I am new to kegging and only have 3 batches kegged under my belt and have a quick question about getting the keg to the right pressure.
I wanted to put the keg on 13 PSI. I disconnected the gas line, set the regulator to 13 PSI and then reconnected it to the keg. Well this morning, 12 hours later, its only reading at 11 PSI. I assumed that if i set the regulator to the pressure I wanted and then hooked it up, it would eventually equalize to the pressure I set.
Now this isnt a big deal at all, but I'm just wondering what is the best/correct way to get the keg to the pressure I want. Should I hook it up to the keg and then dial in the pressure?
