I like the balloon idea. If you have two kegs or at least a 7 gallon pale you can do this without using your own bottled co2 and just use the fermentation. You can do the same Starsan solution in the keg prior to fermentation. You could then hook the the line coming out of your ferementer to the filled keg’s gas line. Then hook the kegs beer line up to the second kegs gas line or into a 6+ gallon pale. The co2 from your fermentation will push the starsan to the next keg or bucket and completely purge the keg of oxygen. You’ll also still be able to fill your balloon. It’s the Same idea you explained but you’re just utilizing the fermentation and saving money on the co2I clean a keg, fill it completely with StarSan, and use bottled CO2 to push out the StarSan -- leaving a CO2 filled keg. I bleed almost all of the pressure off the keg, to the point where I feel one more tug on the pressure relief would fully depressurize it.
