Dispensing from a 30L or 50l carbonated Sankey keg?

Postby abeyptfc » Fri Mar 08, 2019 21:28

Hi folks, we get our Lager and IPA carbonated and kegged in 30L and 50L kegs, if I was to use one and serve from a font and a bottle of co2, what psi would I set the regulator for? we sometimes put one on for tours etc and I’ve been told the take the kegs home to finish but dunno what sort of pressure to serve at.
cheers guys. the abester.

Depends on the beer style, what carbonation level it’s already at, length and size of beer line and temperature mark. You’ll have to have a play around with it and see what works best.

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.
