Well my new keg came today, 5 gal ball lock. I have my taprite regulator, and a 5 lb co2 tank and pre assembled gas in and beer out lines are on the way. Also some keg lube coming.
I am thinking as a test maybe it would be a good idea to fill the keg with a sanitizing mix and connect up to the c02 and then spray the connections to check for leaks ?
Should I use lube on the o- rings for the in and out connections before attaching the in/ out lines?
I guess I would like to be confident in the set up and my ability to seal the keg correctly before I have 5 gal of beer at stake.
After bottling 96 bottles last weekend I am really looking forward to a keg or two.
I found a local co2 supplier that has 10lb tanks so my long range plan is to have a 10 lb as my primary and the 5 lb as the back up to swap in when needed.
