FLOTit 2.0 Stainless Steel Floating Dip Tube | NO BEER LEFT BEHIND

Check out our In Depth Hands on Review of FLOTit 2.0

My explanation of how this works…

When we carbonate a keg, pressure is being applied to the keg from the top, via the head space. Beer at the top carbonates first. That carbonation works it’s way down the keg. I’m sure there’s also some movement in the keg that helps to mix things up and distribute carbonation. But just sitting there, I think that mixing is a slow process. However it all works, practically speaking, the beer at the top carbonates more quickly compared to the beer at the bottom. This allows you to serve from the top accessing the more carbonated portion of the keg. It’s also a benefit for clarity because trub settles out heading downward. You can see this stratification in a glass carboy. As the beer starts to clear, the top clears first. I don’t think if this is exactly accurate, but I picture carbonation happening with the same sort of stratification until the beer reaches equilibrium and is equally carbonated throughout.

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.

Corny Keg Lid, Oval Ball Lock Keg Attachment, Cornelius Tri-Clamp Keg Lid with 1.5″ TC Ferrule, Attach Dry Hopper, Stainless Steel Sanitary Fitting, for Homebrew, Beer Kegging, Dry-Hopping

More Info
Highlighted Features
  • 🍺Perfect for brewing and dry-hopping: Use the 1.5" TC ferrule of this oval keg fitting as a port, for example, to easily add hops to secondary fermentation by connecting a dry hopper. The welded flange also allows for the attachment of other TC fittings like elbow tubes, sight windows, or clamp tees – take your homebrewing setup to the next level!
  • 🍺Fits Corny kegs snugly: Made of 304 stainless steel and equipped with a strong, thick silicone gasket, this replacement lid fits snugly onto any kind of homebrew, ball lock, or soda keg that boasts an oval opening.
  • 🍺Easy installation: Installing this replacement cap is as easy as drinking beer: Simply slide the Cornelius keg lid into the opening of your beer or soda keg and push down the lid clamp – no screwdriver or wrench necessary.
  • 🍺Avoid excess pressure: For your safety and to avoid excess pressure, this keg cover comes with an integrated pressure relief valve. Simply pull out the valve ring and the gas inside the keg will escape immediately. Also, if the pressure exceeds 60 PSI the valve will release gas automatically.
  • 🍺Get a spare O-ring: It is common for gaskets to get damaged after a while due to the constant pressure they are under. Thankfully, this set includes a spare tri-clamp silicone washer which you can use as a replacement to prevent any leaks around your TC connections.

 

This can be used to convert a compatible Cornelius style keg to Tri-Clamp. That has a number of potential applications including using for dry hopping. See the project below for more on that.

homebrew keg deal5 Gallon Cornelius Keg, Ball Lock (Used)

More Info

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

Used & Tested, Ball Lock Keg, With Pressure Relief Valve
Used & Pressure Tested – Ball Lock – Includes Pressure Relief Valve Lid

Cleaned and pressure tested 5 gallon, stainless steel, cornelius style tank. These tanks are guaranteed to hold pressure. 25″ tall and 8.5″ diameter. Tanks will show normal wear and tear.

Kegs include the o-rings and poppits that were installed when we received the tanks. We will often change an o-ring or poppit to get the tank to hold pressure. Grab new o-rings and poppits here if you’d like.

If you are just getting into kegging you will need a kegging setup to go with these kegs. We sell keg systems and have a whole lot more kegging options.

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. 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.

If you are unhappy with your used 5 Gallon Cornelius Kegs for any reason, we will gladly take them back. The purchaser will be responsible for return shipping charges.


 

  • According to my notes, these went out of stock in August of 2023. To the point that the product page was completely removed.
  • They came back in stock (at full price) recently
  • For a short time they are on sale for $59.98 as part of a flash sale.

Recommendation: Now is the time to buy pin lock kegs

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.

pin lock oringsPIN LOCK Post O-Rings!

Pin Lock users are regularly left out when it comes to parts and accessories.  Point in case… I am aware of very few offerings for pin lock post o-rings (0 offerings in bulk).  Most shops sell the same o-ring for both ball and pin lock posts.  Pin lock post o-rings are larger than ball lock post o-rings.

From Valuebrew:

“Pin Lockers Rejoice! We’re excited to announce we have sourced Pin Lock Post O-Rings made from FDA Silicone! You can finally buy Pin Lock specific o-rings in food safe materials… in bulk quantities.”

New Pin Lock Kegs are Finally Available!

new pin lock kegsThe availability of of used kegs has recently become an issue. See: Are Used Kegs Running Out?

This has been especially true of pin lock kegs, because new pin locks have not been coming on the market. To my knowledge no new pin lock offering was generally available to homebrewers. This has caused the price and availability of pin locks to be a serious issue. For example, MoreBeer’s Pin Lock offering has sky-rocketed to $85 per keg.

Well, today is a happy day… Announcing NEW Pin Lock Kegs from cornyieg.com

18+ Liter Ball Lock Keg | Fully Remanufactured (AEB/SAFER/Cornelius) | SEE DESCRIPTION

18+ Liter Ball Lock Keg | Fully Remanufactured (AEB/SAFER/Cornelius) | SEE DESCRIPTION

More Info

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

18+ Liter Ball Lock Keg | Fully Remanufactured (AEB/SAFER/Cornelius)
These are top-tier, refurbished Corny kegs made of stainless steel. With stainless steel costs climbing and high-quality used kegs becoming increasingly scarce, this is an offer you won’t want to overlook.

Every keg in our collection undergoes a comprehensive refurbishment process. This includes deep cleaning, machine polishing, and the replacement of o-rings on the lid, PRV, as well as liquid and gas dip tubes, in addition to two o-rings on each post. These kegs are all sourced from elite brands, including AEB, SAFER, and CORNELIUS.

Additional Information on Our Refurbished Kegs:
Though these kegs are pre-owned, they may exhibit minor cosmetic imperfections such as small dings and scratches that couldn’t be completely polished away. None of these issues impact their functionality.

After the cleaning and polishing operations, some residue might be present on either the keg’s exterior or its rubber components. While it may transfer onto your hands, this is merely a reminder that all kegs—whether new or used—need to be meticulously cleaned before usage. Proper sanitization is also crucial before filling them with any beverage.

A subset of these kegs has experienced sun damage to the rubber areas, affecting the seal. This could lead to the formation of black marks, particularly when the rubber is wet, although this is less likely when it’s dry.

Lastly, you might find some kegs with double o-rings on their posts. While this may appear out of the ordinary, rest assured they function as effectively as those with single o-rings.

Diameter: 8-7/8″ (225mm)
Height: 22-1/4″ (565mm)
Weight: 9 lbs 9oz (4.34kg)
Volume: 4.75 gallons (18 liters) but some are also slightly more in full volume
Post Thread Size: 9/16-18 UNF Thread on both the IN and Out.


 

The fact is… the era of cheap and readily available used homebrew kegs is… done. I could give you a bunch of reasoning behind that opinion including one of the best sources for used kegs… de-listing used kegs, but I’ve got a regularly updated article on the topic you can check out.

Keg Connection Says…

“People have been receiving these new PREMIUM REMANUFACTURED KEGS and already love them! That’s because there hasn’t been a used keg on the market in this good of condition, EVER. They’re ‘used’ in a literal sense but each of these kegs has undergone an extensive refurbishing process. They have been meticulously cleaned, machine-polished, and fitted with new o-rings including the lid, pressure relief valve, and both liquid and gas dip tubes. Plus, we’ve added two new o-rings on each post.”

15 Pack Special… 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’re in stock
  • Check product page to see if you can still get in on this shipment.

The Best Pin Lock Keg Deal Going on Right Now…

If you’re in the market for four kegs, the four pack with coupon code is probably the best deal going on right now.

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.
