I just googled his kit and found this vid, looks like a UK pressure barrel to me.

Yup,that's one of them. I just couldn't remember the name. They put the beer in it,& prime it in there,then serve. Interesting idea,but the priming rate is different,as I understand. They have at least a few different ones,but all work the same.

I've never used a pressure barrel. So, take this for what it's worth, but I'm assuming you want a lower/cask style carbonation on that beer. If so, you're not going to need to add much sugar. For a five gallon corny keg you would need less than an ounce of dextrose for the whole batch.

Doesn't your kit come with kegging and priming instructions?!?!

Yeah,you'd need some priming instructions for those pressure barrels,since the priming calculators we use are for bottling co2 amounts. I agree to look at the instructions for priming amounts with those.

Thanks.

And yes. Both come with instructions. Unfortunatley, both contradict each other.

One also says leave 3 days in primary and other says 3 week :S.

On says add sugar other says dont lol.

Would i be best off to get a co2 injector valve and bulbs to prime it or to use when its ready.

Really new to this (2days to be precise) , so my knowledge isnt the best.

Thanks again.

3 weeks in primary would be better to get clearer,cleaner tasting beer. Then transfer to the pressure barrel & prime. It's the priming sugar amount that you need to know for that barrel.

Excellent ill leave it three weeks.

Would it be possible if i left it at room temp when i kegged it for 3days and then a cool place for a week-2week.

Or straight to basement?

Could i also stand the keg on its side. So when i pour my pint the trub will stick to it. Or should i just stand it upright and throw the cloudy pints away.

Thanks.

I would just keep it upright, as designed, and toss the first pint with any yeast in it, that's what I do with naturally carbed kegs.

Are you doing primary in the pressure barrel,or separate FV? I'd use a separate primary myself,let the beer reach FG,then allow it to clean up & settle clear before racking to the pressure barrel for priming. It'll likely take a couple weeks to carbonate. At least close to the time it takes in bottles. But it'll need conditioning time as well. & cover it with a dark tee shirt or a cozy to keep the UV light spectrum from skunking the beer. Standing it upright will do,since putting it on it's side,then going upright will stir up the trub again.

I am using a fermenting bin with an airlock for primary. Letting the beer reach FG and racking to a barrel.

Appreciate the tips. Thank you.
