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.
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.
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.

4.8 / 5.0116 ReviewsMore just used than reconditioned, but it works!It works, it holds pressure, that's what counts. The one thing I was slightly disappointed in was that the handle is about ready to fall off making it tricky to carry. Other than that it works fine and doesn't look bad at all. Just wish it were easier to carry.April 14, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoEh...There was damage on the flange around the opening so it doesn't seal correctly. Also, It is a firestone pin lock keg which requires a conversion kit if you don't have that type of connectors.January 6, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoSanta Rasta Brewing CoAll equipment bought arrived in the timely matter expected, no surprises, no complaints!July 30, 2016had to get soda keghad to get soda keg connectors for my kegerator hoses, but it works!July 30, 2016Leaky kegI have purchased 3 of these kegs and 2 are only useable. First keg was great, second keg will only seal above 10-15 psi with the lid in just the right position. This I feel is acceptable because it is a used keg. The third keg won't seal at all. I have tried to lube the o-ring and seat it with 40 psi and even purchased a new lid with no success. I thought these were pressure tested.March 24, 2016Response from Midwest SuppliesI see Gabe already has arranged for this to be fixed up for you. Let us know if we can help further!November 2, 2016Midwest SuppliesBent Liquid LineAfter receiving this keg, I noticed the liquid tube was bent so that it was no longer lined-up with the recess at bottom of keg. I called and asked for a replacement which they promptly shipped. The replacement also had a bent tube. When I called, they told me there was nothing that they could do about it. I went ahead and kept the keg so now there is a wasted beer at the bottom that the bent tube will not pick-up. I will not purchase anymore used kegs from Midwest.February 25, 2016Response from Midwest SuppliesHi Kevin,

If you would like to send us photos via email, we would be happy to try to troubleshoot your issue.November 2, 2016Midwest SuppliesGreat Condition, Great DealThis keg has held pressure well and was easy to clean. New o-rings on the keg was a plus too. It's holding my grapefruit IPA currently.February 23, 2016this reconditioned keg was inthis reconditioned keg was in better shape than I thought it would beJanuary 8, 2016May 12, 2014Good ValueI actually bought a 4-pack of these when they were offered, but even at the current price they are a good value over new. It took some elbow grease, but I was able to clean them up nicely with Bar Keepers Friend cleanser. I also bought replacement seals and poppets and they work great.March 12, 2014

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 5 answersAre there any other pieces I need to make this keg work or does it come with all necessary equipment?BEST ANSWER: The keg came complete with posts and seals. No need for anything else unless you don't have connectors for the gas and liquid lines.I am buying this keg as a gift and don’t know anything about them. Are there any other pieces or parts to buy to make it work or does this contain everything he will need? Except the beer of course. :)BEST ANSWER: Be sure he is using pin lock connections on his kegs. Many people use "ball lock" connections. The two legs look the same but on close examination the connection posts are different. Google it for more info. Also I would recommend buying a set of new O-rings and replacing the old ones on the keg just for insurance. They only cost $3-4.00. I have pin locks and they work fine for meThis keg is type D right?BEST ANSWER: This is a pin lock style keg. Instead of a single Sankey coupler (which is what I assume you mean by "type D"), there are separate couplers for the gas and beer lines. I have not seen 5-gallon kegs that use Sankey couplers, as the ones sold for homebrewing purposes tend to be recycled from duty as soda kegs. The only kegs I've ever seen which use the Sankey style couplers are commercial 1/6th kegs which you can typically get from beer distributors or liquor stores (with beer in them, and requiring a deposit against the return of the keg).
