How would I test for leaks on the posts of the kegs themselves? Just disconnect the hoses and spray with soapy water? Or would that not test the o-rings seal?

I just washed the inside of my...

UPDATE - Keg wasn't frozen. The dip tube seems to have been aligned poorly such that it was up against the bottom of the keg rather than down in the little "trough". I made a pin-lock socket tonight...

I'm not 100% without doubt certain, but I'm pretty darn sure. I can hear the co2 rush out if I use the pressure release tool (pin locks) and I can hear it ... creep in... if I shake the keg around a...

Frozen keg?

I just finished my keezer and moved an ESB I've been aging for awhile (really didn't want to bottle it...) into a keg and threw it in the keezer to chill and then put it some gas. In the meantime, I...

You could do that, but... 1) soda is car bed much higher than beer - like 30psi, so you'll need a second regulator and lots of bev line hooked to it. And, 2) you can get concentrate and just mix it...
