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.

This is the third one I've purchased I like to pour beer from the top down it helps with anything that may be in the beer it stays in the bottom not my beer.

It seems like a really good idea to get clean beer right from the start. We'll see!

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.

Better to start with clear beer and work your way down to the dregs.

Drinking beer from top of the keg means cleaner beer sooner genius

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.
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, you don’t need to. Since the keg is under pressure and the tube is connected to your out, there’s no concern of pressure “blowing off” an unconnected tube.

That said, it made me feel more comfortable to put a hose clamp on it, but then again you’re putting that hose clamp in your beer.
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.
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.

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.

Flawed design
This is a good idea, but the product is poorly designed. The end of the tube needs to be weighted to keep it under the fluid level. I had to take both of mine off and go back to stock dip tubes until I come up with a way to solve the design flaw.

Clear Beer NOW!
Used one of these numbers for the first time on a keg of Double IPA that had 15 oz total hops, 7 of which were dry hops. Fermented with the less than flocculant US-05. After 5 days in the keg it was pouring as clear as a commercial beer. I’m sold!

Awesome item
Works like a charm , I wanted to make sure it worked doing pressure transfer and it worked perfect.
I bought it initially because hops kept clogging the dip tube, hooked this up and was able to drink the whole keg. I opened the keg and there was about 12oz in the bottom. Great product

No More Clogged Poppet Valves
My first use is on a very hoppy NEIPA with keg 4 oz dry hops and it has worked great. No clogged poppet valves or sediment pickup.

Chris - So frustrating have to clean those out all the time. Thanks for the review.

Good Overall
This definitely does what it describes and keeps the trub out of the beer while working down the keg. It can be slightly annoying to disassemble, clean and reassemble, but it's worth it for the overall benefits. One thing of note, is that you may have to tilt the keg a bit toward the end to get the float to settle on the sides instead of the dome in the center of the bottom of the keg in order to get the last of your good beer before the trub.

Extremely disappointed
Halfway down the keg, the tube surfaces next the float and just channels CO2 out of the keg.
