[quote=“roffenburger”]I think you might be confusing the term purge. Purging is flushing the system with co2 and displacing the air in the keg or headspace.
I put about a half gallon of sanitizer in a keg and shake or roll it around. I then flip it upside down over a sink and pull the prv once and then depress the gas popping to sanitize those parts. I then flip back over and dispense the sanitizer through the beer post and a racking cane/ auto siphon. This replaces the air with co2.
After that, the keg purged and ready to fill. I fill with the siphon attached to the beer post and pull the prv to keep it flowing while the lid is closed.
I like to carbonate at serving pressure. I feel it results in finer bubbles and smoother carbonation.[/quote]
Woops you are right. I meant “I have seen people carbonate at a high PSI”. My plan was to purge the keg first, let sit, then carbonate. I just didn’t know if it was normal to let a keg sit for a while after purging.
The beer is two weeks old and has been dry hopping for the past week. Is it too early to keg if I do it on Sunday or Monday?
