comment How to properly keep a warm kegged beer (short term)
@brewchez oddly I can't click the numbers. Maybe the poster can't. Or who knows. But yes you guys all helped :)

I don't see a down vote... Did I do something accidentally? Or not me? If I can fix it let me know!

Thanks mdma! That tells me a lot as well. I'm starting to think I should just try and chill the primary manually and keep the keg in the fridge; my room only gets to about 75 ambient (hurrah for central air in Texas) so I could probably easily keep it where it needs to be until primary is done and then this wouldn't have been a question :) Either way, I'm way more prepped now. Side note, a friend just dropped off "Homebrewing for Dummies" which seems quite decent. And not at all insulting :)

Actually, a quick additional question on #1: is the CO2 released out of the liquid on the dispense? I would assume it can't come out of the liquid inside the pressurized keg, given that it has a fixed pressure (an no leaks)? Maybe I don't fully get the pressure level measure.

Wow. You made my question seem very overly complicated :) Doing some quick research based on your answers, but I see no reason not to flag it answered shortly. Thanks!!

comment Any need to stop yeast before kegging?
Hilarious. I LITERALLY just came here to ask this and this was the top question. I have a strong IPA, doing my first secondary (usually a long primary) and it's still kicking a bit 12+ days in. Didn't expect much fermentation in the secondary. Feel better about kegging it in another week now w/o it exploding!

comment (Should) my keg floweth over?
Just an update: as of last night, a quick pint still comes out mostly foam, some sediment, and some partially carbonated beer. The beer going in looked clear (hey a rhyme!) mostly, so I suspect I'm getting rid of the settled sediment and extra foam/carb a bit at a time. It's very cool to go just grab a test beer ;) A little too tempting...

I voted up both of you, but went with mdma's answer because he helped me understand what was happening so I could reason out the science of it. I always feel guilty answering one question over another! :( Thanks!!

@baka they answered below, sorry for the ambiguity. The general question was "are all my theories correct and I am in what should be a considerable a normal/favorable state to move forward?"

I have a pin lock keg with only the 1 time use PRV. So I have to use the gas post to purge. Made keg purchase based on internal height of fridge/freezer; but after storing keg realized I'll have to replace the freezer at some point,so I probably should have gone with ball lock in the first place!

comment Keg/CO2 question as I think about moving to kegging
I don't know if this is verboten, but any recommendations on online suppliers for refurbed stuff?

comment Keg/CO2 question as I think about moving to kegging
@brewchez Right (well, I'm learning :) ). Keg+tank+regulator, then splitter if I decide to go that route. First I have to verify that I won't be repeatedly ruining batches, and thus have a need for the keg!
