Couple questions for you guys:
1. Are your kegs already carbed? If so do you release some pressure prior to flight?
2. Do you fly with CO2 and/or Beer gas bottles (depending on the style) and a picnic tap for the destination?

I'm just getting into home brewing (have an amber ale and a blonde ale in the fermenters as I type) so this is of great interest to me. I guessing it's not a issue, but being a brewing noob I figured I'd ask.

This year for Christmas gifts we sent out cans of our award winning Flying Pug IPA to friends, customers and dealers

Those cans of 2015 origination ..2017 edition look familiar.....after being away overseas there was a undisclosed number if those in our cooler we enjoyed over Christmas....well done Rob...the quality of your beer has been translated over from the unmatched quality of AFS products. And as for Jennifer, you won't find a better person. Thanks for the gift Rob and Jen!!

Stainless steel kegs are rated for an internal pressure of at least 60 to 90 PSI without deformation, with a burst pressure of at least 300 PSI. I usually carb the kegs to 10-12 PSI on the ground. On a standard pressure day 29.92 in-hg equals 14.7 PSI. If you load a keg in your plane and climb to 10,000 FT the outside pressure drops from 14.6 psi to 10.1 psi so the keg would only see a pressure increase of 4.5 psi.



2. Do you fly with CO2 and/or Beer gas bottles (depending on the style) and a picnic tap for the destination?

Yes, I have a 5 lb CO2 tank and tap. The CO2 tank is usually around 450 psi and just like an O2 tank it gets Hydro Checked. The scary tank in my RV-10 is the 18 cu-ft Carbon Fiber Oxygen Tank that is pressurized to 2500 psi.

I'm just getting into home brewing (have an amber ale and a blonde ale in the fermenters as I type) so this is of great interest to me. I guessing it's not a issue, but being a brewing noob I figured I'd ask.

That's great, email me with any questions or advice.
