Why a beginner should consider corny kegs for beer packaging
Determining how finished beer will be packaged is the second most important decision a novice brewer will make after selecting a brewing system and its components. Many start with bottling, usually as a cost-saving measure after an expensive outlay for equipment.
After a batch or two, however, the time-consuming processes of washing and sterilizing bottles, and filling them, has some brewers wishing for a faster, more efficient system.
This article is written with the beginner in mind to help demystify the corny keg by providing some background information, explaining its anatomy and function, and examining some advantages of using them.
The corny keg is a fairly recent invention, known originally as a “beverage transfer tank,” created by the soft drink industry in 1957. Coca-Cola invented a system for restaurants called a “Post-Mix” in which a tank of syrup mixed with water and CO2 for carbonation as the drink dispensed into a cup.
While the first tanks were manufactured by the Firestone & John Wood Company, and later Spartanburg Steel Products, the vast majority were produced by Cornelius, Inc., from Osseo, MN, and so all of these tanks came to be known as “corny kegs” regardless of make.
Homebrewers flocked to these immediately, purchasing surplus tanks and modifying them for beer. It’s purely coincidental that corny kegs hold 5 gallons and the typical homebrew batch is the same volume.
Today, the corny keg is obsolete in the soft drink industry and has been largely replaced by the drink fountain syrup bag-in-box, yet it continues to thrive in home brewing. Many brewers prefer pre-used soft drink kegs as a reliable, cost-efficient alternative to new kegs that are more expensive. Refurbished older tanks are becoming scarce on the market and sell quickly when they appear.
