Description

  • Draw beer from the top of your keg instead of the bottom. The top is always where the clearest beer is!
  • Super helpful when you have to move your keg before serving. Kicked up sediment will remain near the bottom
  • Filter attachment prevents hops or other solids from getting sucked into the dip tube
  • The filter also helps ensure the dip tube stays below the liquid line and doesn't suck CO2 from the headspace
  • Installs on any Ball Lock or Pin Lock keg quickly and easily

With the Torpedo Buoy™ floating dip tube with filter, 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" below the surface of the beer. The Filter helps keep your dip tube clear of any solids or hops ensuring a clear line. It also helps to keep the dip tube well submerged below the liquid line to avoid issues where the dip tube might get out of position and suck CO2 from the headspace. Kick homebrew haze to the curb and start drawing the brightest beer possible. Yeah, Buoy!

We recommend always using the Buoy with the filter, but if you prefer to use the Buoy without the filter attachment, the standard model can be found here.

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
  • Filter Attachment made from HDPE and 304 Stainless Steel mesh

Installation Note: The Torpedo Buoy™'s silicone dip tube is sized to fit all Torpedo Kegs and other 5-gallon or smaller corny kegs. Depending on the size and dimensions of your keg, you may need to shorten the silicone tube for better performance. When installed on your empty keg, you ideally want the Buoy™ to hang freely with just enough length for the end of the dip tube to touch the bottom of the keg.

Nope - Doesn't Work
Does not work. The tube material is too rigid. The intake is constantly pushed above the liquid and all you do is waste CO2.

Does not work as advertised
After a few pints the filter floats to the top and sucks foam and CO2. I had to open my keg, fish the filter out and tie a SS fishing weight to it to get it down into the beer and start pouring again. I won't be purchasing this or using it again, I'm going back to standard dip tubes.
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT, IT'S JUNK!

Didn't work for me.
I used these on my corny kegs and did not like them. I had to transport my kegs for a family Christmas party. They floated on top but since I had some foam on the top they only provided me foam. I replaced them with the original dip tubes.

They may work fine if you are not moving your kegs, but they didn't work for me.

Welded SS Ring on buoy broke, can't reattach tube, filter poor
It goes without saying keg fermenting is best for beers with few very cold-side hops. This filter is not very fine and will let a lot of hop debris in which will clog your keg post/ball lock (happened twice). Also, the metal ring attached to the buoy broke so I had to use some rubber bands to keep the dip tube attached. No idea if those will impact flavor but not really ideal. It struggles to pick up the last half gallon or two in the bottom of your keg (on top of trub) so plan accordingly.

Works as advertised
I installed in on my new torpedo keg. The beer always comes out great from top to bottom. Well worth the investment.
