Gday mate, yeah you probably should of left some head space, You'll have to be very careful if you're letting out pressure or when you hook your gas line up you could get beer spurting into the lines. In a bottle you need headspace as when gases are produced and things expand the "air" headspace takes the pressure with no headspace the bottle can break. Keg shouldnt break but if the gas line is submerged there could be issues. Cheers mate!

Hey Gash, got a quick question, was thinking about putting 2 All INN citra wort kits in the fermentersaurus, 30L, Then after ferment, adding the 5L cooled boiled water with priming Dex to each keg and filling, What do you think?
