Brewed a Pale Ale 48 hours ago and I haven't seen anything yet. When do I start to worry? What steps do I take to fix it?

I have a spare regulator and tank as well so I can do it either way. It will just be easier if I can just shoot it up once and put it in the corner and forget about it for a month.

What if I don't want to use priming sugar. Can I put the beer in the keg with no pressure? Do I need to keep a minimal amount of pressure on it?

Keg disaster

I kegged yesterday. Found out I have a co2 leak tonight. Tank is empty. Negative effects onto my beer? I switched to another tank, pumped up the psi to 30 and unhooked the air and turned it off.

I'm going to try the auto siphon. I have the hardest time deciding what to buy. I don't want cheap crap. I'd rather spend the extra money up front and get a good product.

Yeast

I've done a few batches so far and I have only used dry safale yeast. Do you guys prefer liquid yeast? What are the pros/cons that you guys see between the two?
