    I've been home brewing simply for years . By that I mean traditional from grain, fermentation buckets and bottling after priming. Recently, I have taken the plunge on a Fermzilla with pressure kit.

    I'm looking to ferment and serve, so using the kit as an all-in-one.
    I've a couple of scatter gun questions about this kit I'm hoping you can help with.

    1) At what point do I take change the collection chamber to remove the trub/yeast?
    How do you tell? Is it 1 day - or many days?

    2) What PSI should I set the spindling valve to pressure ?
    My cellar keeps a nice 65F to 68F temperature and I like a stout.

    3) Can I expect to pour straight from the vessel?
    Does the PSI need to be increased as the liquid drops?

    4) I have a soda stream style CO2 bottle. Will this suffice?
    Do I need a full CO2 tank?

    5) Will I need a full CO2 tank to bottle using a beer gun?

    Sorry for so many questions, but hopefully I can piece together the parts and gain a better understanding of the direction I'm taking.

    Many thanks in advance.

    I don't have one of these so am just going by the pics and how I think it would work, so hopefully someone else can clarify or confirm.

    1 I think either when its full or your ready to serve
    2 sorry no idea for fermentation and for serving use a carbonation chart
    3 From the picture below it looks like you have to use it like a corny keg so you will need the ball lock valves and beer line to a tap and gas line to your CO2 source.

    4 Yes but in the long term a full size cylinder would make more sense.
    5 You need some CO2 the soda stream will still work just run out quicker,
