Used & Pressure Tested
Ball Lock 
Includes Pressure Relief Valve Lid

(As of 2-18-2014 )
(We are throwing in a set of O-rings with every purchase of this keg.)

Pressure tested 5 gallon, stainless steel, cornelius style tank. These tanks are guaranteed to hold pressure.  25" tall and 8.5" diameter.  Tanks will show normal wear and tear. May have stickers on kegs.
May also have syrup residue in tanks as we only dump them.

Kegs include the o-rings and poppits that were installed when we received the tanks. We will often change an o-ring or poppit to get the tank to hold pressure. If you would like to have new o-rings or poppits, the options below allow you to add these. We do not change them but simply add them to the order.

If you are just getting into kegging you will need a kegging setup to go with these kegs. We sell picnic tap systemstower systems, and kegerator systems

We know some homebrewers are more picky than others, so please keep in mind that these are USED kegs. Some of these kegs are probably 30 years old. Do not expect new kegs. If you are looking for new kegs, please check out our new kegs. We try and have quality kegs available at all times. With this said, they are going to show normal wear and tear. We try not to purchase from Pepsi or Coke to avoid heavily used kegs. We are not implying that our kegs are not quality...we just want to avoid any misunderstandings.  Most of the kegs have black protective tops and bottoms, some are blue.  We may have a few green, red or yellow tops.  If you want a particular color, please indicate that at checkout time and we will try to accommodate you.

If you are unhappy with your used 5 Gallon Cornelius Kegs for any reason, we will gladly take them back. The purchaser will be responsible for return shipping charges.

I've never been disappointed with "experienced" kegs from AHB. The two I just received were immaculate inside and out. One looked as close to new as you could ever hope for! - Reviewed by on 6/22/2015
Rating Good used keg
Recently purchase one, arrived in good condition with pressure on the keg and they included new o-rings. Remember these are used kegs and still have soda residue in them you will need to clean. - Reviewed by on 6/19/2015
Rating Great Keg Better Price
This has been, by far, the best pricing I've found for a ball lock keg! Obviously a reconditioned keg will have the visible scratches and stuff, but I'm not displaying my kegs on the mantel. Works great, fast delivery, and can't beat the pricing. I'll be making more purchases here soon. - Reviewed by on 4/29/2015

I have three of your used ball locks now and while all have some character from past service all work great without a single issue. Great way to save a few bucks towards some good Perlick faucets. - Reviewed by on 4/11/2015
Rating Great Condition.........
This is one of the better buys on these kegs! And with the new "O" rings you can't go wrong! Thanks! - Reviewed by on 1/20/2015
Rating Great deal, quick delivery and with awesome seal
Product arrived quickly with O-ring replacement kit taped to the top. The keg was holding pressure as I had to release it before opening for cleaning. A little syrup but it cleaned up easily and quickly. I would not hesitate to purchase additional used cornies in the future. - Reviewed by on 11/21/2014
Rating Great Kegs
I have bought 4 of these now. All hold pressure well. Aside from some stickers and the odd ding these kegs are great. Would highly recommend them. Price can't be beaten elsewhere. After a thorough clean in oxyclean and some scrubbing my used kegs look really shiny. Given that wear and tear to poppets, posts, PRV is expected over time anyway I can't see the point in buying new kegs. - Reviewed by on 10/22/2014
Rating Provided an excellent used keg!
I must say (and this comment may not make the cut because they don't want everyone making special requests), I made a special request for a keg in excellent condition and they delivered! It came pressurized, dent-free, tubes and posts in near mint condition, new set of gaskets... Really an excellent value for the product. Thanks! Will be doing business again soon! - Reviewed by on 10/2/2014
Rating Good Value
Picked up 2 used kegs and both are now filled with beer. The 1st keg had a damaged gas dip tube upon arrival. A replacement tube was sent and now the keg works perfectly. The second keg was in working condition when I received it. Will be buying a couple more of these once my keezer is built. - Reviewed by on 9/11/2014
Rating Great Product
I needed kegs for an IPA I had made for a tasting. The kegs I ordered got here quick. A little bit of clean up and they were good as new. Very happy with their performance. Great for the money if you don't mind a little bit of clean up. I'll be ordering a couple more soon in adding to my keezer. - Reviewed by on 8/17/2014
