I'm about to rack an IPA into a king keg, and i'm just wondering how much priming sugar to put in... Does 100 grams of LME sound ok? I don't want much carbonation.

I use this type of keg and feel the same about carbonation,so i use about 4 tbls of white sugar for priming,i use the top tap/float type and get enouph carbonation to dispense 2/3rds of the contents after that co2 gets the rest.so 100g of LME sounds ok to me

Thanks! I ended up firing in 100 grams of dark spraymalt. If this keg works out I might invest in one of the top tap ones you're talking about.
