A 5-liter keg makes around 10 pint-sized glasses of beer, or about 14 12-ounce bottles. Mini kegs are kegs with a capacity of five litres. They were created to be a cost-effective option for folks who prefer draught beer at home.
In the United States, conventional keg sizes are 1/2 keg, 1/4 keg, and 1/6 keg. A 1/2 keg holds just about 59 litres of beer and produces roughly 165 12-ounce bottles of beer. A quarter keg carries slightly more than 29 gallons of beer and yields 82 12-ounce bottles. A 1/6 keg, the normal keg size closest to the mini keg, is slightly larger, holding around 19 litres of beer and providing roughly 54 12-ounce bottles.
To distribute beer properly, kegs must be stored upright. If they aren’t stored properly, the beer will have a lot more froth than when it comes out of the tap. Beer kegs should also be maintained at cold temperatures because the liquid within has not been pasteurised and need time to settle after transportation. A keg of beer can be kept fresh for up to 45 days if properly stored.
