I've noticed recently that the kegs have a rudimentary pressure gauge. A day after you have kegged, the plastic stopper in the bung recedes back into the bung a bit. Not much, maybe less than a mm, but enough to feel it when you rub your finger over. Then at some point during the carbing process, it pops back out again, more or less flush with the bung. My last brew took two weeks for the plastic stopper to pop back into place for example. On my brew which was over-carbed, the plastic stopper had started protruding out beyond the bung. Again not by much, but enough to feel when you rub your finger over it. So I start to be able to roughly judge the keg pressure/state using that plastic stopper.

Like everything that happens no with brewing you think you have found a solution, only to find maybe not. So I went away on holiday looking foward to getting back and getting one of these.

Now I am back, catching up on the thread I now worry about getting the right bungs. I am worrying about getting the right co2 cartridges. And will it leak? The hassle I find with bottling now seems the Easy option again!

So for someone, who wants to keep it simple, is not a fan ( or has any talent!) with diy or mechanical tinkering, - is this the way to go?

I'm the least DIY minded person on the planet and I love mine. I've had no issues with cartridges or bungs, and have managed to keep beer fresh for 3+ weeks.
