Do you mean 3 gallon?

5 gallon is almost 19L


Ebay has 2 x 3 gallon kegs at the moment, i think its from a bloke in Qld.

Search "keg" on ebay.com.au

Depends on the people that are bidding and what they are prepared to pay.
I've bought two on Ebay. From memory, one was $90 and the other was $110.
They don't come along that often these days so I reckon you'd be lucky to get them for under $100.
If I was bidding and really wanted one I'd be prepared to pay $150. I don't need another one though.

yeah ive just got one as a buy-now item for 145... im pretty desperate for one. and this was the only place ive seen them. the dude even said that he hasnt seen any in ages and suspects hes one of the last to stock them. hence the high price i guess...

the 3gal kegs always go for much more than the 5gal due to the small number available.
Tom Hargraves sells brand new ones on ebay.

Have you tried ringing Craig Deacon of Kegging Systems in Sydney a ring? He may have some.

Do keep checking the Brewers Discount site. They may come across another source of second hand ones in the future.

I agree with POL. I suggest it would be even better if you spend a few dollars and ring Terry at Brewers Discount to see if he has any 3 galls lying around, and the likelihood of anymore becoming available.

what a bummer.
at least i got one organised. i managed to get a hold of some 33gm co2 bulbs.. (yes 33, not 32) i dunno if it'll fit the little gadget but. probably wont, but the price was right :)

all the catering places i rang about the bulbs seem to sell the 8gm ones... are they ok to use? or they run out too quick?

8gm. CO2 is about 4 litres of gas so in theory you will need 5X8=40 gm. gas. In practice, I would get away with four of them if I sugar carbonated the keg and knocked at least the last half off in one session. I guess some of the dissolved CO2 did some work. The problem is if you only have a few litres left sitting in the keg the beer will lose gas unless you maintain head pressure. If you have 15litre of head space to hold at 100kpa., you will have 30litre or 15 gm. of gas sitting there.
Christmas is coming, set yourself up with at least a sodastream setup. A couple of hundred bucks will get you close. How many sparklet bulbs will that buy you?

um, this isnt for a 19L keg Tony... dont know if you read the earlier posts. its just for a 3gal keg. i already have a soda-stream setup for my 19L.

Speaking of the soda-stream setup. do you guys use a regulator on them also? im getting sick of disconnecting my main regulator off my big cyl. are there smaller size regs avail?
