Draft Brewer® Reconditioned Pin Lock Keg
Perfect for kegging your homebrew, cider, or soda, these reconditioned pin 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 and we personally pressure test each and every one when it comes through our doors.
Needed, but not included, is a CO2 cylinder, Regulator, and Pin Lock Gas (KX07) and Beverage (KX09) 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 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.22" Tall x 8.75" diameter.
Note: Keg Lube can help prevent CO2 leaks and prolong the life of the keg seals.
A Pin Lock Socket Tool (K197) can help in the removal of Pin Lock posts for cleaning.

the keg is damaged and not sealing correctly. Co2 leaks from the top
In very great shape,fast shipping right now it's foll of beer and in my kegarater am going to draw one as soon as I hit submit.
Okay, right up front I'll admit I bought the pin lock keg by mistake since all my hardware is ball lock. First thing I didn't like was that the keg was pretty beat up, but it's used so what-are-ya-gonna-do. Second thing is that there's no manual pressure relief valve on these kegs. I like to purge the headspace with CO2 and now I have to go find a chopstick or something to stick in gas line fitting and connect/remove the CO2 cylinder a bunch of times and hope I don't get sprayed with beer (rather than just pull the convenient valve ring on a ball lock keg top). Lesson learned.
As always, very happy with Northern Brewer products and service.
opened it up to clean it out and was met with a blast of pressurized air. Well, at least I know it works!
