What Is a Cornelius Keg?
Cornelius keg is essentially a stainless steel container designed for storing and dispensing beverages. Corny kegs were originally used by Coke and Pepsi before they switched to using boxes with plastic bags. After that happened, Corny kegs got picked up by homebrewers and their popularity has been growing ever since. Now, these kegs are produced specifically for home brewing needs and with homebrewers in mind.
Corny kegs can hold a maximum of 130 PSI and come in different sizes, the most common ones being:
- 1.5-gallon (6 liters)
- 2.5-gallon (10 liters)
- 5-gallon (19 liters)
A typical Corny keg has a lid with a check valve and two posts: gas in and liquid out. These posts can use a ball-lock connection or a pin-lock connection, depending on the manufacturer of the keg.
How Does a Corny Keg Work?
The way a Corny keg works is really simple. Once you have the beer line and air line connected, the rest is just physics - CO2 comes into the keg via the “gas-in” post and pushes the beer out from the bottom via the “liquid-out post”. This simple design also provides for easier access inside the keg and faster cleaning.
Now you can see why Cornelius kegs have become so popular among homebrewers. They are super easy to use, maintain, and service - plus, you can always get the keg of the size that’s most suitable for your needs.
