Hi all! Just joined and its good to be here!

I have a quick question...

I am having a hard time getting beer to dispense from my Key system. Current setup is 2 (2.5G) kegs. 5lbs CO2 and picnic style dispenser and a double gauge regulator. All I get from either keg is a bit of a dribble. Sometimes nothing at all. They have pressure as I can bleed some off. (roughly 10-15psi - kegs slightly below room temp approx 68 degrees)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in Advance

Beer frozen?

Are the connectors seated correctly?

Have the right one on the right post.

Oh heehee forgot to add. Connectors are on correctly and beer is slightly below room temp.

I just tested the picnic dispenser with ball lock to a carbonator cap and it seemed to work fine. If the pressure is too high i.e. 20psi will it not dispense from a keg?

Did you clean the keg tubing? It may be clogged. Jack up the pressure to 30-40 psi and blow the tube clean. Then lower pressure down to original dispensing pressure and bleed excess off. I have also frozen kegs by accident.
