Wow...I am glad I found this. I kegged my first beer on Tuesday night and like you all I was sailing with a full bottle. Hit it with the co2 a few times to clear out the headspace, took the keg off gas and placed keg in the refrigerator to cool so I couldb carbonate the following morning. Next morning I got up, did the accelerated carbing technique and put the keg and co2 in the fridge. Got home from work last night and the tank was reading right above the red area.
Now I thoroughly checked for leaks prior to placing it in the fridge and none were discovered, so I was shocked to see that when I got home. Good to see that the cold impacts that. Do I need to drill a hole and run the gas line through the side, or is it ok to leave it in the fridge?
