mrjones1975,

You are asking a lot of questions about the beginning aspects of kegging beer, carbonating, beer, and what equipment you need. Did you try a search yet within the forums yet? I don't want to repeat any info that is already tagged here.

you will need a keg ( most use cornelius kegs, either ball lock or pin lock)...... a co2 tank with a regulator....a tap......beer line.....connectors.

Sanitize your keg and rack your beer into it. I personally cold crash the beer so when I rack it into the keg I can force carb it right away. Once the beer is in the keg, attach the keg lid and turn your co2 regulator down to about 5 psi and put co2 into the keg......shut off the co2 tank and pull the release valve on the keg....repeat this process a couple more times. Turn the co2 regulator up to 30 psi and hook it to the keg and start rolling or shaking the keg. do this for a couple of minutes. Set the keg upright, turn off the co2 regulator and pull the release valve on the keg. set the co2 tank at about 10-12 psi and hook it back to the keg....attach the tap and drink.

If anyone tells you to do it differently, they are probably right.

This is my keg and my new fermenter. It dont say anything on instructions about using a co2 injector with keg.
