Hey all, I am a regular forum lurker who has used this site for awesome info for the past few years. Thanks for all the great advice!
I recently started kegging (what a godsend), and I encountered a problem with my English Pale Ale that is currently carbonating. When I switched the liquid and gas connections from my one corny to the English Pale Ale corny, all was well. I sampled the Pale and decided to switch back to the other keg, (which had a NB St Paul Porter inside, fyi) but the poppet valve on the gas in post seems to be stuck a bit open, so gas comes out at a pretty rapid rate.
It is the second beer in that keg which is a reconditioned one from Chi. I just left the gas and liquid lines on that English Pale keg for now so I don't lost carbonation. My question is, can I disassemble the gas in post and poppet and clean them out quickly and reattach with the beer still inside? I figure I can just put some tin foil over the space where the post is and will lose some carbonation. Thanks again for the all the tips!
