Carb & Condition in Keg

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tryed to put beer in a keg to carb and condition using priming sugar, no CO2 at all? Thought maybee could do an easy drinking beer for a party or something, and just use a hand pump to dispense throughout the night.

Yah you could do that but you would get alot of trub in the first few glasses and would have to drink it all that night which if you're like me wont be a problem because you would be introducing it to oxygen with wild yeast and bacteria in it by pumping it with air. If any is left over in the morning it would most likely be flat

I think it was BREW Magazine that had an article on this a few issues back. You can carb and condition in a keg. Just cut a half inch off the bottom of your outlet tube to cut down on pulling the shmutz from the bottom. The party pigs all call for sugar carbing as the little CO2 charges wont force carb the pig.
It shouldn't be a problem if the party is at your house. If you have to transport, you're going to stir up the trub and you'll have cloudy, yeasty beer.
As Clearcut mentioned: if you're hand pumping to keep it pressurized, drink it all within a day of tapping.
