Description

With the Torpedo Buoy™ floating dip tube, you'll be pouring the clearest beer possible from first pint to last! As your beer sits at low temperatures, more and more haze particles settle out to the bottom of the keg. This means the clearest beer in the keg is always at the top. The Buoy™ uses a stainless float to position the silicone dip tube just 1 inch below the surface of the beer. Kick homebrew haze to the curb and start drawing the brightest beer possible. Yeah, Buoy!

Installs on any Ball Lock or Pin Lock keg quickly and easily. Simply remove your bev out post and replace the long metal dip tube with the provided 3" metal dip tube. Slide one end of the silicone tubing over the 3" dip tube and the other end of the tubing over the metal tube connected to the float. The silicone tubing is sized for 5-gallon kegs, but you can cut it shorter to use on 1.5 or 2.5-gallon kegs. Also compatible with the Torpedo Keg Depth Charge series 10 & 15 gallon kegs!

Specifications:

  • 3" Stainless Dip Tube
  • 1/4" ID Silicone Tubing (23.5" long)
  • Ball Float Made from 304 Stainless Steel

(1) Looking for a way to replace fining with gelatin (2) I want to replace my cut-down dip tube I use in my sour beers with fruit additions and IPA's with dry hop additions in the keg.

It seems like a really good idea to get clean beer right from the start. We'll see!
Barry R on May 16, 2020
These things are great for cold brew coffee and fermenting in keg. Sludge from cold brew coffee would clog dip tube on standard corny. Yeast cake from fermenting would cause same issue.

Can this be used with any Corny keg that uses a dip tube?
Edmond Flores on Nov 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Edmond, correct! you'd just replace the existing dip tube with the 3" Stainless Dip Tube.
Does the plastic tube impart any off flavors?
Cole Christian on Jul 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I haven't noticed any off flavors, but one thing I do note is that keeping the tube below the liquid can be problematic sometimes, i.e. part/all of what comes out the tap is co2, and you occasionally have to tap the keg to get things straightened out. This is especially true when/if you fill the keg with sanitizer and purge.
Do you need to use a hose clamp to attach the tubing to the dip-tube?
Brendan ONeill on May 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No. It slips securely over the end of the dip tube. Not having it clamped makes it much easier to get on and off for cleaning and reduces possible contamination from the unnecessary hardware (clamp) inside the keg.
Can you pressure fill the keg with this attached?
James Witterschein on Apr 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I’ve done it twice now without issue, so I’m going to say yes. Use low pressure for the transfer and it works fine.
If used with a torpedo keg would this allow pouring with the keg in a horizontal orientation (laid “down” on a standard residential refrigerator shelf)?
benjamin johnston on Jun 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: As the other answers have noted there would be a bit more loss at the bottom of the keg since your float may be an inch or so off the bottom and when the keg is on its side the inch of vertical dead space would equate to a larger volume of beer than if the keg were upright. Otherwise this is not a problem at all. As another reply mentioned it would also be best to keep your gas fitting at the 12 o'clock position so you don't contaminate that.
Do you have to cut silicone tube for 3 and 1 gallon kegs? Thanks.
From_LV on Dec 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Ann, yes we recommend that you cut the silicone tubing for kegs smaller than 5 gallons.
Can I buy the 3” dip tube separately?
Ryan Schmich on Nov 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ryan, the dip tube is not sold separately.

Floating dip tube fix
Like others have said I had the issue where the beer line is floating above the float ball causing the line to pull C02. This caused the keg to blow foam like the keg is empty. I fixed this issue by adding a stainless nut over the beer line to add weight. This added weight ensures the beer line is at the bottom of the float ball and always in beer. Now the dip tube is working like a champ.
July 25, 2020
These are great and now I use them for all of my kegs. Let’s me serve and use my kegs as secondary fermenters at the same time without another transfer, reducing oxidation risk and cleaning. I recommend trimming the tube to length for smaller kegs.

Great idea and keeps your beer very clear. Easy to install and clean.

Works...for half the keg
The metal ball needs to be waited. About halfway through your keg you're going to be pouring out CO2, not beer.

Easy to install. Does what it’s supposed to.
Easy to install. A great idea. Keeps beer clear from the first pour. Just make sure you have some type of one way valve somewhere in the gas Line to prevent beer from backing up into your CO2 regulator.

It worked.
Set up was easy enough and it worked as described. Didn’t have to run off any sediment when tapping keg as with traditional dip tube. Poured clear from the first pint.

Works great - No finings needed
Drawing from the top of your keg allows all residuals to drop to bottom so your first pint is clear and perfect. After one test I changed over all my kegs to the floating dip tube.

I would purchase again without any question.

Poor design
Just sucked CO2 not beer. Should have returned it. As other reviews have noted, the ball needs to be weighted.

I dry hopped in my keg an ounce and it clogged the line. This little guy saved me from re-racking since I didn't have an auto siphon. Worked like a charm.
