Hello, all. First, despite this being my first post, I have been a long time lurker and am so thankful to all of you who regularly post on this forum. It has been a lifesaver to me many, many times.
Now, on to my current predicament. I recently purchased some equipment to begin kegging. I've been brewing for about a year, so this is obviously a big milestone for me. Because I am impatient, I was hoping to force carb, but have run in to a problem.
I attached the line to the keg, set the tank to 30 psi, and could hear co2 entering the keg. After about 10 seconds, though, air began to escape rapidly through the pressure valve(?) on the lid of the keg (the raised dealy on the center). I pressed on a poppet and let all the co2 escape, rechecked all of the connections, etc, then tried again. Same thing.
The lid does not have a manual relief valve, see pic below. Am I doing something wrong?
