Default Kegging BMC???

So this is a noob to kegging question. Could you technically carefully dump cans of BMC into a corny and the purge the O2 and set it at serving pressure without having funky oxidized beer. I ask this because some of my friends are disgusted by the idea of drinking anything but BMC.

Why don't you (or better yet, they) just get a keg of BMC?

I doubt you can get a ball lock keg of BMC, but you can get a sanke keg and buy the adapter to us with your system. MUCH easier than buying two cases of BMC and filling up a keg...

Or, you could try and get some new friends that apprecaite good beer.... I'm just sayin'.... You have options...

Yup, or search the forum for "converting BMC drinkers" for ideas on brewing "gateway" beers. And agreed with ValleyBrew that converting a Sanke keg is easier (and cheaper) than pouring a bunch of cans.

I think the easiest solution is to just find new friends.

If you're going to buy it anyway, then why don't you just serve them cans?

Look at the recipe section under hybrid light beers for BMC-drinker-friendly recipes.

You can also do a keg to keg transfer between the bev out of the sanke (commercial) keg and your corny. I did this to save space, went from a half empty pony keg to a corny. Steps:
1. Sanitize target corny
2. Put a qd on the other end of your sanke out bev line, but don't attach yet.
3. With the top on the target corny, give it some gas and vent to remove oxygen.
4. With the target with no pressure, hook up your sanke to corny bev to bev line. The beer will start to transfer. Keep your gas applied to the sanke source.
5. Every 30-60 seconds, vent the target keg a bit. This keeps the source at a higher pressure and the beer flowing.

You can tell how much is in the target by the condensation on the outside of the keg, or by weighing it before the transfer and during.

This method keeps oxygen out, keeps the same carbonation level, etc.
