A homebrew keg stores your beer with a tap handle attached to dispense it. They’re great for parties, camping, and picnics as they’re made in a reasonable size for easy transport. Beer kegs for home use are made in one to two and a half gallon capacities. Some kegs for homebrewing come with kits to make your own beer. There’s even a keg with automated brewing features to take the guesswork out of beer making. Most kegs are made of stainless steel for durability. They need to seal well to keep flavor and carbonation from escaping. Some have a pressure gauge or regulator to monitor and maintain carbonation. The keg also needs to be easy to clean so that flavors don’t transfer to the next batch.
