ive had them about 6 weeks, they were new when i got them.
the 3944 was nice and swollen, the 1056 not so much.
i had a little mishap with the wort for the 3944, the oring from the corny keg fell in it (whoops) hahaha, so i put a new oring on last night and noticed that there was some trub forming (good sign).
the CO2 is being released via a disconnect on the "in" post, used it before and it works a treat, the other i will vent manually via pressure relief on top of lid
im going to go get some dry us-05 tonight... think the 3944 is working, just slow...the 1056, i have no idea about :/
