ISO a 2.5 gallon corny keg

Post by sstrait » Thu May 25, 2017 9:28 am

If anyone happens to have a 2.5 gallon keg to part ways with please let me know. I plan on ordering a "new" one for around $80, but figured I'd check here first. I'm also good to just borrow one for Zoo brew if someone had one that wasn't in use. I'd return it after the event, or if all goes well and you are at the event I'd likely be able to get it back to you that night.

I just have 4.5 gallons of my IPA and I wanted to bottle half and keg the rest. I figured I didn't want a ton of headspace so a 2.5 gallon corny would work great. I figured I'd order this by this Friday at the latest since I'd like to have this kegged by 6/4/17.

Thanks!

As long as you purged the keg with CO2 first, and maintain your pressure afterwards, you should be good to do a partial keg fill. I've done it before with no issues.

My beer at Brewbeque was a 3/5 keg fill.

I'll keep that in mind for sure. I have a full CO2 tank and two empty 5 gallon kegs.
