A little late, but I didn't see this mentioned.  I usually set the pressure on a cold keg to about 30 psi.  Roll the keg on its side for 4 minutes.  Set the keg upright and disconnect the gas.  Put it in the fridge for about 5--6 hours.  Relieve pressure and reattach CO2 at serving pressure.  Works like a charm. 


kegged an IPA last night. Brewed the Roll In Ze Hay Hefeweizen today and tomorrow I'll brew Nachtmare Schwarzbier.

I usually oxygenate first. But I've pitched first also. I haven't noticed any difference.

Yeast and Fermentation / Stir plate starter question
« on: May 26, 2011, 11:13:08 PM »
I'm using a stir plate on a starter for the first time, and was wondering if I will see any foaming or activity. Or just the spinning wort?
