The handles are 1" longer on V2 to allow the bottom keg to dispense while stacked. Everybody wins with more choices on the market. New AEB kegs have dropped around 20% in the last year due the new competition models. The future may hold a 23L model keg as well.

Okay with that info, it sounds like these kegs are 14.5" high overall including the new higher handles. I don't have one to measure yet, that's just inferring from the above.

Thanks for the site clarification. I've been using 12 Tap A Draft bottles for a couple of years now. I like to brew 3-gal batches and 2.5 gal stainless is another good alternative for me.

I just recieved Williams Brewing catalog, and they have a 1.75gal version of the Chinese keg for around $85.
I brew 3gal batches, and the smaller one might be nice.
