Product details

Perfect for kegging your homebrew, cider, or soda. These reconditioned ball lock 5-gallon kegs are used, but have been tested and approved to hold pressure -- their most important task. Though the exteriors may have cosmetic damage, we guarantee that they are pressure-capable, as we personally pressure test each and every one when it comes through our doors. Needed, but not included, is a CO2 cylinder, Regulator, and Ball Lock Gas (KX03) and Beverage (KX05) lines.

Looking for a more comprehensive system? See our Draft Brewer® keg systems.

Along with pressure testing each keg, we replace the lid o-rings and outer-post o-rings, if needed. Many of our competitors do not do this, but we want to make absolutely sure you are satisfied -- even if it's a used keg at a low price! Our technicians have also cleaned each keg with a caustic soda rinse -- but even so -- the keg may retain a sweet smell similar to a lemon-lime soft drink. The keg exteriors have not had extensive cleaning, so as with most "used" soda kegs we recommend that you thoroughly clean the keg inside (again) and out before using.

A note about o-rings: If you are concerned about the condition of the o-rings you may purchase extra o-rings separately, in case any tear during use.

This amazing price is worth a few dents! Because these kegs are used, many show exterior wear and tear that will not affect the keg performance to hold pressure. Holding pressure is the keg main function, and it will keep your beer tasting fresh and delicious. The affordability of buying "reconditioned" is definitely worth a few scratches and dents.

These kegs are sourced from a variety of vendors and are not customer returns. They may not look new, but they work like new, thus the major discounted price from that of a brand new keg.

Note: Keg Lube can help prevent CO2 leaks and prolong the life of the keg seals.

Good value

Can't beat the price for usable keg. Seals are in great shape. There are a few cosmetic dings but that just gives it character.

Used keg in used condition

Arrived in good condition with probably close to the max amount of pressure allowable still contained from the pressure test. Lid oring was clearly new, but both diptube seals and one post oring needed replacement, which costed me 60 cents. When I filled it, the PRV leaked momentarily (but was able to seal again), so I replaced that too, for $2.50. with a repair cost of $3.10, I am happy with this purchase but for those planning on buying, get a few sets of o-rings (which have a short life regardless) and parts so you don't end up ordering separately because these kegs are what I call fixer-uppers. If you're not a fixer, go buy yourself some of the new kegs.

Should have bought Gasket kit too

Came missing O-ring on liquid side and the large O-Ring on the lid promptly stuck to the top and then fell in the keg after I had put 5 gallons in it. Fortunately I had a new gasket pack come in that day.

Not at all what I expected from a “reconditioned” keg.

Great value

Great purchase for home brew, especially on sale. The reconditioned keg was delivered clean and pressurized (to show seals were good). However, the o-rings on the liquid and gas quick disconnects were cracked and needed to be replaced.
