  • 22. Carbonating Tips Standard carbonating can take about 4-7 days. Kegs can be force carbonated quicker by turning up the pressure very high and rocking the keg gently. It’s always better to aim at a lower carbonation level and tweak it up to the desired level. It’s is far harder to remove carbonation.
  • 23. Kegging Beer Tips Add as clean of a beer as possible into the keg. Let the keg sit still in a fridge for a couple days to a week to let the yeast and proteins fall to the bottom. Your first couple pints of beer will be cloudy, but the beer should clean up with age. Try not to shake up a keg. Make sure all your connections are tight and clean. Use keg lube to help with better connections. Once Keg is sealed and carbonated, it is safe from light and oxygen. Spray a soapy (star san) mixture on all connections and look for CO2 Leaks.
  • 24. Kegging Cleaning It is recommended to break a keg down after every use and clean and sanitize every piece. Soak a keg and keg parts in hot water and PBW/Oxyclean Clean keg taps, lines regularly.
  • 25. Balancing a Keg System 3/16 in. (4.75 mm) inside diameter (ID):  3.0 PSI/ft. (67.9 kPa/m) 1/4 in. (6.35 mm) ID:  0.8 PSI/ft. (18.1 kPa/m) 5/16 in. (7.94 mm) ID:  0.4 PSI/ft. (9.0 kPa/m) 3/8 in. (9.53 mm) ID:  0.2 PSI/ft. (4.5 kPa/m)
  • 26. Common Beginner Issues Foamy Beer System needs balanced Cloudy Beer Dirty keg or lines, Keg needs to settle Flat Beer System may have a leak Foul Beer Possible left over cleaner, dirty connections or facuets Sour Beer (non intentional) Dirty keg, bad connections
