I just started my first brew a couple of days ago and haven't yet decided
whether to go with bottles or a keg system.  I am kind of thinking that the
novelty of sanitizing and washing dozens of beer bottles will soon wear off.
I am also waiting to see how the brew turns out before investing in a keg
system.

Anyway, my newbie question is:

Is it possible or even beneficial to prime a keg?  I understand that because
you charge it with bottled CO2 that you don't need to but I was curious as
to how much impact secondary fermentation has on the characteristics of the
beer.

There is no benfit to priming a ke.  Force carbing is quicker, easier,
and more controllable.   There is no difference in the quality of
carbonation between priming and force carbing, despite what some
literature would have you believe.
