I found some info that said if you carb with sugar, the keg may not seal completely because there isn't enough pressure. Has that happened to anyone?
Well I think you still want to purge any oxygen with CO2; that is what I do currently. However, it's a big bottle and what I think what the information was saying was that if you just stick the lid on and do not purge with CO2, you won't be able to check for leaks. Can you purge with CO2 after racking over priming sugar?
Also, I use 1/2 of the sugar I am supposed to because that is what seemed to be the consensus. I've done 3 beers now like this and carbonation was great in two; the other is bulk aging in a keg today.
Kegs are great for aging actually. Free of light and if purged with CO2, they should be 100% sealed.
