That's good news. Maybe it was stuck and you freed it up. So pour a little water on top and see if bubbles are flowing. And is the pressure running in the green zone?

Let's stop it from blowing up. The relief may have been installed wrong. If necessary, unscrew the cap and re-install the relief bubble per instructions.

Ok so i reinstalled the pcv and still no bubbles. Should they occur when it gets in the green zone? Aslo when it gets to the red it doesnt get very far in the red but when it gets there i always release back to green

It takes quite a bit of water on top to show bubbles. You could let it go a ways into the red zone. But don't let it sit on the maximum for any length of time. Hopefully it will bubble somewhere in the middle of red and then get broken in and drop to green.

Keep us posted on how it turns out. The ability to ferment with pressure is an advanced feature.

To a limited extent, yes. I'd guess that fruit might not drop with all the carbonation present and could clog the tap.

If you are talking about dry hop - it worked fine for me but I did move it to secondary to get the hop particles to drop out.

When you let off the pressure at this point, it is gonna foam up big time. So let the pressure off a little at a time to avoid an overflow.

Did your pcv start working?

Very interesting, seems like it's just a fancy Mr. Beer?
