Cornelius keg filling with bud light?
 
I just got a Cornelius keg and I don't have any homebrew ready to put in it but I wanted to know if a store would fill it up with bud light or any other beer. Also I wanted to know when you set the PSI do you set it with the valve on the regulator closed or open ?

1: Probably not. Buy two cases and fill it your self.

2: I could be wrong on this, but I don't think it matters.

I don't know how they could fill it. They'd have to have "beer in bulk" and the right hardware. A brewpub could probably fill it, or help you out, though.

When I set my regulator, it's always hooked up to my kegs, so it's open.

Yup...You gotta have it either hooked up, or close that valve...either way will work fine.

As for filling your cornie....find your local brew pub...they'll fill it for you.

My local brew pub said that he could not fill mine for legal reasons. He said that its considered an "open container". So he could fill it but I couldn't take it with me. Seemed kind of strange because he offered to fill several growlers that I could take home and fill the corney with myself. I was asking him because I was going camping and did not have any beer ready.

edit: Could be some funky law in South Cakylacky. Also, maybe he is not licensed to sell kegs and was covering himself.

Me thinks he wanted to make some green on the growlers. A screw on top isn't any more closed than a corny keg. He wouldn't be selling a keg just the beer now if he took a keg from the walk'in and sold it to you then he may have a problem

to the OP why would you want bud light? Get some local brew and drink.

No, he offered to loan me the growlers so he wasn't looking to make a buck. I believe that he can't sell kegs, you can only get them from liquor stores here. Also, he tapes the lids on the growlers so that they are "sealed".

Anyway, I just bought a couple of cases and took them home and filled a keg there.

I hope you got your answers.

For now we have to say goodbye for a few weeks until you hit 21.

Gotta mind the rules. Come back in a few and we'll be glad to help you along.
