50 Litre Keg – As the name suggests, a 50 Litre Keg holds a gigantic amount of beer – 50 liters or 13.2 gallons. Seen as a common keg size in UK and Europe, the 50 Litre Keg is used by European breweries and hold 140 cans (12 oz) or 105 pints (16 oz) of beer.

UK and Irish keg supply structure – The beer vessel supply structure in the UK and Ireland is quite different, whilst the couplers for kegs have been largely standardised to sankey, grundy and interbrew, a couple of others exist such as UEC and U-Type, however these are much less common.
The kegs themselves are made from stainless steel or aluminium. The standard keg size is 11 imperial gallons (50 litres/88 imperial pints) and the vast majority of keg beers are supplied in this keg size. There are also smaller 30 litre (≈52.7926 imperial pints) kegs usually reserved for more specialist and premium European beers.
A number of manufacturers also produce 18 imperial gallon (81.82 litres/144 imperial pints) and 22 imperial gallon (100 litres/176 imperial pints) kegs, however owing to their size they are not as popular, as manual handling is seen by some to be difficult, and as a result they tend to be used only for large-scale events and bars with high output.

The KegLand Stainless Steel Mini Beer Kegs are specifically designed for home brewing/growler dispensing. They are suited to small batches and suited to people who want to fit them into their home refrigerators. You can naturally carbonate using priming sugars or force carbonate and serve your beer with the optional ball lock lid (item P07, see at right).
They come with a silicone gasket sealed stainless threaded lid, so you can fill them with beer and let them naturally carbonate, or carbonate as needed with the optional P07 ball lock lid. You will be given a chance to buy this lid (you do not need a Ball Lock Lid for every keg) when you put this in your cart.
These fit into a standard domestic refrigerator. The optional Ball Lock lid for these kegs use a flexible silicone dip tube the kegs can also be dispensed on their side or upright. The flexible silicone dip tube of lid P07 is heavier than beer, and will sink to the bottom even if the kegs are on their side.
Kegs are equipped with a 30 PSI relief valve, and have a maximum pressure of 45 PSI. Kegland Mini Kegs use the gold standard acid bath electrolosis to pacify the 304 grade stainless steel making the more resistant to rust than any other mini keg on the market. These are the only mini keg that uses a special robotic technique to weld the kegs from the inside out.
This means KegLand gets a superior welding finish that is more sanitary than any other mini keg available. Although there are many other mini kegs that come from China simply none have the quality and finish as the genuine KegLand minikegs. See the video below for the KegLand welding story.
What are the dimensions of a 20 Litre beer keg?
All the kegs on the marketplace require an A-type coupler. If you have one then all you need to do is add the brew you want to your cart, add the keg bond when checking out and you are good to go. If you don’t have a coupler, we have couplers that connect via push fittings or home brew ball lock connectors! A-type coupler with ball lock and push fittings Kegs are collected from the brewery when you pick up your first brew, so you don’t need to hand over a swap keg when collecting your first full keg. Couplers are posted, however if you are in Sydney and are in dire need please let us know – we can drop off the coupler to the brewery where you are collecting your keg so you can get it all at once.
- Hell yeah, the couplers come with push fitting connectors and with ball lock connectors so they can be used with ball lock connectors.20L Kegs are 57cms tall (69cm with a coupler) and 24cms wide.10L Kegs are 37cms tall (49cm with a coupler) and 24cms wide.
- Dam straight you can, if you want a 10L today and a 20L next time just swap away.
Only catch is that you need to go to a brewery that offers both sizes when doing a change up. Just the size, the same coupler works with the 10L & 20L kegs. So you’ve got a normal fridge you’d like to use. Well the good news is there’s a few options. With the simple set up options, you can just throw everything into a fridge but if you are keen to get your hands dirty then check out the DIY kegerator kits from iKegger or Kegland. There’s no hard and fast rule but you’d ideally want to drink beer and other alcoholic beverages within a couple of months; Kombucha can stay good for 6 months. So if you normally have a 6 pack in a week then go the 20L keg, otherwise test out the 10L first – you can always swap the 10L for a 20L later or vice versa.
It boils down to the size of your fridge. If you have heaps of room then go the tap, it’s easier to clean, fun to use and the sexiest option. If you only have enough room for the keg then go with the gun, it is super fun too and gives you the ability to stand and pour even if the keg is down low.20L Kegs are 57cms tall (69cm with a coupler) and 24cms wide.
The 20L kegs have 53 cans in them, so 2.2 cases.10L Kegs are 37cms tall (49cm with a coupler) and 24cms wide. The 10L kegs equate to 26 cans in them, so basically a case. Tip : best to allow a bit of extra headroom above the keg for wiggling things in and getting your hand on the tap.
On the tap front, the black handle can be cut or grinded down if needed. The GasGuyz make it ridiculously easy but if they don’t deliver to your hood the other options are a Soda Stream cylinder from Coles or Woolies. Another good option, especially if you’ve got a cylinder you need filled is Speed Gas – they also sell cylinders too.
Kegs are collected from the brewery when you pick up your first brew, so you don’t need to hand over a swap keg when collecting your first full keg. Couplers are posted either with your keg if getting delivered or separately, however if you are in Sydney and are in dire need please let us know – we can drop off the coupler to the brewery where you are collecting your keg so you can get it all at once. Wondering where to get CO2 gas, or where to get your CO2 cylinder filled or replaced then check out the Gas Guyz or Speed Gas. The Gas Guyz make getting gas ridiculously easy – order by midnight and have the cylinder delivered the next day. If the Gas Guyz aren’t in your hood yet then check out Speed Gas; the guys offer legendary support. didn’t find what you need? To start using KegSwappa all you need from us is the swap keg, so if the set ups above don’t turn you on check out what is sold by the gear gurus below. “Can’t rate these guys highly enough.fantastic with original setup process & ongoing support is exceptional.

04.06.2020 Mini-casks and mini-kegs have been one of the most popular ways to enjoy beer at home in 2020, but what is a mini-cask, and is it different to a mini-keg? We’ve put together this wee blog to help clear things up in terms of what we do and how we package our beers, so you know what to look for when you’re ordering – keep in mind that other breweries might have slightly different definitions – this is our guide of what to expect when ordering from Fyne Ales online shop. What’s the difference between mini-cask and mini-keg? On the outside, mini-casks and mini-kegs are the same – we use the same recyclable five-litre vessel for both, but the difference lies in how we process the beer that we put inside the big cans. Mini-casks are small versions of the 9-gallon casks we send to pubs, filled exactly the same way with the same beer and live yeasts that give it a soft carbonation (or ‘conditioning’) to the beer.
Mini-kegs are filled with five litres of filtered, pre-carbonated beer, so they require less time to settle, but they also need to be consumed a lot quicker once opened to enjoy the beer at its best. In the same way that we have beers that we only sell in cask (Avalanche, Hurricane Jack, Highlander etc) and some beers we only sell in keg (Fyne Lager, Workbench and Easy Trail), we offer both mini-casks and mini-kegs depending on which format best suits the beer.
Some of our classics lend themselves to the soft carbonation that comes with conditioning on live yeasts, which is why we fill our mini-casks in the exact same way as we fill full-size casks for pubs. And some of our beers taste better a bit colder and a bit more fizzy – which is why we also offer mini-kegs of filtered, carbonated beers.
Whatever you choose, mini-casks and kegs should have at least six weeks of shelf life on them when they arrive at your door (check the sticker on the bottom for exact dates), so if you’re planning ahead, don’t worry about ordering too early – just keep them somewhere cool and dark until you want to use them.
The only exception to this may be small-batch specials, which are not filled as regularly and may have shorter best before dates – we will endeavour to list this on the product page of the online shop. Mini-Casks – In Detail Mini-casks are not pre-carbonated, but instead are packaged with live yeast which continues to gently ferment the beer inside the cask, creating a soft fizz; this process is known as conditioning, Most of the conditioning takes place in the time between filling up the casks at the brewery and arriving on your doorstep, but because of the live yeast, they require at least 24 hours to allow the yeast to settle to the bottom of the cask before opening.
During the colder months, you may find you get a little more conditioning in the beer if it’s kept at 10-12°C for a few days before opening, but make sure that if you’re moving the beer somewhere cooler between conditioning and drinking, that you give it the full 24 hours to settle again. Once the yeast has settled, follow the instructions on the back of the mini-cask (or below) and enjoy your perfect cask beer at home, remembering to leave the last half pint in the bottom (as that’s where all the yeast will have settled), and using within three days of opening Once you have opened the mini-cask for the first time, it will slowly lose carbonation as the fizz escapes (through the vent or through pouring), so the quicker your drink the mini-cask (responsibly), the better it will be.
Some mini-cask beers are brewed with a combination of hops that mean it’s intentionally hazy. This means that even when all the yeast has settled to the bottom of the mini-cask, there will still be some soft haze to the beer – this is perfectly normal and the beer is completely fine to drink.
- Rotate the tap (front) in the direction of arrows to the horizontal position.
- Pull the tap out, away from the body of the mini-cask, until it stops.
- Press the red button on the tap to dispense beer into your favourite glass – it will be quite powerful at first, but slow down quickly.
- To increase flow of beer as it slows, carefully open the air-release (top).
- When you’ve finished pouring, push the tap back into the mini-keg and close the air-release (top) to help retain fizz – trying not to move the cask too much as you do.
Mini-Kegs – In Detail Mini-kegs are filled with filtered, carbonated beer with no live yeast – this means that beer is fizzier and doesn’t require as much time to settle, but also means it doesn’t keep as long once opened – think of it as a bit like a big bottle of fizzy juice – if it’s a bit shaken up, best to give it a little while before opening, and the longer it’s open, the flatter it gets.
Mini-kegs are definitely best shared at a socially distant gathering – we recommend consuming them within 24 hours of opening and 8.8 pints in a day is probably a bit much for one person to enjoy responsibly. While our couriers DHL and APC are generally brilliant, we can’t always ensure the mini-kegs haven’t gotten a little shaken up in transit, so when they arrive on your doorstep, get them in the fridge and give them a good few hours before opening – your first half-pint is likely to be a bit foamy even with a chance to chill, but if you open it straight away your first pour will be extra lively.
In terms of how to pour your mini-keg, DO NOT FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE BACK – these are for mini-cask, and instead there should be a sticker taking you to this blog (hello!) and you can find mini-keg instructions below or an illustrated version here.
So far, we’ve only packaged Fyne Lager in mini-keg format, as it’s the only beer in our keg range that isn’t available in bottle or can, but we’re looking at potential Easy Trail mini-kegs for the future – let us know if that’s something you’d be interested in over on social media ( Facebook / Twitter / Instagram ).
- Slowly open air-release (top) by turning 90 degrees, allowing excess carbonation to escape. It may hiss and foam a bit, so maybe have a cloth ready just in case – wait until it stops. If you don’t do this, you’re going to be pouring pints of foam for a while.
- Rotate the tap (front) in the direction of the arrows until horizontal.
- Pull the tap (front) out, away from the body of the mini-keg until it stops.
- Press the red dispense button on the tap to pour beer- the first half pint might be foamy, let it settle and it’s good to go.
- When you’ve finished pouring, push the tap back into the mini-keg and close the air-release (top) to help retain carbonation.
So there you have it, the full lowdown on our mini-casks and mini-kegs – not too complicated, eh? Thanks to everyone for their ongoing support and orders – we’ll see you soon with more blogs, and in the meantime, be sure to hit us up on social media ( Facebook / Twitter / Instagram ).

Alternate Names: Corny Keg, Homebrew Keg, Soda Keg The tall, cylindrical (or Corny Keg) was originally developed (and still used) to store, distribute, and dispense soda like Pepsi or Coke. However, with a five-gallon capacity (the size of a typical homebrew batch) and a design that’s easy to fill, clean, and maintain, Corny Kegs have become very popular with homebrewers who want to skip the process of bottling beer and enjoy their brew on draft. Most Cornelius Kegs utilize a style connection, but some older models still feature a pin-lock style.

The main difference is that this style doesn’t utilize a ball or pin-lock connection system but a traditional keg valve that requires a for dispensing.
⅙ Barrels (or sixtels, as they’re often called) have become increasingly popular because many craft brewers offer their small-batch experiments only in kegs of this size.
