Default Force kegging newbie ?'s

So yesterday I kegged my first all grain batch!, Whoop!, A Coconut porter. Well anyway I racked into my two Cornys, lubed everything up, set my reg for 40 psi and popped the lid in place, then I took some soapy water and checked for leaks and all seemed well. I dropped it down to 30psi and rolled em around for 8 min each.

Then I let em sit for 30 hours and went to take a sample but it's barley coming out! I even kicked it up to 50 psi and tried that to serve. Checked my lines, disconnects and taps. Dip tube clogged maybe? I did switch the gas/ liquid line out and ran a shot of 40 psi thru the out post but still not much going out. Any suggestions guys?

If you have a ball lock, see if the keg has pressure by pulling on that ring, if it's a pin lock push on the gas IN poppet. If the keg has pressure, try shaking it. Turn your regulator back down to 13 PSI.

If you switched the gas and liquid lines, you'd still get gas hissing out. IF you did this don't let the beer back feed into the co2 regulator.
