We know some homebrewers are more picky than others, so please keep in mind that these are USED kegs. Some of these kegs are probably 30 years old. Do not expect new kegs. If you are looking for new kegs, please check out our new kegs. We try and have quality kegs available at all times. With this said, they are going to show normal wear and tear. We are not implying that our kegs are not quality…we just want to avoid any misunderstandings.

*Cornelius is a Brand Name of a keg. “Cornelius Style” simply refers to the type of keg. There are several manufacturers that make these kegs and we only guarantee that you will receive a Pin Lock Keg. We do not guarantee the brand name of the keg you may receive. Firestone and Cornelius are the primary brands but we have seen Safer, Hoover, and AEB kegs that have also been pin locks.

If you are unhappy with your used kegs for any reason, we will gladly take them back. The purchaser will be responsible for return shipping charges.


 

That makes these kegs $175.99 or just $44 each. In the current environment (see commentary below) this is a a great deal for pin locks.

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.

Replacement Keg Corny Keg Lid – works with Ball Lock & Pin Lock – $17.20 + free prime ship

Replacement Corny Keg Lid

More Info
Highlighted Features
  • Sealed Perfect: With New O-ring & 304 SS Pressure Relief Valve, can hold pressure without leaks.
  • Easy to Install & Use: Large handle makes installation easier; labor-saving design of safety relief valve, no need to keep lifting when deflated, just lift once and rotate 90° to continuously deflate.
  • Quality Guarantee: All keg lids are tested before delivery to ensure performance and reliability.
  • After-sales Satisfaction: one-year warranty, lifetime maintenance (not including O-rings)
  • More Sturdy: Made of 304 stainless steel

 

One difference between Pin Lock and Ball Lock kegs is the type of lids that come with each.  Ball Locks, generally, have a manual PRV valve, while Pin Locks do not.  Ball Lock style lids are, in my opinion, superior because the manual PRV allows you to easily vent your keg as needed.  The good news is that, for standard kegs, the lids are the same size and can be interchanged.  That means you can use a Ball Lock style lid in a Pin Lock Keg.  See: What’s the Difference Between Ball Lock Kegs and Pin Lock Kegs?

In Stock + Coupon… Universal Poppets – 304 Stainless + Food Grade Silicone & Reliable O-Ring Replacements

universal poppets

Universal Poppets via Valuebrew

More Info

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

A Valuebrew Exclusive! Stainless Steel Universal Replacement Poppets with our Food Safe Silicone O-Rings.

These work with all standard Ball Lock and Pin Lock homebrew kegs.

Ever wonder what other universal poppet o-rings are made of? Us too, after all this is one of the most high contact o-rings in you draft beer setup. We took matters into our own hands and worked with our suppliers to source a 304 Stainless Steel + Food Grade Silicone option. Stainless steel construction on all the metal parts and premium quality food grade silicone for the o-ring.

Our pledge to you… Let’s face it, the stainless pieces in most universal replacement poppets should last a long, long time. How about the o-rings? Not so much… lost, broken, cracked, off smell. This is where our pledge comes in… we’ll always carry replacement o-rings for these universal poppets. No need to guess what size replacements to buy or completely replace your universal poppets because you don’t have a reliable source for replacements.


 

I use universal style poppets exclusively when rebuilding kegs. Finding the right OEM specific replacement poppets can be a chore. Beyond finding the right part number, these can be prohibitively expensive. Paying $10 to $14, or more, for an OEM poppet isn’t fun. In fact, if you really had to pay that, it may not even make sense to keep the keg.

I’ve long advocated to tossing OEM o-rings immediately. You don’t know what they’re made of, and you can’t get replacements. Replacing them immediately with a known quality o-ring and known part number before trimming to fit means you’ll be using the right materials and have a source for replacements.  See: Universal Poppet Tips & Tricks

Well… finally there’s an option that comes with quality o-rings made from the right materials out of the box!  Beyond that, Valuebrew has pledged to always carry replacement o-rings, so you’ll always have a source when the time comes for replacements.  Available in 5 and 10 packs with the option to add on a pack of replacement o-rings.

  • Valuebrew has struggled to keep these in stock.
  • They’ve sold out multiple times, sometimes for several weeks at a time.
  • As of this posting, they’ve been sold out for quite some time.
