    Best way to transport a keg- Pressurized headspace or no?

    In these COVID times, we'll have neighborhood gatherings in the common grassy area in our subdivision on weekends from time to time. I load up a couple cornys on a wagon and roll out there- all of maybe 150-200 ft. I end up with huge amounts of foam in my picnic tap beer lines, and oftentimes...
