Default First pour!

Just have to say that I poured the first pitcher from one of 2 kegs of fresh hopped chinook IPA, first kegging experience, and while it needs a few more days for sure to get carbed proper, I'm very happy with the time savings and results!
I suspect a few more days resting after force carbing it will clear up, but I'm drinking up!
Next steps to get the keezer build on and ditch the picnic taps

When kegging expect the first pint or two to have a bunch of extra yeast. This is normal, just discard a little and move on. If the beer is still a little cloudy it may need a few days or a couple weeks to fully clear.
