[quote=“Kgetch”][quote=“grainbelt”]you can carb like that but will still need c02 to push the beer out.
With the tank you can flush the keg with c02 to get rid of 02 and make sure it is sealed good.
My advice would be just chalk up the 40 bucks for a tank[/quote]
I have yet to find a tank for less than twice that so far…
I did keg up my BVIP last night. When I checked the kegs the other night, the hot water had cooled but also created some residual pressure…the seals actually popped when I relaesed the lid.
I’m going to try to burp it when I get home since I did prime the beer to condition naturally until I can gather the other stuff.
That said, I’m curious about oxidation. I’ll have to read up because based on the surface area and limited headspace in the keg, it must not take much at all to be a concern.[/quote]
Don’t burp it your just letting more oxygen in.
