Yes, you can ferment in a keg. You will need to punch a hole in the top of the keg in order to allow carbon dioxide to escape during fermentation.

Can I ferment and serve from the same keg?
You can if you are careful and aware of your surround pressure. If you want to serve manually, make sure you disconnect your gas connector from the keg and release the pressure in the gas line going to the keg or you will end up with a big mess and possible personal injuries.
Does secondary fermentation produce CO2?
Secondary fermentation does produce CO2, but at a much slower rate than primary fermentation.
How do you turn a keg into fermentation?
It is not possible to turn a keg into fermentation.
How do you homebrew a keg of beer?
You need a brew kettle, a fermenter, a racking cane, tubing, and a keg. Boil the wort and cool it before adding it to the fermenter. Transfer the beer to the keg and force carbonate it.
How long does beer take to ferment under pressure?
Typically, beer takes about 2 weeks to ferment under pressure.
How do you carbonate beer in a keg?
To carbonate beer in a keg, the keg must first be purged of oxygen. Then, CO2 is introduced into the keg until the desired level of carbonation is reached.
How do you transfer beer from one keg to another?
To transfer beer from one keg to another, you will need a racking cane and some tubing. First, remove the tap from the full keg. Then, insert the racking cane into the full keg and attach the tubing to the end of the racking cane. Put the other end of the tubing into the empty keg. Open the valve on the full keg and allow the beer to flow into the empty keg. Once the keg is full, remove the tubing and replace the tap.
What are the benefits of secondary fermentation?
The benefits of secondary fermentation are that it can help to improve the clarity of the beer, as well as the flavor and aroma. Secondary fermentation can also help to remove any off-flavors that may be present in the beer.
When should I rack my beer to secondary fermenter?
It is typically recommended to rack your beer to a secondary fermenter after primary fermentation is complete and the beer has settled.
How long should you secondary ferment?
A secondary fermentation should last between two and four weeks.
How do I know when secondary fermentation is done?
The easiest way to tell if secondary fermentation is done is to check the specific gravity of the beer. If it is the same as when you transferred it to secondary, then it is done fermenting.
How do you know when your beer is done fermenting?
The easiest way to tell if your beer is done fermenting is to take a hydrometer reading. If the gravity is within 10% of the final gravity listed on the recipe, it is probably done fermenting.
