Premium new ball lock keg rated to 100-130psi working pressure (tested for 195psi pressure) and are made using a robotic orbital welding machine and super smooth welding marks making them easier to clean.
These Corny Beer kegs are also passivated and pickled giving them a matte finish, to ensure superior rust protection (SS304 steel used). Far superior than any second hand or economy kegs on the market.
Black rubber handles and base allows easier transportation and fewer scuffs on the floor.

Corny Keg Contains:

  1. Gas and liquid ball lock posts for easy attachment to your kegerators/keezer.
  2. PRV (pressure release valve) Lid for easy cleaning. It is wide enough that you can manually open and clean the base of the keg.
  3. Separate gas and liquid dip tubes. (unlike growlers and A-type commercial kegs) separate tubes make it easy to attach and maintain.
  4. Dual rubber handles make them stackable and helps in easy storage.
  5. Being thin and long, it is easier to do temperature control and make lagers or low-temperature brews.

  1. With an ability to withstand 120 PSI pressure, these kegs are ideal for pressure fermenting.
  2. Its tall boy design increases the surface area making the fermentation temperature uniform.
  3. Unlike Glass Carboy, they don’t shatter and make a mess.
  4. Unlike Glass Demijohns they have a wide neck that makes them easy to clean, replace, and repair.

4 Different Types of kegs:

  1. Commercial brewery kegs short fat kegs with A-type attachments
  2. Growler that is relatively difficult to clean (narrow mouth)
  3. Pin lock kegs also called Soda Syrup Cans which are locally made.
  4. Ball-lock kegs with 4 openings (gas, liquid, PRV Valve, PRV lid for filling/cleaning) – which Arishtam Sells

Please buy compatible attachments and fittings for your system. We also stock ball lock posts for those trying to migrate from pin-lock to ball lock mechanisms. Use keg connects for beer lines.

Please don’t use strong acids and chlorine bleach to clean the kegs. This damage the rubber and tight fittings needed to pressurize the cylinder.

Delivery mode:

Stainless steel fermenter kegs can be dispatched via Indian speed post only.

We do stock ball lock connects, replacement posts, and gaskets. However, you can get CO2, regulators, etc locally from the soda stream/fountain lemonade vendors.

Order No 4940, Received Keg today. Slightly Disappointed because of minor dent on the side. Dent caused most probably on transport. No cause of major concern. Did a leak test with water, found the seals holding up. Need the disconnectors for putting keg in use. Disconnectors ordered thru other site , stuck because of covid disruption. Nice quality SS. Probably a 304, Carried out Magnetic test and found satisfactory. Overall a good product. Kuddos for the store manager Ankur.

    These are good quality corny kegs. Make sure to order extra o rings for keg posts as they fit well with the ball lock connectors better than factory one.
