The new shorter profile 4L Keg, under 330mm in height, fits in most Esky Coolers and can be dispensed while lying on its side.

Keep oxygen-sensitive beverages fresher for longer with Oxebar's multilayer Kegs. While competitors' PET containers preserve freshness for just 3 - 4 months, the Oxbar Kegs maintain it for up to 12 months.

Additional Information:

This affordable, reusable plastic Keg is the ideal solution for storing your Homebrew in a smaller container compared to traditional 19L Corny Kegs. The compact Oxebar 4L size is lightweight, convenient, and perfect for sharing beverages with friends.

The Oxebar 4L Keg is lightweight and compact, featuring superior oxygen barrier properties with three times better (less) gas transmission than traditional PET plastics. This makes it perfect for storing Beer or other oxygen-sensitive carbonated and non-carbonated beverages.

General Types of PET:

Straight PET:

Straight PET is plain PET without any additives to combat oxygen transmission. This type is often used in short-term fermentation vessels or in bottles for beverages like Coca-Cola and other soft drinks. These containers are designed for high turnover, meaning the flavor of the contents remains unaffected by oxygen transmission for up to 1 - 2 months.

Oxebar Blended PET:

Oxebar Mono is a PET polymer blend that incorporates several polymers to significantly improve gas barrier properties. Compared to standard Straight PET, Oxebar Blended PET reduces oxygen ingress and CO loss, extending the shelf life of your beverage by up to three times. We recommend this product for storing beer in kegs for up to 3 - 4 months.

Oxebar Multi-Layer PET:

Oxebar Multi-Layer PET features a triple layer of PET and oxygen barrier components, which drastically slow down oxygen transmission through the surface. This type is highly recommended for long-term storage of oxygen-sensitive beverages, keeping them fresh for up to 10 - 12 months.

Periodic Hydrotesting Requirement:

All pressure vessels should be hydrotested periodically. This is a straightforward process and not something to be feared. We recommend that this container be pressure tested every 2 years up to 6 Bar.

Follow these instructions to hydrotest the Oxebar Keg:

1. Remove the RED PRV (Pressure Relief Valve) and fit a GREY PRV (you can borrow one from a 19L Keg).

2. Fill the Keg completely with water. DO NOT skip this step.

3. Use a bike pump, CO² regulator, air compressor, or any other pressure source to pressurize the Keg to 6 Bar.

4. Maintain the pressure at 6 Bar for 1 minute.

5. Release the pressure and immediately remove the GREY PRV, replacing it with the RED PRV.

The test should be conducted with the Keg and water at room temperature, between 15 - 30°C.

PLEASE NOTE:

DO NOT EXCEED 4 Bar / 58psi or 45°C

Periodic Hydrotesting should be conducted every 2 years up to 6 Bar
