10 and 15 Gallon Torpedo Ball Lock Kegs! + Hands on Review

 New 10 & 15 Gal. Torpedo Kegs!

New 10 & 15 Gal. Torpedo Kegs!

From MoreBeer:

Look out below! The Torpedo Keg Depth Charge series just dropped and they’re set to send blast waves through the homebrew world. Large-scale homebrewers will appreciate the ability to fit their entire batch into a single 10 or 15 gallon ball lock keg, and you can expect the same great features that have made Torpedo Kegs such a hit. Laser welded construction for superior quality, rolled stainless steel handles that will last a lifetime, and stackable design that won’t interfere with your fittings.

Thoughts from HBF: This is a great entry into the homebrewing keg market.  Larger 10 and 15 gallon kegs are tough to find and even more difficult to find at a reasonable price.  The current prices, $219 for a 15 gallon keg and $199 for a 10 gallon keg are.. bargains, especially considering that they ship for free to many US addresses.  Beyond kegging larger homebrew batches these can be used as fermenters.

Hands on Review!  Check our my in depth Hands on Review of the 10 gallon version of this keg.

Rare Deal: ONE Available – Used Ss Brewtech 1 BBL Chronical Brewmaster Edition – Save $145

Deals on SsBrewtech gear are rare.  MoreBeer has one single, 1 BBL Chronical available.  This is used.  It’s marked down $100 to $1,199.99.

Stacking Sale!  MoreBeer is discounting most things, sitewide by up to $45 based on your order size when you use coupon code SAVEMORE.  See: Brew More Save More at MoreBeer

Technically speaking… Ss Brewing Technologies gear is excluded from the sale.  I check and the coupon code DOES work with this fermenter.  Guessing that’s because it’s a one-off unit.

Again, there is only one of these available.  If you’re interested, you should act sooner rather than later.  Check MoreBeer for availability and pricing.

Hands on Review: Torpedo 10 Gallon Ball Lock Homebrew Kegs!

Larger 10 and 15 gallon homebrew kegs have been very hard to find… for years.  There have been a couple sources, eBay was a best bet, but that was touch and go at best.  When you could find one, prices were… outrageous.  $300++ for a used 10 gallon keg would not be uncommon.  Again, that’s IF you could find one.

Great news homebrewers…. MoreBeer has introduced 10 and 15 gallon homebrew ball lock kegs via their Torpedo line of kegs and accessories.  These are BRAND NEW kegs that are (hopefully) readily available at a reasonable price.

Why a larger 10 or 15 gallon homebrew keg?

The first and most obvious answer is for large batch brewers.  If you brew 10 or 15 gallon batches, it sure would be nice to have a keg that fits your entire batch.  Even if you don’t brew 10 gallons, you may want to brew a couple 5 gallon batches of the same beer (much like professional brewers do) and keg it in a single keg.

A less obvious answer to the question is… to use as a fermenter.  Kegs are well-built stainless steel vessels that are pressure capable.  You can easily move them around and they are built to be bumped around a bit.  Using a keg opens up some really interesting possibilities…. fermenting under pressure with a Spunding Valve [See: Build a Spunding Valve! – How and Why], naturally carbonating in the fermenter/Krausening (again with the aid of a Spunding Valve), transferring under pressure, oxygen-free (or near oxygen-free) transfers, re-purposing expelled CO2 and more.

A third application is similar to the second… Use as a UniVessel.  Ferment and serve in the same vessel.  Save time and simplify your process.
