would be less DME than LME weight wise. And like Captain Damage said, probably from a recipie
that was eith...

Nah, you'll be fine. Beer is very forgiving (except the day after you drink 1 too many).There

Maybe your gauge is broken? And\or sometimes I've not gotten a good seal between the regulator
and the tank itself. I use 10lb tank on my kegorator with two taps. One lasted for months
