Default Using the quick disconnect

I need to force carb two kegs by Friday but I only have one set of quick disconnects. Can I use the gray beer quick disconnect on the gas side of my second keg so I can carb both kegs at once?

Hi

The QD's are two different sizes. If you put them on the "wrong" post they are likely to jam up. You can back feed CO2 into the liquid out side of the keg. It's an odd thing to do, but it will work. Probably a good idea to vent the keg well (pull the pressure relief) so you flush liquid out of the dip tube.

"Gray" = "Gas"
"Black" = "Beer"

Use the gray QD on one kegs gas post, and hook the black QD up to your CO2 source and carb the other keg through the Out post...

Cheers!
