I will be receiving my kegging equipments from Kegconnections.com sometime this week and am really excited about the switch from bottling (I have brewed and bottled 5 batches so far and can't take the bottling step anymore
) . This may be the first of many questions I will have about kegging (although the search feature has been a good friend so far).
So currently I have a Dunkelweizen in the primary and almost ready to transfer to the secondary. I was wondering, if instead of racking it twice, I can simply rack it to the keg once, let it sit around 60-65F for a week or so and then force carbonate it.
Any drawbacks to this?
The only one I can think of is that I usually use some clarifier (gelatin) when the rack to the secondary. If I do this in the keg, there'll be no way of removing the muck at the bottom. However, given that the Dunkelweizen is dark and should have yeast floating around anyway, doesn't make much sense to use a clarifier anyway.
Any thoughts, suggestions are appreciated.
