I have a Hambleton Bard Pressure Barrel http://www.arkwrightshomebrew.com/product_info.php/cPath/25_37/products_id/149,It
contains 39 pints of Almondbury Old that has been kegged for 16 days(for people to drink on my birthday (April 8th).Tonight i sampled a pint(for 'Quality Control' you understand
),when i went back to the keg for further QC sample, the tap was dripping(my home made produce...slowly dripping on the floor
I drained the pressure from the keg and layed it on its side to inspect the tap without beer leaking out,cannot see any damage to the tap but it is not seating properly when the tap is turned off.
The sediment has been stirred up by this as well!!!!!!!!!
Will this beer still be ok in 4 days,what with being exposed to air(for about 2 mins)and shaken about a bit(you can see a small head on top of the beer through the side of the keg)?
PS if most hasnt leaked out by then !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!A drip every 2-3 seconds.....any mathematicians care to work it out for me??????????????
