Just carb it with Co2.
Well, he meant just push the beer at 8 lbs after the priming sugar has carbed the beer, not carb at 8 lbs.

I think the bigger issue is you lose carb if you turn it down to dispense. Just leave it at that pressure to serve and get longer lines.

Had an out of town visitor come in. He wanted to try a home brew so I tapped it this evening. It turned out great!

He liked it as well. Good carbination, flavor and head.

Im going leave it be for myself another couple weeks but im glad it came out well.

Thanks for the tips all.
