I wanted to take just a minute to go into a little more detail on the kegging process.
What you see here is my CO2 canister with a regulator attached. The two gauges on the regulator tell you the pressure of the CO2 in the canister (left gauge) and then the pressure of your keg (top gauge). There is an adjustable screw in the middle that you can see. This allows you to alter the pressure in your keg. Different brews may call for different levels of CO2. This also allows you control over the way that your beer will be carbonated if you use the force carbonation method (http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/45577 - listen for a description). In the end, no matter how you carbonate, this CO2 will allow you to push your beer through the feed hose and into your glass.
