DetailsAlong 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's performance to hold pressure. Holding pressure is the keg's 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.

Browse 6 questions Browse 6 questions and 17 answersDoes a standard pump tap attach to this keg? Like if I wanted to go get it filled at my local brewery and drink at home?BEST ANSWER: No. A standard pump tap has a Sankey connector. A ball lock keg, also known as a Korney Keg, is not compatible with a Sankey connector.How often should these be reconditioned?BEST ANSWER: When you see damaged o rings or they begin to leak would be a good indicator. You can purchase a o ring kit from Midwest. Always good to have them on hand just in case.Does this hold 5 gallons?BEST ANSWER: This keg holds 5 gallons with a little room to spare.What are the dimensions of this keg?BEST ANSWER: Jeff,
Mine is 25" tall and 8-1/4" in diameter, measured to the closest 1/16." I'm very happy with it.
Jim Glaser.Are these good to go with your Nitro kit?Draft Brewer® 5 Gallon Reconditioned Ball Lock KegBEST ANSWER: The Draft Brewer kit works great with the Nitrogen system. The only concern you should have is finding a place near you that will fill your tank with beer gas (70/30 or 75/25 Nitrogen to CO2). Some places will only trade and you may have to work with the owner if you tank is a different size. That is what happened to me, but I live in the desert.
John K.Do these kegs have a pressure relief valve?BEST ANSWER: Yes, these kegs will have pressure relief valves on the lids. -Mike W, Midwest Supplies
