Just racked my skeeter pee out of secondary and sweetened it to perfection…now i want to put it in one of my kegs and carbonate it for a BBQ next week. This will be the first thing I have ever kegged so i’m looking for some advice.
when i connect the CO2, set my desired pressure, and turn it on…I just wait for the hissing to stop and that’s when the pressure in the keg has reached the pressure I want (which should show up on the gauge at the equilibrium point) right?
I don’t have room in my fridge or freezer and I haven’t bought a separate chest freezer and thermostat yet so I can’t reduce the temp of the keg to a steady, cool temperature to aide in the diffusion of the gas into the liquid. What PSI should i set my gauge to if my house is a constant 75*F (not my choice, the wife insists…)?
How long should I leave it at that pressure?
How much PSI do I need for serving? (just FYI, I hope to have a jockey box built before the BBQ, if not I’ll put the keg in a standard keg bucket with ice)
Thanks in advance
