I have to kegs feeding off the same normal size tank with a splitter on the regulator. What is the best way to manage it? Do I keep it low and turn it up when serving? Thanks!

Too much yeast?

I have seen and heard people use 2 white lab vials of yeast for a 5 gallon batch. Why would they do that? Pros/cons?

No legs?

So, my wine has been in the bottle for two months, early I know but.. Shouldn't it still have some legs in the wine glass? Or does that happen later? It taste great though..
