Is that a gas disconnect just under the RANCO? That is brilliant! What kind of hardware did you need to make that connection to the gas post?
Yes, the connector is just below the Ranco. It was pretty simple actually. I don't have the list of parts with me but the most critical are these:
Cornie adapter: http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/adapter-for-corny-plugs-1-4-ffl-x-19-32-18.html
Type B ball lock gas connector: http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/plug-assembly-gas-type-b-all-cornelius-ball-lock.html
Once I found those it was just finding a plumbing nipple that fit the adapter.
I used the same fittings, although it runs into a cabinet that sits next to the kegerator. I hide the CO2 tank behind a cabinet door in the cabinet next to the kegerator (between the kegerator and wine fridges):

I typically rinse, PBW or Oxy soak, hot rinse, sanitize, purge/pressurize CO2 and store. As Denny stated, if the keg will hold pressure while in storage, it should maintain pressure during kegging/serving. I keep my kegs pressurized while in storage.
This yeast (Wyeast 2206) just seems too slow at temps below 52, so I figure the starter should not ferment in a fridge but be at room temp.
Making a 5G batch for the purpose of yeast harvesting will be a new milestone, thanks again for everyone's feedback.
Lager yeast starters should always be made at room temp. You're growing yeast, not making beer, and yeast grows better at warmer temps. You'll be decanting all that nasty starter wort, anyway.
I get no lemon, I get spicy peppery more so than any fruit.

There's a price to pay to live anywhere. Give up some things - gain others.
I grew up as an Air Force brat, and then as a NASA brat during Apollo. My family lived many places around the world. That allowed me to realize that living wherever you want is just a matter of making up your mind to be there, and then making it happen.
Florida used to be my favorite place in the world, and I lived there for many years. Then my wife and I came to Hawaii on our honeymoon. As soon as I stepped off of the plane I knew this is where I am supposed to be. So I made it happen. This is hands-down my favorite place in the world. I still love Florida, and go back to visit occasionally. I used to enjoy traveling. Not so much anymore. I am really happy waking up in Hawaii, every day.

Do you brew a lot of dark beers? What was the mash pH?
Yeah, sounds like rubbing it in to me; after a warm fall, winter just arrived. You could have asked this in October...
Makes me want to ask, how much is a gallon of milk or gas or some other non-local commodity.
So, yeah, it's 29F now, but milk is $1.99 and gas is $2.89.
Milk in Western Washington is about $3.29, and gas is just a bit more.
That's the metric by which quality of life is measured?
"I live in a miserable s***hole, but hey, gas and milk are cheap!"
(Not disrespecting Western Washington)
