It has been done. I have carbonated beer in the keg and am currently enjoying it at my leisure. Never mind that it isn't all that good of a batch, I will drink the whole 5 gallons proudly. After discussing what we were going to brew Ernie and I went to the homebrew store and kind of made up a recipe with things that looked/smelled/tasted/sounded good to us at the time. This is not a great idea for homebrewers of my level of expertise but loike I said I will drink the whole 5 gallons proudly and enjoy every sip.
Today we brewed an Amber Ale, a welcome change from the lighter beers we've been brewing. This will be the first beer that I keg. Very exciting indeed. Now that I have the keg and the beer has been brewed, I believe it's time to learn how to do this. Kegging will ge my next great adventure.
On a different note, when discussing what yeast to pitch for our latest batch, my thoughts kept coming back to the east coast ale yeast and thd Irish ale yeast. These are both white labs products that I have used many times. I save yeast and make starters and pitch it in as many beers as is appropriate and neither of these two have disappointed me. I don't know what it is about these two but I have had mixed and poor experiences with other kinds of yeast so I think there may be something to them. I just wanted to share some product reviews. Cheers!
