I have a keg of Sprecher Root Beer that's been sitting full (5 Gallons) at 35 PSI for about a week and a half. There's no carbonation in the root beer and the first three glasses tasted like motor oil. Real strong in taste, almost like we were straight drinking the syrup rather than carbonated root beer. This is the first time I've done this so I'm not sure what is wrong/what I should be doing. I don't even have a beer on-tap as of yet.
Based on the other threads, I'm using 10ft line with the stiring/mixing nozzles in the keg to control foam issues. I don't even see any bubbles per say in the mixture that's coming out. Any suggestions? I'm starting to think the syrup has seperated from the water and is laying at the bottom of the keg... I'm thinking I might need to shake the thing every day or another week or two in order to get it mixed up/carbonated... Ideas? Thanks!
