I've got a 9 litre keg and was wondering if I'm carbing using sugar should I go with less sugar or is it ok to use the same amount as if I was bottling 9 litres?

Hi Kman

Cornies are really designed to force carb using CO2. The lid is designed to seal under gas pressure and the dip tube goes right to the bottom so will pick up the extra sediment (albeit possibly only the first few pints) form secondary fermentation.

So big bottle of gas and then tell the other half it would be silly to not get another keg
Oh and don't forget the fridge :). You need the beer at the right temp........
