After whatsitbeen ... 8 years of brewing? I finally kegged a batch of my Nice To Wheat You Ale last week.
The Keg Charger says "Never attach ball/pin valve to charger first!" So, I put the valve on the keg ... and all of the gas leaks out. I think "that's OK" because I am going to put more in. So I screw the charger on, and put in gas, and unscrew the charger ... and all the gas leaks out. So I realize I am an idiot, but if I can't put the charger on the valve first, and I can't put the valve on the keg first, what CAN I do?
Second. When I pull a beer, some beer stays in the line. Guess I never really thought of that. Tis OK? Won't get icky in there?
