Just to clarify, you're using a shortened spear to pressure transfer, using the sanke tap... but fermenting with a carboy cap, Right?
How much did you take off of the spear to avoid transferring the trub?
If yes, are you using a blow off tube or an airlock?
How much krausen gunk are you getting in the keg headspace, if you know? Basically, are you able to do more than 10 gallons in a non modified sanke keg?
Thanks so much for the response!
