o-rings in bulk quantities.  Most offerings are silicone or EPDM with one Buna-N option.  Everything they carry is food grade, more info below.  They have some unique offerings like bulk pin lock size post o-rings, replacement universal poppet o-rings, bulk internal QD o-rings and color coded Blue and Green post o-rings

Some of these offerings are detailed in our Keg Rebuild How-To

Save  an EXTRA 15% when you spend $30 or more on select items at Valuebrew.  This stacks on top of existing discounts. Includes…

Use coupon code vbdeal with an order of $30 or more to get the deal

The deal includes Valuebrew’s recently released yellow post o-rings

Valuebrew carries two color schemes to color keg posts. Doing this allows you to quickly identify keg posts. Gray and Black match standard keg QD colors. Blue and Green are meant to be remembered by “Blue for Beer” and “Green for Gas”. All options are made from FDA rated silicone. Since they work equally well on gas and liquid posts you can also mix and match to come up with your own color coding standard.



What Does Reconditioned/Rebuilt Mean?

The short answer is probably… nothing.  I think reconditioned/rebuilt/refurbished are basically synonyms and there is no standard definition for any of these terms.

Here are the different definitions I’ve seen from different retailers via their offerings:

The short answer is probably… nothing.  I think reconditioned/rebuilt/refurbished are basically synonyms and there is no standard definition for any of these terms.

Here are the different definitions I’ve seen from different retailers via their offerings:

  • The keg is untouched, but is in okay shape and holds pressure.  In this case, reconditioned means… the keg works.
  • The keg has had been tested and had faulty parts replaced.  In this case, reconditioned means, we did the minimum to get the keg working.
  • All o-rings have been replaced and any faulty parts have been replaced.  In this case, reconditioned means… reconditioned.
  • All o-rings have been replaced and any faulty parts have been replaced and the keg has been cleaned.  In this case reconditioned means reconditioned and cleaned.

Examples of Keg Conditions from MoreBeer

The takeaway is that it’s important to read descriptions when it comes to reconditioned/rebuilt/refurbished kegs.  The post walks through a complete rebuild process.

Pin Lock Keg Pricing Commentary…

There’s been a real reversal in used keg pricing. For example, see MoreBeer’s Pin Lock Offering.  I’m guessing this is related to availability. New pin lock kegs are not coming into the homebrewing market and we’ve finally hit an availability wall. Along those lines, this is the best deal I’m aware of for a pin lock keg. If you’re a devoted pin lock user, now is the time to pick some up.

Recommendation: Now is the time to buy kegs, especially pin locks

Considering the current climate, if you’re a pin lock user. I think now is the time to stock up. Things have been getting consistently worse and worse on the pin lock front. The same has been generally true for ball lock kegs, but the process has been slower than pin locks.

Use Goo Gone to Remove Old Adhesive From Kegs

Used Kegs often have old stickers. After removing these we’re often left with sticky, hard to remove adhesive.  Goo Gone to the rescue!

In my experience, Goo Gone is harsh on my skin so I’m using nitrile gloves.  Glove are… handy.  Did you see what I did there? 🙂  I just work my way around the keg a few times.  That gives the Goo Gone a chance to chemically break down the adhesive while I provide some periodic agitation.  In this case the adhesive dissolved pretty quickly and the small pieces of sticker that were left came right off.  TIP: I recommend using Goo Gone sparingly.  You really don’t need that much and you certainly WOULD NOT want to use enough that it gets on the handle or base of your keg.  Goo Gone acts as a solvent for many adhesives.  It could potentially loosen up rubber handles or bases.  Then you’d need to use our Fixing Loose Handles Tip.  So, just put a little on a paper towel or rag and add a little more if you need to.A look at the used paper towel with dirt, adhesive residue and small bits of stickers on it.  Whammo!

Search Amazon for “Goo Gone” to shop around for available options

This write-up is part of my post on rebuilding kegsJump To This Section – If you look through the post you’ll see just how good the keg looks at the end.
