3 gallon keg...five gallons of beer
« on: March 09, 2013, 03:29:24 pm »

First time kegging (3 gal keg)  and I will have 2 gallons of beer left  that needs bottling.  I want to put a layer of CO2 in the bottling bucket but not sure how long a blast to give it. I have a QD on the CO2 line.

Any advice on the process ork how long of a blast

Probably just ten seconds should be sufficient.  I'd try to slow the flow and gently put the co 2 in from the bottom.  It's not extremely important, so you can't really mess it up much.
