More times than not, when I ferment under pressure, I typically let the CO2 go to waste. Not this time! I sanitized and purged 3 kegs so far. Still 2 more in the garage.

I could easily swap out on my next purge. What's the advantage?

I think part of my thought process was if anything got into the keg I wouldn't push it up through the liquid post.  I can also only put one keg in line and still have access to the gas side.  no idea if I really thought this through or not :P

Ok. I guess my uneducated reason for mine is that since some of my kegs have floating dip tubes, I figure it's good to have the sanitizer flow through them. Probably not much different either way. And, I thought I had a couple more in the garage but apparently I did this process in September as my other 2 kegs have tape saying S+P 9/14/21!

Same. I have the gas go in on beer and out on gas.

Oh I never put sanitizer through these things lol!

Obviously either way works so no big deal :cheers:
