Default 5 gallon batch split between two 5 gallon cornies?

Can you do it?

I friend and I want to slplit a 5 gallon batch we recently made that is now sitting in secondary. Will there be any problems with spliiting it between 2 cornies and force carbonating it from there? Or is there a better way to do it?

This will be the first time kegging for either of us.

I've done that for about 6 batches and havent had a problem at all. We naturally primed some and it just took more sugar than normal (about the amount you would use for bottling).

There was another thread started today that provides the best way to split your keg without oxidizing the beer...
