Forgot to use keg lube..
 
I kegged a batch of beer last night. I just remembered that I forgot to use keg lube. Do I need to use it or can I keep it as is? I don't really want to open it.

As long as it's not leaking, you can leave it alone. Keg lube aids in sealing the keg and preserving the o-rings. Going one round without it won't cause your rings to rot.

I suppose i should knock on wood right now, buuuuttttttt, in the 2 years I have been kegging I have not used keg lube once.

I never use the stuff unless I have a leak in 3 years I've used it twice

This kind of thing has been my experience too.

I use it every time as one more thing on the check list but I can't imagine that the local dive bar uses it at all on their kegs.

Wouldn't worry about it too much. :mug:

I don't use it unless I`m having problems getting it to seal. No leaks no worries...:mug:
