Default Poll: Which Post do you Force Carb With?

For awhile now i have been using the liquid side. Any reason not to if you know the system and can prevent liquid from coming back up the line?

Pro's and Con's of both welcome.

i force carb on the gas side just so I don't run that risk and so I don't have to switch stuff around. If I need to carb a beer quickly, I use the out side.

So, your saying the Liquid side is a faster carb method?

Sounds like one Pro to using the liquid side

Inlet side. Safe, don't have to worry about screwing things up. But I don't have a fancy manifold, just Ts and four kegs, so I am extra careful. It is my understanding the liquid side achieves better results, but I'd rather wait longer and not have to worry about wrecking a regulator, or worse mixing all my beers.

I've used gas posts, liquid posts, they both work about the same rate unless you're shaking. One of these: http://www.ontariobeerkegs.com/Carbo...nation-lid.htm
is my next luxury purchase. I figure it's less hassle to move it from keg to keg, than having the carb stone attached to the liquid dip tube.

I must admit, when i carb 7 or 8 kegs at the same time i have to be ready and pull a valve or two so the liquid gets pushed back into the keg.

Can't you screw up your connectors when you insert them in the other side too much?
