I did some research today and confirmed it can't be anything on the gas side. I also took the liquid side off and hit the top of the poppet and I got a beer shower. So the kegs should...

kegging sours is fine. Most people have a dedicated tap and keg for it but I've read that you should be good if you just clean out the lines after the keg is kicked. At the least i'd give the keg a...

fermcap is a godsend. Works great for the boil as well as for fermentation. I gill my 3 gallon better bottles almost to the bottom of the neck and have very few issues.

I had a similar issue a few weeks ago. I had a citra IPA that was overcarbed and was WAY too mango-ey for my tastes. I brewed up a simcoe IPA and mixed the two in a keg. I just chilled the citra...

not if you boiled it and got it mixed well.

It's sitting at 120* now. I tried a sample this morning and while it's tart, it's not as much as I want it to be. I'm not brewing until tomorrow so I'm going to let it keep going until then.
