Default Keg transfer?

Anybody know of some reliable force carb instructions? One member seemed to think it was important to transfer kegs after saturation but I have not seen that spelled out anywhere else.

That is just for a really clean keg (ie little to no sediment in your serving keg). I personally don't move mine after it goes in the kegerator, so the first couple of pints and it pours crystal clear. That is with a long primary, carbonation in my primary, and counter-pressure transfer.

No. I mean, if you transfer to the keg too soon before it has cleared in the fermenter and you want to be able to transport that keg to a new serving location, you'd want to do a closed transfer. Otherwise, it's not necessary.

Also if this is a concern, you might want to think about filtering equipment, but you want to filter before carbonation. I don't do this yet but am looking in to it. I have a canister system now (got it for free) but have not set it up yet, but think I might like to look in to a the plate systems.

I have found that just letting the keg sit for a week at 33 during the end of Carbonation, clears up the beer a lot, after the first pull.

I think the week at 33 is going to be the winner

Default forced carbonation in different kegs

This may be a stupid question, but can you force cabonate in both Corny and Sanke kegs? All of the posts I have seen on force carbonation seem to be with Cornys.

On the last couple of batches I have naturally carbonated the kegs. I like this because it allows more conditioning time at room temp which speeds up the conditioning process and as soon as a tap is ready I can put it on and it is ready to go.

Yes, they are no different in what they are only how they operate. The ports are different, but that is it. They are both pressure vessels.
