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" .
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 S 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?
Ivan DeWilde 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.
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.
Can Torpedo kegs safely withstand being filled with hot liquid at a temperature of around 170F? Hot but well below boiling!

BEST ANSWER: Yes, should not be a problem. In the olden days (1990's) many home brewers cut off the top of their 15 gal kegs and used them as mash tuns and boil kettles. Go to brewmagic web site and you can see some of there current boil kettles still have the old keg look to them.
Are these stackable with a Continuous Soda Carbonator Keg Lid KEG455 hooked up on the bottom keg?
Jason Separovic on Apr 18, 2023
BEST ANSWER: My 1.5 gal torpedo keg stacks with the Continuous Soda Carbonator keg lid attached. I am using the Duotight Ball Lock Quick Disconnect (QD) attached to the lid. The top of the QD sits about 1/2 inch below the keg handles/top. With the curve in the bottom of the torpedo kegs, there is plenty of clearance.
How much does a 2.5 gal slimline torpedo keg (KEG427) weigh dry?
Andrew Swenson on Jan 3, 2023
BEST ANSWER: The 2.5 gallon comes in at 7lbs.
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?

Perfect for experimental ciders
Brewed three 1-gallon single-variety apple ciders Fall 2022 and wanted to compare to my main batch blend. This 1.5 gallon keg allowed me to do a fair comparison without having to commit a standard keg for the small volume. Nice quality keg. Might buy a second since they stack so nicely.

REALLY nice little kegs!
Bought two of the Slimline Torpedo kegs at the 2.5 gallon size. They arrived quickly and we're pressurized! Low pressure to be sure but, holding pressure to minimize the likelihood of crush damage and, most likely, to demonstrate integrity with respect to holding pressure. Already have one filled with a small batch Porter…

Mixed bag
* Stainless steel
* Stackable
* Fits my space constraints

* Poor welding jobs (see attached picture)
* Post tolerances too wide. Some are extremely tight. Others work just fine.
Bad weld. Pitting and no polish.

Great keg
On basis of description & reviews I had high expectations about this barrel. I was not disappointed: the Torpedo keg is as great as I hoped it would be. This product radiates quality. The welds are neat, the handles are handy, the steel is good and the various parts work well (like relief valve, lid, seal, disassembly & re-assembly). I have bought three of them already and I will buy even more.

OK but could be better
I bought a 2.5 gal slimline.. it works, but two issues I have are: The build quality could be better--the rolled metal on one of the handles was done a little sloppily but it’s pretty much just cosmetic for someone looking closely, not a common occurrence. Other thing is the posts are really tight when I use my normal plastic QDs that are fine on other kegs. My CO2 gas QD is nearly impossible to get on or off. I've banged my knuckles on the handle more than once, and the force needed sometime is enough to actually start unscrewing the tightened post from the keg. It eventually comes off, but not without some swearing on my part. I may have to get a new gas QD and see if that's better. I do have the torpedo metal QDs, but they will be reserved for my portable arrangement using a mini regulator setup.

No rubber stains
Will need to order more more these things they are awesome! No black rubber stains on hands or equipment. Stack nicely with fittings installed. Lighter than cornies.
