Posted in thread: First time kegging -- need instant gratification on 09-03-2016 at 04:45 PM
I have used the shake and crank method before with mixed results. If the beer is cold, yes
crank it to 30 and do some rolling until you hear the CO2 stop going in. Then let settle for at

I just racked my IPA to my first ever keg. It's probably at around 75 degrees I would guess. I

danimal2,Were you ever able to use this successfully at 220V? I am also looking for a 220v temp
