Ball Lock Keg Single Handle (Used) - 5 gallon

Ball Lock Keg Single Handle (Used) – 5 gallon via Adventures in Homebrewing

More Info

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

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. May have stickers on kegs.
May also have syrup residue in tanks as we only dump them.

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. If you would like to have new o-rings or poppits, the options below allow you to add these. We do not change them but simply add them to the order.

If you are just getting into kegging you will need a kegging setup to go with these kegs. We sell picnic tap systems, tower systems, and kegerator systems.

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 try not to purchase from Pepsi or Coke to avoid heavily used kegs. We are not implying that our kegs are not quality…we just want to avoid any misunderstandings. Most of the kegs have black protective tops and bottoms, some are blue. We may have a few green, red or yellow tops. If you want a particular color, please indicate that at checkout time and we will try to accommodate you.

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.

5 Gallon Single Handle Cornelius Keg, Ball Lock (Used)

Shipping Sweet Spot….

For these kegs, shipping is calculated based on where you live. For me the shipping sweet spot is four kegs. Four kegs figures to just $5.40 shipping per keg.

  • 1 keg – $16.97, $16.97 per keg shipping
  • 2 kegs – $17.73, $8.67 per keg shipping
  • 3 kegs, $19.79, $6.60 per keg shipping
  • 4 kegs – $21.61, $5.40 per keg shipping
  • 5 kegs – $61.80…. $12.36 per keg (per keg shipping costs go up!)

These costs are for me. This will vary based on location.

By the time you factor in shipping, you may be better off with the double handle options, since they qualify for free shipping.

Adventures in Homebrewing’s Early Black Friday Sale is On! + Application Ideas & Search to Help

20% Off at Adventures in Homebrewing! – use coupon code EARLY20

A Search to Help… The sale pages allows you to sort by best selling. That’s great because you can see what other people are buying the most of. The down side is that smaller items can sell a lot and make the results unhelpful. For example, when you buy 2 row, you may buy 20 lbs. That counts as 20 items and makes 2 row show up high in the list. To illustrate that, the current top selling thing is an ice pack for yeast. Lots of yeast gets sold and lots of ice packs.

This search eliminates items that cost less than $60 AND sorts by best selling. The results are much more helpful.
