I keep seeing this and this is even how the guy I bought my setup from recommended it be done. But I just don't get it. Sure, the gas connect will fit on the OUT post, but it's clunky and to me just doesn't seem like a good idea.
If you want to hear the CO2 bubbling into the beer, roll the keg just a few degrees either direction so that the gas in post is submerged. Much better to put on your knee and roll and rock back and forth.
And again, the high psi is just not necessary. If you are rolling and shaking anyways, the difference in time for the CO2 to be absorbed at 12-15 psi versus 30 psi is negligible.
Anyhoo, fairly noob kegger here but I keep seeing this and just wondering why it continues to be propagated since there is no science behind gas going in the dip tube being a better way to dissolve CO2 in beer. To each their own I suppose.
