Reviving an ancient post. I am soon to be double batching in a 15 bbl uni, carbonating in the same tank, bottling 1/2 the batch, and then transferring the remainder to a BBT in the cooler 20-30' away. I have always transferred uncarbonated beer before via pump and carbed in the BBT. In reading the above, I am a little unclear on how the carbed beer will actually flow into the BBT, with a balance line and equal pressure, without being pushed by CO2. Can anyone pipe in on how they are transferring carbed beer from a uni to a BBT/ST?
