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!

With the optional Floating Dip Tube Filter, you can prevent hop material and other solids from ever entering the dip tube. A great upgrade accessory if you like to dry hop or add other additions directly to your keg while serving.

Specifications:

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

They work best for big hoppy brews, you just have to shake the keg sometimes because C02 foam comes out of the tap insteed of beer.

can this be used in a sankey keg?
Jacob Bryant Fleener on Nov 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No
Does the plastic tube impart any off flavors?
Cole Christian on Jul 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No it does not. Just like the hose the delivers the beer from keg to tap doesn’t either. I have had the tube stick to the side of the keg two times which then the ball does not float properly. I have them in 4 kegs. No more getting the crud off the bottom of the keg. I’ve never considered going back to the fixed tube.
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.
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 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.
Can you put hot wort to ferment in the keg with this tube?
Jonathan Peter Lijoi on Aug 30, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn’t trust this with boiling temp. Maaaybe 150F and below?
Can you use these Keg Buoy Floating Dip Tubes with the SS Brewtech Keg Washer?

BEST ANSWER: I would assume so...There is nothing that would prohibit this. The keg is cleaned upside down so the floating ball would rest just inside OR outside the keg. Just make sure the hose attached to the ball does not kink.
Do you have to cut silicone tube for 3 and 1 gallon kegs? Thanks.
FromLV L on Dec 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, want to make sure it’s just long enough to reach the bottom of the keg
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.

This thing is killer
As the name states, the dip tube floats near the top of the keg. It doesn't lay around in the muck at the bottom of the keg. The first beer is clear and so is the last.. They are in all my kegs!

Failure.
Great idea. However, second time using it... it just sat on top and pulled Co2 requiring me to pull the floater off to drink my beer. Will toss in trash and go back to the dependable way!

Works great!
I had some dry hop debris in my keg that was clogging my dip tube. I installed this floating dip tube in another keg and transferred my beer with the hop debris to the new keg. The beer is flowing great! No clogs!

This is a new thing since I brewed last almost 10 years ago. Love it !
I really like the floating dip tube design. The length is perfect for 5 gallon corney and torpedo kegs and a shade too long for the 7 gallon fermzilla fermenter but too long is ok.

Great accessory for your keg
This product works great. You will need to remove the out post and remove the dip tube and replace it with the smaller piece they provide. Then all you have to do is attach the ball float to the tubing on one end and connect the silicone tubing to the post on the other end. I have a smaller keg so I had to cut the silicone tubing to properly fit but it was no hassle. Pulls beer from the top and works excellent in tandem with the dip tube filter attachment.
