Corny Keg

Use of exclusive headsPin-Lock and Ball-Lock / Reusable barrel

Cornelius Barrel also known as Corney or Soda Barrel is a metal container originally used by the soft drink industry, it can be used to store and dispense homemade soda and home brew. They use their own connectors with two conduits, one of them for CO2, which in this case is in contact with the beer, and the other for the beer outlet directly to the tap.o.

The barrel is a stainless steel cylinder that can hold a maximum of 9 bars of pressure. There are three openings in the barrel: a large central hole that, by design, can only be opened when the barrel is not pressurized, and two valve ports that only open when a hose with an appropriate head is attached to them. The central opening is used for filling and cleaning the keg, while the two valves are used for dispensing the beverage. Also at the top is a pressure relief valve that is normally identified by a circular ring as a key ring.).

Two metal tubes are attached to the valves inside the barrel. The "gas-in" valve has a short tube, which does not reach the liquid. The "out" valve has a long tube, a "dip tube" that reaches the bottom of the barrel. When pressurized gas, usually carbon dioxide and sometimes nitrogen, is introduced into the "gas-in" port, it pushes the beer into the bottom of the keg, through the "liquid-out" valve toward the tap. Cornelius kegs are most commonly used by craft brewers and homebrewers as an alternative to bottling their beer, as these kegs are easier to fill, clean and maintain compared to industry standard beer kegs.ria.
