If you would like to make this a keg system please see the add on section.

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 are not implying that our kegs are not quality...we just want to avoid any misunderstandings.
If you are unhappy with your used kegs for any reason, we will gladly take them back. The purchaser will be responsible for return shipping charges.

Good Deal
I bought 2 of these. They came as advertised. They were in pretty good shape and were holding pressure. I did order some extra poppets and O-rings, just in case. I like the size and bought them to augment my 5 gallon kegs. They allow me to keg part of a 5 gallon batch and bottle the rest up front. I usually prime the whole batch, put part in to the keg to naturally carbonate then bottle the rest. They work great for this purpose. I also thought I could possibly stack a couple of these in my keezer and have an extra beer or two on tap. Unfortunately, in my case, stacked, they are about an inch too tall for my collar. If you haven't extended your keezer with a collar yet, you could probably put one of them on the compressor hump and fit an extra keg in it without modification. Before I put my keezer collar on I had three kegs on picnic taps. I could have had a shorter one on the hump. I solved this problem by putting a collar on the keezer. I could have put it off.

Great for small or split batches!
I bought two of these to split my normal 5 gallon batches into smaller "experimental" brews, or just to have some more variety. In my most recent, I made a base beer and split into Crème Brulee and Bananas Foster dessert beers. Since I already use pin-lock kegs exclusively, this was the perfect deal. They both came charged with gas, so I know they'd hold pressure. As is my normal practice, I stripped them both completely down, thoroughly cleaned and sanitised them, then replaced all of the o-rings and poppets. I highly recommend these to anyone needing smaller kegs. Ed

Awesome kegs and service
I had a question about which pin-to-ball conversion kit I would need, so I called. As usual, I got someone who was happy to help, took their time explaining things, and basically said, just add a conversion kit and tell us in the notes it's for these kegs so we give you the right one. This is my first stop when I need something - great service and the kegs arrived in great shape, just as described, and work perfectly.

3 gal kegs
I bought 4 of these 3 gal kegs in 2014. 1 of them arrived with bent opening it was impossible to seal it. I returned it. I rebuilt ball locks and replaced all seals on other 3 kegs. One of kegs always had a slow gas leak no matter what I tried. By early 2016 two remaining kegs developed leaks and it was impossible to fix them. So I trashed them. Lesson learned - these are used kegs and many of them will be deformed due to heavy commercial use and therefore they will not last much longer than they already did.

Great for portability
These are much easier to manage than a 5 Gal keg for parties or smaller refrigerators. They hold a really good amount of beer and came in great shape. Fully pressurized and ready to clean and use. Glad I purchased them.

Great for minifridge
I bought one of these for use in a minifridge kegerator. What can I say? It works and holds pressure. The pin-lock system is a little difficult to take on and off with a 13/16" wrench, but it can be done, albeit awkwardly. Might be worth buying a pin lock conversion set if you don't have the specialized tools that fit the pins, though having the pins does make it easy to not mix up the gas and beer lines.

For the price its a great deal
I ordered two of these and have been really happy with them. They are pressurized but not cleaned (as it states), but it took very little time to clean them up and put them to good use.

Great addition to the brewery
I use these to store Star Sans, which makes sanitizing beer lines very easy. I also use them for experimental or 1/2 batches, as I don't like to make a full five gallons of something I'm testing. These are a perfect size for my brewing needs.
