Kegging: How to?

    Hello
    I just got an old keg to try kegging instead of bottling.  Got it sanitised and my beer siphoned into it - just wondering, what's the story with the CO2 canister? Should I put it on immediately, or leave it a week or two? This keg is pretty old school - there's no pressure indicator or anything.
    Thanks for any tips.

    Don't you need a regulator?

    a regulator on the CO2 tank will tell you what pressure the beer is under, there's noting on the keg. i dont get what you mean by old school, kegs haven't changed much over the years. can we see a pic of it

    Ah right. Well I have a King Keg so if that's what the OP has to don't need the canister initially as the secondary fermentation is enough to force the beer out. You need the co2 if you drink a lot from the keg at a time as the pressure drops down more rapidly then.
