DetailsThis 3 Gallon New Cornelius Keg is great for splitting batches of beer or soda between keg and bottles, or simply small batches. The smaller size makes your homebrew and soda much more portable in keg form for parties, picnics, etc.
Note: These kegs are only available with a single metal handle.

4.6 / 5.011 Reviews3 Gallons - ExactlyNo head space on this little gem. The lid will only go on one way. Those two things make getting the lid installed tricky when filled with 3 gallons of liquid.
One other thing: Even thought I knew from the picture that rubber is only on the bottom, getting into and out of my keezer means a bit more caution needs to be taken than for my 5 gallon kegs which have rubber on top as well as bottom.July 8, 2019Purchased
3 months agoGreat sizeLove the shorter height of this keg for my keezer. I am able to fit the keg on the shelf of my keezer without having to add a ton of height. Also works well as I like to brew 8 gallon batches now. The smaller keg size also is helpful for taking beer to parties. If in doubt buy one!March 6, 2014Yeah BabyThese small kegs are great for small batches, fitting lots of different beers into your kegerator or kezzer, or just for bringing to parties.September 23, 2013Perfect for mini fridgeI keg to my regular 5 gallon kegs first. Then I force the beer through the pressure hoses into the three gallon keg to stay cold in my mini fridge. Just one is all you need, and they last forever. I have had one for nearly 20 years, and it still looks like new.September 17, 2013Nice kegVery nice keg but is about the same price as a 5 gallon one. Nice for bringing to parties though.May 31, 20133 gallon kegGreat kegs, although all new. Easy to handle. Two fit in my kegerator, 5 gallon cornies are too tall.May 30, 2013Very sweet little keg!I own 5 of these and love them! They work great for small test batches and pretty much everything else you want to carbonate. They clean up nice with the all stainless dome top but lack of rubber does make it more prone to damage if you move them around a lot. Expensive if you are comparing the size to price but Take care of them and they will last forever!March 16, 2013fits nice on keezer humpI bought this since it fits nicely on the hump in my keezer. It is a great little keg, but it seems a little pricey.February 8, 2013Great size, not friendly with kits thoughGreat size for taking to family events. Only issue is if your buying kits as they are 5 gallon batches, can split between two of these or 2 of the 2.5 gallons kegs. Usually make all grain batches of 8.5 gallons to split between one of these and have a 5 gallon and 3 in the end._x000D__x000D_Highly suggest all brewers have a few smaller kegs like these. Excellent quality, wish they had some used ones though to cut down the priceJanuary 29, 2013Great size!These kegs are very good quality. But the best thing about them is that they fit in the top of my wine cabinet. Great for bulk aging in small temperature controlled spaces.April 17, 2012
