So, I sometimes run commercial craft beer in my kegerator. I have a sankey "low profile" coupler. So, a keg kicked a few weeks ago, I decoupled it, and put the coupler in a pitcher of water (lines still connected). Fast forward a few weeks to tonight. I am ready to force carb a corny of homebrew. Now, my two co2 lines in this kegerator are connected via a T, so I simply cannot turn off the gas to the sankey. I hooked up my homebrew and turned on the gas, and the sankey coupler is leaking. Leaking enough where I can hear it. My thought is that being submerged for a few weeks might have messed up a seal or something. The collar on it is turned to the off position.
I am thinking about putting it in the toaster oven on 'warm' for an hour or two in an attempt to dry it out.
Thought? I was always under the impression that these couplers should NOT leak when they are decoupled.
