So I have 5 gal ready to be put into a keg... I also have 3 quarts of liquified (think blender)
strawberries. I'd like to use this to backsweeten before I keg and force carb. It is pretty

I like that idea. I guess if I use bricks for the base, I'm going to have to decide what color
and how to match that with the patio, etc. I am going for a rustic/beach look (mostly wood) so

This old thread seems like the appropriate place for me to ask.... I am going to keg some cider
that will sit at 1.02. I do not want to carb in the keg--I want to force-carb.The question

I've previously bottled all my cider but I ordered some kegging equipment last night. I'm
really unfamiliar with the force-carb process. I know I need to stop the fermentation, which
