I think there is more of an environmental impact by using TSP, but I could be completely
wrong...There never was. It was banned quickly before the algae bloom conjecture was exposed as

I think you were talking about purging the entire keg BEFORE filling, and I'm talking about
purging the headspace AFTER filling though? I'm still going to be switching methods. Thanks for
making me th...

Yep that's what I get for not doing the math, thanks!2250mL @ 0.68 atm @ 20C with 44.01 g/mol
CO2 = ~7 g of CO2 used 375mL @ 2.041 atm @ 20C with 44.01 g/mol CO2 x 15 purges = ~210g CO2WOW!

It really depends on what you mean by "feasible." It can certainly be done with little effort
and little CO2 waste. Purging 15 times with 30PSI reduces the O2 in the headspace to .01 ppm.

There is actually about 3 ounces (WAYYYY too much) of air left in the lid in most kegs due to
the way the PRV extends into the keg. I've been trying to come up with ways to purge

It's around graduation time... Cruise the Tempe CraigsList for dorm fridges. I use 2 and fit a
6-gal PET carboy in each. Just make sure the compressor hump is more tall and flat to the back
so your ai...
