Default Dry Ice Force Carbing??

Sorry if this topic has been covered before... a search for dry and dry ice didn't produce any results.

Anyway, I'm going to start kegging my beer and was interested in naturally carbing in the keg so I was doing a little research and came across an interesting suggestion on force carbing using dry ice.

The link to the natural carb article =

http://www.ehow.com/how_7406002_natu...-beer-keg.html

Look at the only comment tagged onto the end there where the guy mentions the dry ice method.

Does this work? How well? Can you do this and then let the beer age for 3+ weeks as you normally would for natural carbing?

Thanks for the info!

Really? I found several. Here's one: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f13/forc...-dry-ice-5373/

Unsurprisingly, sounds like the biggest concern is the extremely rapid rise in pressure.

When you search, use the google search which is the top one in the search box. You'll get plenty of hits for "dry ice carbonate".

This thread is probably he best one: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/dry-...n-video-29448/

edit: not meaning to sound like a jerk there about searching right. More saying that the basic search sucks, use the google and you'll get good results.

I've never tried it, and didn't read the article, but as long as there is enough initial pressure to properly seal the keg, you have options (course, that includes running away as fast as you can).
