On a ball lock keg the post with the grooves in it or with the serrated looking base is gas in.

Thanx JT, I have one keg, and one only...for now. It was definitely easier than bottling. The brew is my Mt. Hood IPA/APA for the Bloat meeting on the 20th. A little early but I will be out of town the 6th through the 15 and wanted to make sure I was ready. How is your version coming along?

Best advice I can give a new kegger is never to force the disconnects onto the posts. You can shove them onto the wrong ones, but you'll wish you hadn't.

I remember a post by Tom Schmidlin that had pictures as well as explanations, which I found here: https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=3791.0
but the pictures are not there anymore.  It's still a good post though, pun intended.
