HBW #9 – Kegging the Irish Red Ale

In this video, I finally get around to kegging the Irish red ale I brewed in my Homebrew Wednesday #6 video. My kegging process is pretty straightforward, and works pretty well. I’m relatively new to kegs, so I would appreciate any pointers from anyone with more experience (really, please leave a comment below).

One of my favorite tools for transferring is my auto-siphon. I use the 1/2″ size because it allows the transfers to happen more quickly. The 3/8″ auto-siphon can be used with a bottling wand if your bottling bucket does not have a spigot.

Keg systems can be a great alternative to bottling, but require more of an investment to get started.
