I'm guessing it's the beard in your avatar picture that is throwing him off, lol.

You got it, I thought yoop was the old timer in the avatar.

Quick follow up question- My co2 bottle has dropped from about 860psi and seems to be holding at 700psi now. Is this a normal drop in co2 pressure or indicative of a small leak somewhere?

Those gauges really aren't that dependable. A temperature drop (like putting it in the kegerator) makes it drop. Usually, it'll stay stable until there is almost no gas at all in the tank, and drop to 0 immediately. It's because the co2 is liquid, but comes out as a gas, I guess.

Sounds like you nailed, the co2 bottle was room temp before putting it into the kegerator. Thanks yoop
