I have a 15.5 gallon coors Sanke and I want to use it as my keg. I know I can carb it up with a Sanke coupler and distribute it with a co2 tank, but I was wondering, can I force carb it then detach the coupler and use a standard hand pump dispenser as if I got the keg from the store?
You can but you'll ruin you beer in no time. The hand pump intoduces O2 which will stale your beer. Unless you plan on drinking the whole keg at once and/or tanking it somewhere to share I would sugest you use a CO2 tank to serve your beer.
The problem with the world is that everyone is a few drinks behind
