Hello,

I am going to be starting in on my first batch of forced carb soda but i'm wondering how much CO2 it takes to complete the process. I have a smaller tank that I've been using for doing my 2L bottles for a while; it's not empty or anything but should I get a charge first before doing my korny?

You're going to carb up a 5 gallon keg? It doesn't take much gas, but I can't tell you how much for sure. One 5# tank tends to last me for about 5-7 5- gallon kegs, from force carbing to dispensing (assuming no leaks, of course!).
