Imagine this…. you’re out camping with friends, and one of your buddies says he would love to have a cold brew. Then just picture the looks on their faces as you pull your brand new Cornelius Keg out of your cooler, full of your rich home brew!

This 2.5 gallon corny keg is perfect for the serious home brewer who loves to brew ½ batches, or is just tight on kitchen space. It will fit pretty much anywhere from coolers to backpacks, in your keezer, or in your fridge.

You’ll love the rubber tops on these 2.5 gallon kegs because they have two handles and are easier to stack! It is versatile, travels well and just looks cool!

The quality of these Italian-made cornelius kegs is undeniable. They are welded by laser under inert gas which means there are no nooks or crannies where bacteria can hide. They may cost more than kegs made in China but the quality difference is a perfect batch versus a ruined one. Quality is important because your beer may sit in these kegs for months. If bacteria gets into a bad weld they are going to very hard to kill.

Key Features

  • High quality Italian made ball-lock style kegs with rubber top and bottom
  • Kegs are 15" tall, x 8.25" diameter and weigh 7.5 pounds.
  • Max working pressure of 130 PSI.

More kegging space fore larger batches that may not require full 5 gallon keg.

How tall is this keg when hooked up to gas and liquid lines (ie: how much vertical space in a refrigerator is needed)?
Ben G on Aug 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I'd say you need to allow yourself at least 16", however that won't allow much space for maneuvering your hands or tools or the ability to install or remove the gas/beer line disconnects while the keg is in the refrigerator. It's 15" to the top of the keg (at top of the handles) and my disconnects when installed come right up to that level. To minimize potentially crimped lines you'd want to give yourself another inch, and if you want to be able to work easily on the disconnects and lines you'd need another inch on top of that. There may be types of disconnects that could enable you to gain back an extra inch, but I have not used them. The geometry of your fridge or keezer may also affect how your lines run. I'd stick with 16" minimum, and 17" would be adequate for any situation I have encountered. Hope this helps.

Very Nice!
These Italian made kegs are very high quality. The 2.5 gallon size is my personal favorite because they fit in just about any kitchen sink for a good scrubbing.

Great size
I love these, they are easier to carry around, they're a better size for a party of 10-15 people (tailgate) and if still like to bottle a few beers this is a great size for the rest of the batch, or what I do is fill this up first then bottle

Work for me
I have bought 4 of these over the years and generally prefer them to the 5 gallon ones. They are easier to lift and handle.They can be stored where the big one can't, even in the refrigerator . Quality is excellent and it seems to me better than my 5 gallon torpedo. Of course I'm increasing my kegging costs, and these aren't cheap to begin with, and you have to change your keg more often, but these are still worth it to me.

Nice Keg
These kegs are very well made. They seal and hold pressure just like they are supposed to. I have run two different brews through them and have only used a small amount of CO2. Beer tastes better than same batch from a bottle. I'm very happy I decided to start kegging my brew. They are also very easy to clean with 5 STAR PBW cleaner.

Well built keg, love the size and handles
Just kegged a DIPA into it for the first time today (had some issues, but totally unrelated to the keg). Seems really well made, and holds pressure, at least up to the 30 PSI I'm force carbing overnight at. Excited to drink the beer!

Note that the posts are a different size from my other kegs (AIH 2.5 gallon and Cannonball) -- no major issue, but had to use an adjustable wrench, and had some clearance issues with the rubber. Just means I'll need to actually get deep socket ratchets in the right size.

Will buy another if they go on sale again (the AIH keg seems very close to the quality, so I don't think it's worth the price difference at full retail, but this was worth if for a deal of the day)!

Quality Italian made equipment. Great finish.
Nice and compact, easy to take to the park and get buzzed on home brew.

Perfect size
I like this size because I don’t have to fully gut my fridge to fit the 5 gallon kegs like these.. I have a smaller full size fridge and I still can use the drawers at the bottom and have one upper shelf.
