Default Gyle and Kegging

Has anyone ever used gyle for carbing cornies?

All the instructions/procedures I've read on using gyle for priming always states bottling.

What were the results?

Rather than adding sugars or DME to your fermented wort before bottling (or kegging), you re-introduce a pre-measured amount of wert that you removed from your batch before fermenting. The sugars and hop-aromas are all present in it, your yeasts eat it up and carbonate, and the only thing in your beer is your beer.

It has another name which escapes me at the moment.

Adding gyle to your beer to condition it is called kreusening...

It's OK, I found a chart so it is a precess that can be used when kegging. That's what I was curious about.

I'm positive that krausening can be done successfully when kegging. I think with some quick math regarding specific gravity, you could determine how much gyle to add when krausening. Begin with a calculation of how much of an increase in gravity is required when priming with DME.

...or just use that chart you've got...I'd like to see a copy as well.

That's one of the words I was thinking of - I was also thinking of Speice, which is on the PDF.
