Description

Torpedo Kegs too wide? Want to squeeze another keg in your kegerator? The patented design, D794,899, of the new Slimline Torpedo Keg is 9% more slim than the classic model with all the same great features. Coming in at about 1/4" thinner than standard Ball Lock Cornelius Kegs, this keg has welded stainless handles and the ability to stack kegs with fittings still in place all at a great price.

Quality First
Here at MoreBeer! we love nothing more than quality interior welds. We've spent a decade rejecting kegs made overseas because the interior welds have never met our standards. If a weld is not perfect and shows evident burn marks along with nooks and crannies it cannot be sanitized effectively. Torpedo kegs are machine welded and exceed our standards for quality. This weld quality is possible because these kegs are made by an ISO certified commercial keg manufacturer.

Cool Features
Torpedo Kegs were designed to stack with Ball Lock quick disconnects in place and serving which is a cool feature for some brewers who have vertical space in their refrigerator. We also like the rolled stainless steel handles. They are comfortable to grab and will never come off like some rubber handles can over time. “In” and “Out” is etched near the keg posts for easy identification which is very handy when you are connecting lines in a refrigerator or kegerator and trying not to make a mistake. 

Overall for the price and quality, along with free shipping from MoreBeer!, the Torpedo Keg is an amazing value!

What is the exact stacked height of two 2.5 gal slimline torpedo kegs?
Max Rudolph on Nov 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The exact height within tape measure tolerance is 30-3/8" .
does anyone know what size posts these kegs have? I need to replace the gas side? thanks!
Tim Goodman on Jan 23, 2018
What is the actual volume of the 5 gallon keg (not the nominal volume which is 5 gallons)? How does it compare to a traditional ball lock 5 gallon keg? Do the slimline and regular torpedo kegs have the same actual volume?

BEST ANSWER: After purchasing several of these, I made some measurements of the capacity of two "5 gallon" slimline kegs using a high quality calibrated graduated cylinder. Sadly, in each case the total capacity (to the rim) is only 4.845 US gallons, which means a practical operating capacity of something like 4.75 gallons or less. If you are expecting to keg 5 gallons, you're going to be at least a couple of pints short in each keg.
Are these kegs made in the usa?
Richard Hartford on Mar 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Richard - These kegs are made in China.
Wll the slimline versions stack on a regular size torpedo Keg and or vice Versa?
Chris Sager on Jan 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Chris - The Slimline Torpedo kegs are compatible with other Slimline Torpedo kegs but will not be compatible with the regular Torpedo kegs, vice versa.
What's the size of two 2.5 gallon kegs stacked, either Slimline or Regular?
GenX on May 12, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Slimline kegs come in 1 gallon (11 inches tall), 2.5 gallons (15.5 inches tall) and 5 gallon (25.5 inches tall). All of them have a one inch tall base rim which stacks into the upper rim of another slimline keg. So when stacked a 1 gallon plus a 2.5 gallon is (11 inches + 15.5 inches - 1 inch =25.5 inches tall. So 1 gal plus 1 gal would be 11 + 11-1 = 21 inches tall.
Have you considered offering this with a hang tab lid, so customers who want those don't end up with two lids per keg?
Thomas Parshall on Dec 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Maybe harder to sterilize hand tab lids?
Will this fit on the ball lock fittings on the Torpedo Kegs? I bought something similar from Amazon and there seems to be a slight difference in the connection. Before I jump on this one I wanted to make sure it will connect correctly.

BEST ANSWER: Raymond - Our Torpedo kegs carry standard ball lock fittings. This should work fine.
Are these still stack-able when using Flow Control Ball Lock Disconnect Beverage Out - Flare

BEST ANSWER: If you buy the torpedo (low profile) disconnects then yes

Rough
Received mine an hour ago. Opened it up and thought I might have gotten a used one. I know these things will eventually not look new, but I thought it was my job to bang it around and give it a bunch of scratches. It looks like its been through a war.

Would NOT recommend.
Lots and lots of scratches and scuffs

Fit well in my 3 tap kegerator
I have the Kosmos three tap kegerator and these guys fit well. There really isn't much to say about them, new corny kegs. They ship under pressure so don't forget to let it out before you try to open them up. I'd say if nothing comes out from the pressure release, you've got a leaky keg! HAHA. Purchased three to match my three tap kegerator.

Keg Choice
Very pleased with the kegs. Easy to handle and stack. I will definitely choose them again. The only reason I would not have a Torpedo Keg as my next one is if someone gave me a keg they didn't want -- probably because they just bought a Torpedo Keg!

Nicely built lightweight kegs
These are prefect for home brew. They are not heavy duty like commercial kegs which are expected to be knocked around. So you don't knock these around.

First impressions...
Just received my 2.5 gallon and 5 gallon kegs. So they have not seen any beer yet. My first thoughts are these look great. They were packaged well and have no damage from shipping. They were also pressurized so that was nice. Quality of these are very nice. Handles feel great in hands and more rigid that the rubber ones. No more black marks. Welds are nice inside and out. Posts look good. The lid and pressure relief look fine. They stack nicely.

Now for my only somewhat issues so far. The volumes are misleading. Filled these each using a scale. Filled them with 70 degree water to 8.33 lbs/per gallon. The 2.5 gallon labeled on keg as 2.6 gallon will hold 2.5 gallons right up the gas dip tube. The 5 gallon keg labeled on keg as 5 gallons will not hold 5 gallons. To the brim it’s around 4.8 gallons (which was also mentioned in one of the questions about actual capacity). Now it’s not a huge concern to me as I don’t normally overbuild my recipes to account for losses anyways but it would be nice if it holds the listed amount. Another thing is the liquid dip tube is straight and it goes down into the small ring around where the keg bottom is convex so I could see having some issues if the beer isn’t super clear when transferring. Maybe a few pints of cloudy pours. I guess you could shorten them slightly or I’m curious if a curved dip tube could be made to sit directly into the center of the bottom which would keep anything that would settle out around the outside edge.
