When I keg a batch of beer, do I still prime it like I would with bottles? I have the CO2 tank for the tap so I'm a little iffy on the logistics of that part.
If you want to carb with sugar you need to use less sugar to account for the lower headspace (relative to the amount of beer, compared to bottles). For most beers, 115g of sugar will do the job.
Tap 2: Kolsch
Tap 3: Lil' Runt Mild
The graph makes sense to a degree, I just want to make sure I'm clear on the particulars.
The only time you need to add sugar to prime is when you need the yeast and sugar to ferment a bit to produce the co2. You cannot filter the yeast out doing this method as it's needed to eat the priming sugar.

Or you can carb with sugar - its upto you; both work.
