Without a carb stone as shown above, hooking the gas to the "out" post is silly. It's just going to bubble (big bubbles) up to the top and collect there anyways, with probably not a whole lot of CO2...

Not sure what you mean by losing pressure. After you had it on 30psi, then changed to 12, you still need to keep the gas on. If you disconnect the gas before the beer is carbed, then the pressure...

What was your recipe, did it include flour or late-addition starch to keep it cloudy? Or do you think it's just yeast in suspension?
