Carbing a Keg using Priming Sugar
« on: July 30, 2022, 02:56:56 pm »
How long does it take to carb a keg using priming sugar? I am assuming it's like bottle conditioning, about 2-3 weeks. Thanks for the input!

I only bottle condition and have never conditioned a keg.  But I can’t imagine it would be any different.
2-3 weeks @ about 70°.

Thanks for the links! Yes, it took about 2 weeks. There was sludge at the bottom. But, After a couple of pours, it ran clear.
