Groovy, I use Sankes and usually push a bit out when I drop the tube in, so its really full! I hate beer in the gas lines too of course, but since I got a micromatic coupler with a floating ball I haven't had a drop go backward which is really sweet.
I've become a big fan of natural conditioning over force carbonating, but this keg I'm slow forcing over time in the fridge and thats really what made me think about putting a layer of CO2 on top. Thanks y'all!
