    Carb pressure

    So I neèded to open the keg to remove the hop bag. I had previously set the gas at 30 for 24 hrs then at 16 for another 24 hrs. Since I had to open the keg should I repeat this ? As of now I set it at 16. There was some foam when I removed the bag. Thanks Steve

    Dry hop in a keg ? Or too late?..

    I was supposed to dry hop in my secondary before transfer to keg, but I kegged the beer last week and now remembered I was missing a dry hop. I kegged and sealed the keg with CO2. Can I open the keg add the additional hops and seal it then carb it next week? Or did I miss the boat? Thanks Steve

    Low carb level

    I brewed a gum all head clone. Added 3oz DME to 12 oz water, l kegged and let sit for 3 weeks. Went to pour last night and there was little carbonation. So I turned the psi to30, purged and set the psi to 12. Will this carb me up in a week. Should I set to pour at 8 psi? Thanks Steve:tank:

    Natural carbing in keg

    Just a quick review. I added 12 oz water w/ 4 1/4 oz DME to the 5 gal batch set the co2 @ 30 psi. Purged . Set @ 30 psi again . Now I will leave the keg at room temp for 3 weeks chill for 3 days and then pour. Are my steps correct Steve
