Commercial Style Beer Kegs

Post by Dr Funkenstein » Mon Jan 26, 2004 2:43 pm

I've acquired a commercial style 1/4 keg. Is there any equipment that I as a homebrewer can purchase that would allow me to fill that keg?
Thanks, for any input.

you need a coupler

It can be filled through a coupler (the gizmo that attaches to the top of the keg to dispence the beer). You will need the co2 type not the air pump type commonly used at parties. There are several different types of couplers. You will have to find out which type your keg requires.

Cleaning and sanitizing the keg will likely be a bigger problem than filling.

Check out the keg parts at
They have a wide assortment of commercial parts as well as stuff for cornelius kegs. Then give their techs a call and tell them your situation, they should be able to help you piece something together.
