Attaching a liquid disconnect to a gas line then onto the "out" would not make getting it on/off any harder than usual. Just FYI. I do this often.

So this keg has been on gas for nearly 4 weeks now, at least part of that at 30 psi, and still no joy?

You aren't trying to carb this stout up with beer gas, are you?

Cheers!

It's on regular co2. It is carbed, don't get me wrong. Just not nearly the same as the 3 other kegs. It isn't horrible, and may be on the ver low side for style actually.

Seems like a pretty high FG, even for a stout. I wonder if that's why it's having so much trouble carbing. A liquid that dense may not be able to hold much carb.

What was the OG?

Wait - that's the final gravity?
I think pancake syrup might be lower than that!

Gotta be a mistake...

Cheers!

you must have a leak somewhere, Id try to reseal the keg lid, remove it clean it, put it back on and crank it to 30psi. You could also spray some water and look for bubbles.

Do you hear the CO2 going into the keg when you turn the PSI up? Also this may sound ridiculous, but I have done more bone head moves... Is the little valve off the regulator turned on?
