Sugar prime the keg, but seal it at a bar (or anybody else who has CO2). Get one of those
picnic CO2 cartridge chargers (They're good to have in inventory). This will totally take your
tank out of the...

Did 30# in a 10 gal cooler last weekend. 1qt/lb thick mash. Pulled out two decoctions 135, 145,

me to rule t...

Posted in thread: Taking my keg on vacation... how? on 02-27-2014 at 07:47 PM
I transport the keg upright in a 5 gal pail draped in ice. Tight fit with ice...wish I had a

Dip the end of "too narrow" tube in boiling water. Force/finesse it on. Resanitize and you're

glass Carboy ...
