Transferring from carboy with co2
1 Attachment(s)

I transferred from secondary (better bottle) to keg by connecting co2 to the carboy through the orange hood cap (see picture). Is there anything wrong with doing this? I was worried that the carboy might not be able to hold the pressure (though I kept the psi at 3-5). Thanks. It worked just fine for me.

I used to do it all the time without issue. CO2 start and gravity finish works also, but my 13.5 gallon carboys don't get moved with any contents

I went to combo CO2/vacuum method that works sweet. Pump a little CO2 in carboy, insert racking cane connected to liquid out a couple of inches above the beer, start vacuum at gas in to displace atmosphere in cornie with CO2, start lowering racking cane until keg is full.
No pressure, no problem. Have needle valve to regulate the vacuum using this thing I got from ambulance company yard sale.
