IT IS SO EASY!!!
Hundreds of threads, tons of brewers do this.
Remove the post and dip tube, shove a rubber stopper on that covers the threads and accepts the airlock. DONE! (Add wort and yeast)
It bubbles like normal. You can add the dip tuba and post to transfer with co2, it has tons of advantages.....including transferring beer into the keezer without lifting ANYTHING.
