having a carbination issue
 
About once a month or so I make root beer and force carb it at 30 psi for some reason this time it wont carb. the only thing that I did differant was to only heat 1.5 gal of water to dissolve the sugar could this be a problem? I checked I have no co2 leaks.

No, the heat shouldn't affect this at all. How long have you had it at 30 psi? Have you tried giving it a shake?

Its been at 30psi for 2 weeks yes I shook it .....it's very weird. I would be super concerned if it were beer

Is it undercarbed, or flat? That is very weird. I really wonder if you do have a leak in the keg somewhere. A slow leak around one of the posts or the lid would do it.

problem solved..... my co2 tank was just about empty, right about the middle of the red line on the high pressure gauge. I changed out tanks and checked today and things were carbing up nicely. Thanks for your input. Bottoms up you crazy YOUPPER!
