Grade A corni kegs, 45 each.

Post by LeeH » Sun Sep 30, 2018 4:10 pm

Cheapest I’ve seen them since Norm packed up.

I remember the good days when Norm would sell them for 33 each if you bought 2-3.

Not seen him sell kegs for yonks. Just the odd regulator.

Kegs came and they are great, not what I would describe as grade A but are very tidy for 1996 kegs.

Seems the old ones were shorter though!

There was a discussion on a NE Facebook group about the Homebrew Company kegs, the refurbished ones are the stumpy ones but the non-refurbished are the taller and thinner type, it can make a lot of difference to how many kegs a fridge will fit without hacking away the insides but you are probably looking at more of a lottery with the latter.

makes a heck of a difference. I bought three refurbished ones from Keg Kingdom and had to send them back. They looked really lovely but my fridges fit in four of the tall thin normal corny kegs. Could only get two in with the shorter ones. No good at all.

Would the short fat ones actually be pin lock kegs converted to ball lock posts?

No, they can be both. I got 4 stumpy ones from THBC.

Those look very decent for the price. I got 6 from here that were not refurbished so did require quite a lot of cleaning and some TLC but they do work fine. These were the taller ones as just measured one there.

I am in the process of slowly phasing them out of the new AEB ones as I found with my 9L one that the lids fit so much better and tigher without pressure and when pressure sealing it is done with no issues, I did have some kegs that required quite a high pressure to hold the seal which was inconsistent.
