First off I am going to attempt to brew my first batch today of beer. The wife got me a kit for xmas from Northern Brewer and I've been adding onto it since then. I have a three hearted ale I ordered a few months back that I am going to do.
Anyways, wish me luck But I do have a question about bottling and kegging. I was thinking of not bottling and going straight for a 5 gallon corny keg. Now with bottling I understand you can have some exploding beers, is that also a concern for corney kegs? And it seems like a mixed bag of reactions when I search for if I should put priming sugar in them. Since I'm new to think I figured I'd ask, because I don't know what type of carbonation level I like yet. Also with the kegs can they be kept unrefrigerated for any amount of time before getting them setup in the fridge?
I'm open to all suggestions, I just smacked the yeast bag and I'm letting it sit for a few hours and I'll be brewing away. Just going to run out to the store now and get my gas tank filled and an extra clean bucket for sanitation stuff.
