    Kegged a homebrew ipa about 5 days ago. Just realized I put a liquid post on the gas side. How bad will i screw up the carb levels if i quickly switch them out?

    I'm not sure exactly what your current configuration and gas/carb status is, but in general...

    - Turn of the gas
    - Disconnect any gas/liquid disconnects from the posts
    - Release the pressure in the keg's headspace.
    - Rearrange your hardware to correct configuration
    - Purge the keg's headspace with CO2
    - Commence/recommence carbonation

    Thanks vikeman. i set and forget so i just hate to lose almost a week of carbing.
  4. You won't lose a significant amount of carbonation. You'll pretty much pick up where you left off. How long does it take for a glass of beer to go flat after pouring? It's kind of the same thing.
