So after 3 batches of bottling ive moved to kegging and decided to naturally carb due to space. ( i dont have room for 5 gallon kegs, large co2 tank and reg.) Im using 2.5 gallon kegs in my regular fridge with a mini reg. and 60gram co2 cartridges.

I used 3/4 cup cane sugar and waited 12 days to try it and its flat. I did prime the keg with co2 and purged. Also ive checked the kegs for leaks and im good on that.

Do i need to wait longer?


If it makes any difference my brew in a clone of zombie dust.
The kegs have been sitting at 70f.

You will still need gas to get the beer out of the keg. A 5 pound gas bottle is about the same size of a 2l coke bottle and will last you a long time. I have 4 5 gallon kegs and I am about to kick my second bottle in a year. :mug:
