    I've done in the past and it worked fine. I left the keg in the cooler, vented enough to open
    the keg, tossed in the bag, sealed and put it back on the gas.

    I just kegged a saison with late addition Nelson Sauvin. It's my first experience with that

  • Posted in thread: No Octoberfest for you, drink Pumpkin beer on 09-10-2014 at 05:23 PM
    I would love to know how many of these pumpkin beers actually have any pumpkin in them.
