You are going to like it!!! And to be honest my 1st draws off keg had some amount of trub, trash, etc. Got way better after about 3-4 pints-smoothed out and lost a lot of bitterness.

Yeah man meant .10 down to .08

Set it at dispensing pressure and be patient (10-12 psi). It will be drinkable in maybe 4 days-it will be better in about 7-and after 2 weeks it will be in kick-ass-and-writing-down-names shape.
