The beer should be conditioned, but you could force carb and serve. Read this thread on the subject. I completely agree with the OP that the flavor is not quite right until the beer has conditioned a few weeks. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f35/keg-...strated-73328/

It was in my primary for 3 weeks and has been in my secondary for 3 weeks. Is that not good enough or does it actually have to b kegged for that long?

Also, why is it that I can get my co2 tank filled anywhere and it doesnt matter. But, when I needed co2 cartridges for my coors keg everyone said to make sure they were food grade?

I start knocking back my beer when it has been on the keg for a week. However, it doesn't taste quite right until it hits the 3-4 week mark. Carbonation is fine, just flavor seems to be a little off... as the OP in the other thread puts it, "It gets better than 'good enough' after a few weeks." Nice thing about kegging is that you can more easily take small tastes along the way without wasting a bottle at a time. EDIT: I don't know the answer to your other question... I've never heard of that before.

I've noticed that my beer needs some time due to the co2 adding a bite to it that usually resolves by the time it is fully carbonated (1-2 weeks).

So rack into the keg.
Keg into fridge.
Put about 12 lbs on it and let it sit for 2 weeks?

Because the non food grade ones, usually used to inflate bike tires, contain oil.

It works for me .... If you look under the Force carbonation sticky, it shows how long to carbonate with the set and forget as well.
