Kegging Homebrew Just Got Easier, Cheaper, and More Efficient

Earlier this week we added this 5 Gallon PET Homebrew Keg to our ever-expanding lineup of homebrewing equipment, and we’re pretty excited. You should be excited too (especially if you’re a homebrewer who kegs or wants to start kegging.)

There are three major benefits to using this keg over traditional homebrew tanks:

1. There’s a durable removable PET plastic inner liner that makes cleaning and refilling it exponentially easier

2. It has a US Sankey coupler fitting, which means you don’t need to buy a bunch of quick disconnects to accommodate the gas and liquid valve posts – everyone knows that there’s nothing worse than having a keg of delicious homebrew and a jockey box or kegerator that you can’t use to tap it

3. A lot of times it’s cheaper – they’re only $59.99 brand new (a few bucks cheaper than our used corny kegs) and you don’t have to buy the quick disconnects… plus the outer shell is made of sleek black plastic and looks really nice

    Please help me to understand why Sankey fittings are superior to ball lock? If my keg set-up is already outfitted with ball lock fittings why would I want to switch to Sankey?

      There is no reason to! We would never encourage someone to switch over if they have a system that is working well. Sankey systems are just used by professional breweries and theoretically they are less prone to leaks because there is one centralized point of contact. If you are working with ball locks, and it works for you, keep it up!

    Where can I buy these? None of the links seem to go to the right spot.

      Hi David,

      Since this is an older post, some of the product links may be outdated. I would definitely check out our Homebrewing Supplies section, where we have a Clearance Sale going on right now, and our Homebrew Kegging section, which should have similar items to the ones mentioned in the post.

    Are you still selling this? I couldn’t find it on your website and would really like to purchase one. I go camping in the beach a few times a year with a group of friends and usually brew a 5 gallon batch for each trip. I always end up filling a ton of growlers because I worry about the sand getting in my corny kegs and messing them up. This product paired with a 5lb CO2 tank would be the perfect solution to that problem!

      Hey Miles,

      Unfortunately we do not carry this item anymore. We do offer a variety of homebrew kegs, such as Corny kegs, casks for ale, Hoff-Stevens, and more, but not sure those will solve the issue of sand potentially getting in the kegs. Sorry about that.
