Do commercial kegs come carbonated?

You are correct about many commercial kegs coming from the brewery highly carbonated (about 3 volumes). I have done a lot of different things to work with foam issues and seem to have found a happy place.

How do I get more carbonation in my Kegerator?

Agitating the keg increases the contact area between CO2 and beer even further, promoting faster diffusion of CO2 into the beer. Continue to shake the keg for 20-30 minutes then lower the pressure to 20 PSI and allow the keg to carbonate for 2-3 days. Check the carbonation levels and enjoy!

How do you force carbonate a 50l keg?

Connect to either your carbonation lid using a gas (Grey) disconnect or by attaching your gas line to the liquid (black) disconnect and then attach it to the beer outlet side of the keg. Crank up the regulator over several seconds to 300 kpa (about 45 psi) Gently rock the keg for about 50 seconds. Turn off the gas.

What is the correct CO2 pressure for a kegerator?

between 5 and 12 PSI
Now that we’ve gone over the basics, check your CO2 regulator settings. Beer can be pushed at anywhere from 4 PSI to 14 PSI, but most kegerators work best between 5 and 12 PSI.

What PSI should CO2 be for a Kegerator?

between 10-14 PSI
What pressure should my CO2 tank be set to? This will depend on the beer you are serving but most American breweries recommend a pressure between 10-14 PSI.

Why is there so much foam in my Kegerator?

When the temperature rises above 40 degrees, the CO2 gas starts to escape from the beer, and this is what causes foam (in most cases). For this reason, temperature issues constitute the great majority of problems with kegerators serving foamy beer.

Why does my keg beer taste flat?

Flat beer in a keg is usually due to the keg being under gassed or the keg having a gas leak. Before you gas the keg a second time you will need to check the keg for leaks. To do this you need to set your regulator to 40 psi (280kpa) and pump gas into the keg for about 5 minutes. This will be enough to test the keg.
