Thanks for the info. I have a place not far from me that will supposedly fill while I wait. My plan will be to have two tanks so if I have to drop one off and pick it up another day it's not a big deal.
Reading more about kegging...it sounds like to carbonate my beer the setting will be around 8 or 9 psi, but to serve it should be maybe 10-12 ( based on my hose length).
So when not drinking I guess it should be dialed back to the pressure for my ideal carbonation level ?
I tend to not drink much beer during the work week, so should I leave everything connected at the carbonation psi? Beer line connected or maybe disconnected? I am just going to be using the picnic tap for right now, all enclosed in a mini fridge.
