Set your sights on a brand new Torpedo Keg! The patented, D794,899, sleek all-stainless design represents a new era of homebrew kegs. With features like welded stainless handles, the ability to stack with fittings in place, amazing quality and a great price we think these kegs will become the standard by which other kegs are measured.   

Quality First
The first thing we at MoreBeer! check out is 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. These kegs are machine welded and exceed our standards for quality. The weld quality is possible because these kegs 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!

The extra gallon really helps stop blow outs if you are keg fermenting.
Steve Snider on Jan 6, 2021
Extra gallon of space- enough headspace to ferment a full 5 gallon batch
Mitchell F on Dec 17, 2020
If using to ferment: more headspace. If racking & serving: extra capacity in case the volume is more than expected in the fermenter.

I notice that this 6g is a wider diameter. How will this stack with the other slimline torpedo kegs?
JimDon on Oct 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Fives will not stack on sixes.
Will the 6-gallon Torpedo balllock keg fit inside? It looks like there enough space but you would need to use torpedo ball lock disconnects

KOMOS® Kegerator with Intertap Stainless Steel Faucets
KOMOS® Kegerator with Intertap Stainless Steel Faucets
BEST ANSWER: I have a 3 tap faucet on my Kegerator and I am able to fit (Tightly) 2 Kegs side by side in the back and one centered in the front. Along with a forth 2.5 keg balanced on the back shelf where the C02 usually goes. I am using standard ball lock connectors on the Torpedo They sit below the top rim handle no problem. If you are trying to stack you will not get another on top of the 6 gallon due to height.
Has anyone used this as a fermentation vessel? Seems like it would be a good size for 5 gallon batches.
Rob Jenkins on Dec 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes! I purchased the keg(s) as a fermenter and unitank. I've fermented and then served 5-5.5 gal batches of cider, brown ale, and IPA in these kegs so far with a floating dip tube, and it worked extremely well. The keg does seem to be a bit thinner than my other 5 gal corney kegs, but it doesn't really matter. I fermented a 5.5 gal IPA at 90 degrees with dry Kveik yeast and some fermcap, and only had a small amount of krausen come out of a blowoff tube connected to the gas post. I already purchased a second keg, and plan to buy more to use as fermenters for beers that turn around quickly.
What is the height of this with a ball lock quick disconnect on the posts?
Andrew Simpson on Mar 30, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The handles are still the tallest point with disconnects attached, so still just over 27 inches, 27.25" I believe.
What length of tubing is recommended for the Torpedo 6 gallon keg?

Torpedo Keg Buoy ™ Floating Dip Tube
Torpedo Keg Buoy ™ Floating Dip Tube
BEST ANSWER: I don't use 6 gal kegs, I use 5 gal and they have plenty of length for that. It's about 22" from the top of the tank at the beer outlet to the bottom of the tank. This dip tube lays on the bottom when empty so I would think if your tank is a little longer you would be fine. Note the description says it's 23.5" long tube so you should be able to calculate that against the dimension of your tank. If it isn't long enough you can always buy longer tubing at you beer store and make it your own length,
Cheers, Carl

Going to use for 5 gallon fermentor
Keg was delivered quickly! Looks to be made very well. Held pressure during shipping! If you have used this as a fermentation vessel (5 gallon batch), how much of the dip tube have you cut off to stay out of trub and do a closed transfer into serving keg?

Great for no-chill / pressure fermentation!
I brew my beer, turn off the kettle, and immediately transfer boiling wort into this thing. Let it sit for a day and then pitch yeast and slap a spunding valve on it. Works great and I can brew at higher temps without all the yeast esters. Love it!
Don't forget the heat-resistant gloves!

6 gallon ball lock
6 gallon, slightly taller than the 5ers. Had to make a new collar for the keezer. Over all awesome. 5 or 5½ gallon pressure ferments with plenty of head space

I use these for frermentation
Picked up a couple of these to use for pressure fermentation, and since they aren't too tall I can cold crash them in my kegerator and even serve directly from them depending on the beer. They are a bit loud when the floating dip tubes are banging against the keg walls, but that's to be expected.

Very good quality keg
This keg screams high quality. I bought this as an fermentation vessel in order to still brew 5 gallon batches, it works perfectly for that purpose.

I will eventually replace all my old kegs with torpedos.

Enough headspace for fermenting full 5gal / 19L batches
Perfect cost-effective vessel for pressure fermentation of a full sized 5 gallon batch while leaving enough headspace. Works really well with a floating diptube.

Height is actually 27+ inches
Obviously a great product that screams quality and fills a needed gap for home brewers. My issue is the description this keg is 23 inches tall. It’s 23 inches to where the lid is but 27+ to the top of the handles. I can’t fit it into my fridge at that height. Maybe I missed that detail somewhere? Something to consider when deciding to purchase.
