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 ReviewsGood purchasePicked up one of these kegs for 1st time kegging. Working great. Arrived in "needs a scrubbing" condition but stainless and rubber cleaned up nicely. I was worried about a dent in the mouth of the seal but holds seal/pressure just fine. Pin locks have worked great for quickly switching lines/connectors.February 23, 2013Good deal and well cleaned insideI'm happy with them. They were cleaned very well inside. Outside is pretty dirty, but not dents or dings. I'm buying a third tonight.March 6, 2012greatalmost the lowest price I found - definetely the best quality.March 27, 2012Well worth the priceThese came promptly and were in very good condition. We bought two, one for beer and one for soda. They work well, but yo need to replace the o rings relatively often. Be sure to get some keg lube. I did not and I regret it.February 26, 2013Great ValueFist kegs I have purchased; arrived pressurized and in decent condition. I purchased four of these at the end of the year BOGO sale. With S&H came to $30 keg. I will buy some more this year if the sale happens again.February 27, 2013Fantastic!For a used keg, i couldnt believe how great of shape it was in. It was clean, odor free, shiny and, had a neat little MW sticker on it!!! No dings or dents (which can be expected on most used kegs) and the price was phenomenal! You cant beat a better price on a used keg!!!!!!! Thanks Midwest, many more orders to come, just keep the kegs in stock for me. I love brewing!April 18, 2012Good kegGood keg. Better condition than a keg I bough locally for $50. A sticker and some marks on the stainless steel, but I don't care about that. Inside was clean. I don't know if all these pin lock kegs include a pressure relief valve, but mine did. Nice surprise 'cause the description didn't mention it. I was able to get a keg and a bunch of other stuff and still paid the basic $12.95 shipping. Sweet. Will probably buy a couple more.April 29, 2012Excellent ValueOrdered four, all came as described. Picked them up for half price on sale. Excellent Value.March 1, 2013Clean, excellent condition, great priceI wanted two pin lock kegs for Belgian styles where I didn't want to contaminate my other equipment. When I saw that they were on sale, of course I jumped on it._x000D__x000D_I expected to have to do some cleaning, etc., but these kegs were in excellent condition, clean and odor-free. I ran some sanitizer through them, just for safety, but I have complete confidence that they will fit my needs perfectly.June 16, 2012Great productI purchased my keg in mid December. It arrived within a few days of ordering and I was more than pleased. The o-rings were in great condition, no dents or dings either. All I had to do was sanitize it and fill it up. I've put 5 batches of beer through it and have had no issues with functionality whatsoever. The price was extremely competitive and the service was very prompt.March 9, 2013

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 5 answersI 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).Are 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.
