DetailsSmall and mighty. Introducing the Draft Brewer® Cannonball®—the first mini keg that packs the power of a draft system into a portable, compact 1.75 gallon barrel.
Artillery for the small batch brewer. Carbonate homebrew in minutes, not weeks. Real-time carbonation control. A quick pressure adjustment and you’re instantly pouring perfect pints.
The Cannonball® blasts 3- and 5-gallon kegs out of the water. Barely bigger than a milk jug, it slides straight onto a fridge shelf, pops in a cooler or drops right into your trunk. From tailgating to camping, a picnic or a party, the Cannonball® is the party-powering ammunition you need to have a good time, anytime and anywhere.
Cannonball® kegs are easily stackable once disconnects have been attached.
Note: Does not include a CO2 Tank

4.3 / 5.08 ReviewsOk kegs with poorly made posts.Keg body is well make, however the ball lock post have given me a lot of trouble connecting line. I wish I had returned it when I first had issues connecting line. With lots of fighting and trying different fittings and large amounts of keg lube they has started to work better, however not to the level I expect at this price point.January 3, 2018Purchased
1 year agoBeen brewing many years so going from 5 gallon corney kegs to these smaller kegs was the best option for me since all things brewing come out of the basement much easier to handle. Easy enough to take anywhere, fit the coolers well. My only recommendation is when getting ready to seal use a little keg lube on the lid and hit it with 25-30 lbs co2 and you,ll have no problems. Now it,s easy to carb small batches of things besides beer like skeeter pee (holy whaa!) sweet fruit meads (mel-o-mels)seems endless,3 Grandsons favorite- carbed raspberry lemonade.November 15, 2017Purchased
1 year agoFits in the kitchen fridgeI purchased three of these kegs and so far I'm very happy with them because:
- they are small and portable and easy to take to a party;
- they fit in my kitchen fridge.
I am considering getting some more.May 28, 2017Purchased
1 year agoIdeal for what I plan to use it for.This mini keg is just perfect for what I want it for. At the moment it is setting on a shelf in my living room where I can point it out to visitors and inform them that is what my ashes will be buried in.February 4, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoPortable & Useful, but still has Issues.Purchased this a while back, thought I would update after putting it through some use. The lever for the lid is an incredibly tight fight and will take skin when it slams open trapping your fingers between the lid lever and the top of the cannonball. Second, after use I soaked in cleaner and while preparing to empty, one of the handles broke off, covering me & the kitchen floor w/ PBW. Aside from that the unit still holds pressure & I continue to use it occasionally, so I will be fair & give it 3 stars.February 2, 2017Great travel kegGreat travel keg for small get togethers. Especially if you pair it with a mini CO2 regulator and tap.January 9, 2017Purchased

Browse 7 questions Browse 7 questions and 23 answersHow tall is this keg?BEST ANSWER: Mine is just a little over 11 inches tall. I would say 11 and 1/8I use the pin lock system for many of my kegs. Can I convert this keg to a pin lock system too?BEST ANSWER: Yes the mini keg uses standard openings so you can interchange either system as neededWhat else do I need in addition to just the keg to make the system work ?BEST ANSWER: You will need a way to pressurize the keg with carbon dioxide and a way to dispense the beer. You can buy a "beer line" from Midwest that has a ball lock fitting on one end and a picnic tap on the other end. This attaches to the port on top of the keg labeled "out". You will also need a gas line with a ball lock fitting on one end that goes to the port labeled "in" on the keg. the gas line gets attached to the regulator of a CO2 tank. You can get the regulator form midwest, but you can get the CO2 tank from your local gas supply store. I go to a welding supply place.Can use smaller kegs with this system like 2.5 or 3 gal, or even the cannonball keg?Draft Brewer® Cannonball® Mini KegBEST ANSWER: Assuming you either use one of the two air feeds from the bigger setup (two kegs, one 5 gal and a mini of any size) or you purchase a adapter to split one of the two feeds into two (all three kegs) then the answer is yes you can use any size kegs.
I currently run a 5 lb CO2 with a single regulator into a 3 way split to run two 5 gallons kegs and a cannonball keg.Does this keg have the Cornelius-brand, Firestone-brand, or AEB-brand type of components (ball-lock posts, poppets, lid, PRV, etc.)? Just need to know what spare/replacement parts are appropriate.BEST ANSWER: The stock posts are Type B with universal poppets. The lid is AEB style with a Type A pressure release. Our standard o-ring set can provide replacement sealing o-rings.I am old fashioned and use pin-lock kegs. Can I convert this keg to pin-lock?BEST ANSWER: This keg could be converted to Pin Lock if desired, it has the keg-post threading of 19/32", like a true "Cornelius-brand" keg does. If you can get, or if you have, a gas and liquid Pin Lock post from a Cornelius-brand Pin Lock keg, they would thread onto this keg and work.What is the keg diameter?BEST ANSWER: Nine inches.
