18 Litre Ball Lock Cornelius Keg - Stainless Steel (reconditioned)

Quick Overview

Originally used as soda kegs, these 18 litre Cornelius-style Kegs are ideal for storing and dispensing beer, lager, sparkling wine and cider.   They consist of a stainless steel keg with hot vulcanised rubber bonded to the upper rim and base and are able to hold far higher pressures than plastic kegs, thus making them suitable for force carbonation. This is particularly useful for lager which requires a higher degree of carbonation, although all drinks will benefit from the controlled level of carbonation and dispense pressure achievable.

Our kegs are reconditioned, meaning they are already proven to be durable, hard wearing and reliable, as well as offering excellent value for money.  They are cleaned with the labels removed and are given new rubber seals, lids and poppet valves. They are then tested 'gas-tight' before dispatch.  

The 18 litre/4 gallon size is ideal to fit inside a standard fridge if you want to chill your beer or even make your own kegerator!  They can accomodate the bulk of a standard 5 gallon brew, leaving 1 gallon to be bottled for friends, competitions or long term storage.

Outside diameter: 23cm

Total height: 56cm.

Also available with S30 Injector valve and separate pressure relief valve.

Please note that these Cornelius style kegs may display the occasional superficial mark: this will not affect performance in any way.

Cornelius Kegs (or Cornies) are easy to transport and clean. Their ability to withstand high pressures makes them suitable for force carbonating beverages (particularly relevant for lagers which require a higher degree of carbonation).  A gas-in disconnect (grey) allows a carbon dioxide cylinder and regulator to be utilised to inject CO2 through the short 'gas-in' dip tube into the keg. The regulator controls the gas pressure in the keg and the CO2 is forced to dissolve in the liquid, thus creating the carbonation required.  When ready to serve, the dispense pressure is selected which forces the liquid up the long 'beer-out' dip tube and through the tap connected via a black 'beer-out' disconnect.
