But i'm curious of when going to kegs do you prime in the conical and then transfer?

Or my other thought was to use fermentation bucket to put priming solution in and fill to 5 gallon line and then rack to keg....just think the cleanest solution is best to avoid oxygen.
Awesome!

I also soaked mine in a warm oxiclean solution for a couple of days, rinsed, then poured a couple of cans of cheap beer in, swished around, and let sit overnight. Got rid of all the glue and plastic smell.

Few pics, not much dropped except beer from under cake. May have to crack the lid a little to get the vacuum lock out?

built keezer on saturday. 2 kegs full of APA this evening, more pics once out of basement.

next batch will only be 5 gallons. used racking arm to keg and it was all very clean. cleaner than i expected.

Going to make some adjustments

-obviously attach yeast catcher at beginning.
-turn racking arm elbow to side instead of straight down.

overall extremely pleased with this setup!
