Capping on foam is a best practice, foam is CO2.

I have read that quality CAP seals allow 1 ppb/day into the beer. Cans are essentially zero, but have higher initial TPO compared to a bottle. No idea what gets into a corny keg with good seals.

Levadura Lager és Mejor ? Sí!

El uso de levaduras lager, para microcervecerias, es beneficioso para toda cerveza de alto lúpulo, ya que genera menos lavado del sabores del lúpulo por el menor araste del co2 para afuera del tanque....

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Bottling vs Kegging: which keeps beer fresher longer?

One would think that air ingress past the seal would be a somewhat equal issue for both bottles and corny kegs.

I was thinking along the lines of the purge. You have less trapped air in a bottle, so all things equal, you would expect a poor keg purge to have substantially more Oxygen than a bottle.
No, as a ratio to beer volume, there is far more air in a bottle.  But you have active yeast with sugar for carbonation in bottling that is scrubbing the O2 from the air.  If you are doing compressed CO2 keg carbonation, you don't have that.

And it really isn't hard to fully purge a corny.  I'll post my simple system with pics when I get time.

It's the air ingress past the cap seal vs past the corny keg seal in long term staling that I'm questioning.

Edit:  After re-reading your post, I may have to agree with you if you mean by "poor keg purge", almost no keg purge.  And I'll admit to doing a bunch of those in the past.

I can't say I really inspected it. My friend was the one that cut open the bags and put it into a bucket. I didn't catch my eye as being too big or anything but I didn't examine it per say.

How about terminate at the door. Run a bulkhead through the door. Then pick up on the other side to run your line.

Something like this: http://www.homebrewing.org/Bulkhead-adapt-14-mfl-2-78L_p_3576.html

Hi all!
I just changed from a modified chest freezer to a freezer over model for my kegerator.
My taps are in my kitchen on the floor above ('cause my wife lurvs me)

The chest freezer had a home-made extension at the top that I ran my tubing through to run it to the kitchen, but the new fridge can't have the same solution.

I want to run the tubing through the door, as there's no cooling piping there, but I want to make sure the door hole and its sharp edges don't damage the tubing.

How do I run this tubing to ensure there's no damage?  I thought about running it through a protective sheath like 1/2 pex or something

Anyone else have and solve this issue?

Cheers!

Adam

I would not say the crush from More Beer could not be the issue. That's the first place I'd look. Was it crushed as fine as normal for your normal efficiency?

But most don't purge bottles at all.
I'm not making any assumptions. I'm sure somebody has solid numbers.
