Serving from keg that was used for fermenting
« on: May 22, 2020, 06:25:51 PM »
Greetings,

I'm doing my first fermentation in the keg.  Does anyone also serve from that keg, or does everyone transfer to a serving keg.
Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny

Same here, better to get it off the trub for serving

I don’t keg but my good pal Die Beerery and many others from our forum transfer to serving vessels to spund and dispense the beer.

He will chime in for sure.

Nope.  I try to blow out all the trub I can first.

I'll rig up a jumper.  I have 20 miles of various tubing, but never seem to have the size I need.  I have been spunding, the gas release woke the dog up at 3 am one day.  I do have the clear draught system (floating dip tube), so maybe that would help if I decide to serve in the same keg.

Yea you’d think he would have popped up by now. I wonder if there is something wrong with his account?

Not I'm aware of.

i ferment in the keg sometimes,i tilt the keg so most of the sediment leans to opposite side of the pick up and when it was finished i jumped it to a fresh keg and straighten the keg slow you pick up some yeast, i managed to recirculate it pretty good in the kettle which reduced the over all sediment from the start so that helped, to answer your question i would rack it off personally
