So i have a keg that I have used in the past and racked a beer into it two weeks ago. I have poured a sample and it is not carbed at all.
So i have been a freak about the kegs not holding pressure, so i would hit the keg with 12 pull the gas connector off, let it sit overnight, check it in the am to see if it had pressure. It would so i would hit it with some more gas (normally the beer will absorb it a little at a time so this was normal to me), etc. until i was confident that it was not leaking.
Well it appears as though i should never be confident that it is not leaking because it sounds like it has to be or this would be carbed
Well.. here is where I am confused. If the tank is still very full and therefore pressure to the keg at the 12 psi, then wouldnt the beer still carbonate. If the leak is slow enough to still hold pressure (even if it is not holding the entire 12 psi) then why would the beer not be at least slightly carbonated by now?
