Loose Handle/Bottom Ball Lock Keg (Used) - 5 Gallon
These are very "loved" kegs that are suffering from minor, mostly cosmetic damage to the rubber handles around top and bottom of keg. Still great for kegging beer, who cares what it looks like in the fridge! Loose handle kegs also make a great choice to serve as line cleaning kegs. Simply fill it with your favorite cleaner/sanitizer, connect to your CO2 system and push the your cleaning or sanitizing liquid through your beer lines. Also works well as a sanitizing bucket while brewing, being taller than traditional buckets.
This is a used 5 gallon ball lock kegs. All kegs are pressure tested. Used kegs may have minor dings and scratches along with stickers from previous companies. Kegs will include the o-rings and poppets that were installed when received by AHS. We often change an o-ring or poppet to get the tank to hold pressure The keg requires ball lock attachments for both gas and beer sides. It is a good idea to have a spare set of replacement o-rings always on hand, with some keg o-ring lubricant. Lubricating the o-rings will help to make them last longer, but eventually they will become brittle and have to be replaced. Dimensions: 25" tall x 8.5" diameter (63.2 cm x 21.6 cm). Good Keg Maintenance Between each use, kegs need to cleaned and sanitized. Taking off the posts and cleaning them can help ensure great tasting beer. Please remember these kegs are not being used in the soda industry any longer. Chances are, they are up to 30 years old. They have been used for Soda and might even come from a small brewery that purchased them from a soda company. They will have soda or beer residue inside which will require cleaning. The post may be sticky and difficult to get off as they have years of soda/beer build up in/on them. Please be prepared for a used product as we do not want to sugar coat this in any way. We are not stating that our used kegs are junk, we are simply stating, "These are used kegs". If a used keg does not sound like you, check out our great prices on new kegs here.
