Gday brewers ! I've not done this yet in the 5 or so years ive been kegging my hombrew. I'm looking at transferring in my international Lager into a used (kicked) keg that had a Lager in it before hand. AH you Lazy dirty Bastard you may be thinking eh? Well yes there is that. But seriously in my noggin I've been weighing it up and it seems to me the best option. Usually I run a fermentation and purge the recieving keg at the same time but this time around that didn't happen. I was thinking I could kick a keg clean it and set it up next to the fermentor in time to get purged once primary fermentation had kicked in on the lager. No! I didn't expect the lager to fire 12hours later. Now I've drunk said keg and the lager is conditioning at 0c ready for transfer so I'm not getting any purging fermentation Co2 out of this beer. Right so the prudent method would be clean this kicked keg throughly then purge it using my co2 tank hook it up and transfer fresh beer in (but I'm a Cheap Bastard). Question. So I know the Lager in the kicked keg was good I didn't taste any negative qualities except some sulphur early on over a month ago. Here is a co2 purged keg with probably half a cups worth of trub at the bottom. I'm just going to transfer my fizzy International Lager over into this keg. Why not? Anyone done this? Cheers I'm going to do it anyhow but just thought I'd put the thought out on the forum and see if I'm not alone in transferring into a used keg. Think we do it from time to time with our fermentors transferring fresh wort on and old yeast cake.
