Imagine this…. you’re out camping with friends, and one of your buddies says he would love to have a cold brew. Then just picture the looks on their faces as you pull your brand new Cornelius Keg out of your cooler, full of your rich home brew!

This 2.5 gallon corny keg is perfect for the serious home brewer who loves to brew ½ batches, or is just tight on kitchen space. It will fit pretty much anywhere from coolers to backpacks, in your keezer, or in your fridge.

You’ll love the rubber tops on these 2.5 gallon kegs because they have two handles and are easier to stack! It is versatile, travels well and just looks cool!

The quality of these Italian-made cornelius kegs is undeniable. They are welded by laser under inert gas which means there are no nooks or crannies where bacteria can hide. They may cost more than kegs made in China but the quality difference is a perfect batch versus a ruined one. Quality is important because your beer may sit in these kegs for months. If bacteria gets into a bad weld they are going to very hard to kill.

Key Features

  • High quality Italian made ball-lock style kegs with rubber top and bottom
  • Kegs are 15" tall, x 8.25" diameter and weigh 7.5 pounds.
  • Max working pressure of 130 PSI.

Perfect size
I like this size because I don’t have to fully gut my fridge to fit the 5 gallon kegs like these.. I have a smaller full size fridge and I still can use the drawers at the bottom and have one upper shelf.

Good small keg, poor price
If the keg is going to be tossed around I see the need for the rubberized top and bottom, but if not use the torpedo keg

Best 2.5 Gallon Kegs I've Found
I like these so much, I have 6, Plus a couple of the 5 gallon ones for good measure. The only downside is you can't fit 2 high in a standard mini fridge, so it's two kegs at a time max. If they were about an inch shorter you could possibly fit 4 in a mini fridge which would have been amazing.

These are solidly constructed, my first one is 7 years old, gaskets are still good, stainless looks new, no leaks, it's great. I have another similar keg that wasn't made in Italy and you can see the difference in quality. I really can't recommend these highly enough.

Well built keg that is extremely versatile.

I originally purchased this keg to do small batches, but now I see just how versatile it is. I can take it on road trips, use it as a vessel to push line cleaner through my kegerator. If you add the portable CO2 you can use it anywhere. It also fits on the smaller shelf of my kegerator to allow another tap.

Purchased over a year ago and I am very happy with the handy size. I had no idea that I would find so occasions to use it.

This keg is perfect for small batches. I get to brew more often with a smaller keg.

These are great. Very well made. I ended up getting two and they are always in use. I will not hesitate to get a few more when I have some extra cash.

Great quality keg
I already had some of the 5 gallon version of this product and really liked them, so buying this one was an easy decision. This keg is high quality and great to work with. The only problem is that I just own one of them. It would be great to have two so I could split 5 gallon batches to try different dry hopping schedules on the same base beer.

an important component of your brewing arsenal
Makes it easier to deal with 5 gallons. Keg half and bottle the other half, especially if you've got gifts or competitions.
