This is a re-conditioned 5 gallon ball lock, soda keg.  They are sometimes called "corny kegs" because of the manufacturer, Cornelius, but they can be made by several manufactures including Firestone, AEB, and others.  These kegs have been cleaned and pressure tested using the following process:

  • Rinsed out with water on the inside and sprayed on the outside.
  • Soaked in a hot "Brew Clean" solution for about an hour with poppet valves depressed to fill dip tubes with cleaning solution. Then re-rinsed.
  • The keg is then pressurized and soap tested for leaks, then left for several days and re-tested for pressure before shipping.
  • If you keg has a "sweet" smell when you open it this is normal.  This smell comes from the residual "Brew Clean" cleaner, NOT from soda. Just rinse the keg and sanitize again before kegging.

These kegs ship under our flat rate shipping (some of our competitors exclude kegs from free or reduced flat rate shipping programs).

These kegs come with their original O-rings AND a new set of O-rings at no additional charge (some competitors charge up to $3.99 for this new set of O-rings)  This O-ring set includes Lid O-ring, two post O-rings and two dip-tube O-rings.  

Please remember that these are used kegs.  They will have dings, dents, stickers on the outside and could have some permanent staining that will not effect your beer.  If you want a perfect keg we sell new kegs as well.

    Good as always

    I have been ordering from Kegconnection for a few years now and they never disappoint. The keg was perfectly clean and had a small amount of pressure in it when it showed up at my door 4 DAYS after ordering it. None of the kegs I have ordered have leaked. None of the handles have been torn off or damaged. Great quality every time.

    Much better than I expected

    Posted by Scott Wood on 26th Jul 2020

    I recently ran out of available ball lock kegs and even though I looked at the "normal: online sites for used ones locally, I simply couldn't find any. I have been a listener of Homebrew Happy Hour for a long time and figured I'd place my first order. I couldn't be happier. Great quality kegs, some spare o-rings and at a price, shipped, that beats what I would have paid used locally.

    Used keg

    Posted by Jordan on 7th Apr 2020

    The keg showed up in 3 days after I placed the order. It’s a used keg, it shows it. It is a little rough to look at but appears to be sound, they sent extra o rings with it and I plan on brewing something this weekend to put into it.

    Not the prettiest keg I’ve ever owned, but seems to be functional.

    Great Used Keg

    Posted by Brock Tubre on 29th Mar 2020

    This keg works as expected. It does have visible wear since it is a used keg. It also had old stickers on the keg but I was able to peel them off.

    It was clean inside and a simple water rinse was all I needed to do before sanitizing it and storing home brewed beer in it. Hooked it into C02 with no problem. No leaks. Works great!

    Used Keg

    Posted by BruceH on 16th Mar 2020

    Kegs were pressurized upon arrival. In rough shape, needed interior cleaning, still a good value. I was spoiled by the excellent kegs I had received in the past and finally got the dented up average kegs I paid for. Fast shipping, good price.

    Best Deal Ever

    Posted by JM on 7th May 2019

    Can´t find better price anywhere, this kegs are awesome, they have some dents and decals, but they hold pressure very well, i'm starting to sale my homebrew to a bar and a i need many kegs and with a tight budget this works excellent i had purchased 7 kegs by now and i´m planning on buying more, if you need performance before fancy stuff this is what you need period.
