Im not sure i entirely understand your question...

If you are trying to pressurize, you will have to either force carb (with co2 bottles or cartridges) or naturally carb (with priming sugar).

I'm a newb myself but from what I've read so far you should wait until fermentation has finished then prime with the required amount if sugar, boil a cup of water and dissolve sugar, add to barrel, syphon fermented beer into barrel to naturally carbonate, I'm currently making lager and will be using the same barrel, my worry is that it may go flat when the barrel gets half empty, I'm hoping that these barrels can be topped up with a co2 bulb if required
