Great keg
I love the Italian kegs as the posts and overall construction are higher quality.

Not what I expected for an AEB keg
2 months before purchasing this AEB keg from NB, I purchase 2 AEB kegs from another online store. The AEB kegs that I got first have a very smooth inside weld but the one from NB is not ground as smooth which can make cleaning a bit more of a chore or contaminates will hide in the weld and cause problems. I was very surprised to find this and thought maybe it was a fake but the part # is the same as the first 2 that I purchased. other than that, its a well made keg.

Not as good as standard corny keg
I have one of these new kegs and 2 used corny kegs and I prefer the corny kegs for 2 reasons:1. The beer line out (extending from the bottom of the inside of the keg to the post) is slightly bent and it's very hard to line up correctly so it is centered in the middle of the keg when reassembling. With a corny keg, just stick the metal tube into the keg and tighten the post - no problems.2. The posts for the Italian keg come apart so the spring, poppet and other parts all come apart. I supposed it makes for better cleaning but I never had an issue with the standard corny keg. More importantly, I've had 2 leaks from the posts after filling the kegs and they were very slow so I wasted a lot of CO2 not finding them until days later. Now I check all connections once pressurized with soapy water to ensure no leaks, but I still seem to get them every once in a while (I just fix them right away). I don't have this issue with the standard corny keg posts.Other than that it looks much better than my used corny kegs but I'm most concerned with the contents and the keg performing the way it's intended. Northern Brewer always does a great job with product choice and selection, so it's nice having another option but i'm not a fan. My 2 cents...

I'm new to kegoligy. Can I use this as a first keg? What else will I need to buy with this? I assume I'll need a tap and a co2 dispenser.

BEST ANSWER: For kegging, you need a place to store the keg cold. You need a CO2 tank, a regulator, the gas line and disconnect, the keg, and then the liquid line and disconnect with a faucet. This keg will work great for your first keg, but you would also want a ball lock foam free tubing kit, a ball lock gas connector kit, a regulator, and a co2 tank. Cheers!
Is the metal tube that extends from the post to the bottom of the inside of the keg straight or slightly bent? If it is slightly bent, I always have a hard time getting it lined up correctly when reassembling after cleaning/sanitizing. Any suggestions?

BEST ANSWER: These are usually angled some. I will usually position it just to the left of where I want it to be, and then when doing the final tightening of the keg post with a wrench, I will hold the dip tube so it does not move too far, and it is usually very close to where I want it to be once the keg post is tight. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
Could you explain in more detail why are your kegs more than twice the cost of everyone else?
