I've got 3 kegs to do at once with a line splitter. Does this change the pressure? Also I can't fit all three in the fridge.
Hi Grot, no mini reg just yet, just using the co2 injector and picnic tap.Assuming you have a mini regulator, a 16gm cartridge will carbonate about 3/4 of the 4 litre mini therefore you will need two to carbonate and there will be enough left over for dispensing.
Chill keg overnight, connect reg/gas set up and set gauge to dispensing pressure ( say 8 to 10 psi) and put back in the fridge. After a day or so it should be empty and connect the next.
If going to " force carbonate" chill keg, connect reg/gas set up and lay keg on its side ( best to have non return valve to reg). Rock back and forward until you can not hear any more bubbling. Connect next cartridge and put in fridge, should be ok in a few hours.
As a first time kegger, might I ask how long you shake for?I just use the gas disconnect and just turn the reg up flat out and shake like buggery. I used to turn the keg on its side but I don't bother anymore.
Also, I am in the habit of chilling the beer in the fermenter before I transfer to keg. Since I normally keg on the weekend, I start the chilling on say Thu night. I have no problems sampling beer pretty much after shake rattle and roll bizzo although it definitately takes a bit to settle down to the perfect carbonation.
