Default "Let it sit" carbing question

I've run out of room to stand my keg up to carb. I'd like to lay it on it's side for the 2 weeks at serving pressure to carb, any issues with this?

Thanks for the advice.

Cory

Actually, the greater surface area will carb it quicker. The downside is that you'll stir up sediment when you stand it upright.

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to see that in a reply. I'll have to deal with a bit of sediment I guess.

Thanks again.

if you have the room to cold crash for a couple days you can reduce the sediment. I still manage to pull through some from dry hops but it's a lot less if you have the space in your fridge.

Make sure beer does not go into the gas line while doing that if you keep it hooked up...unless you have some sort of check valve..
