Hey folks, i have 2 soda kegs now lagering. Do most of you rack it into another keg before you carb or just put it straight onto the C02?

For me it would depend on how many times it had been previously racked...IOW the need to get it off a significant amount of sediment. But other than that, I see no reason to rack again...if there is a small amount if sediment you will blow it out when you first dispense.

Yeah i was thinking the first few pulls would get it out anyways.

Besides, i haven't got to rack it and end up stirring the **** out of it.

I'm terrible at racking.

I rack from the primary to the keg. Sometimes I get a little sediment, but after a pull or two, it's pretty clean..
