Have watched 6 to 10 videos on kegging/force carbing before attempting. I'm stumped. Thanks.
Even totally flat beer will flow - if the keg seals, the plumbing is proper (correct QDs on the right posts, gas flowing to the In post and a working faucet of some sort hooked up to the Out post) and the keg tubes aren't plugged up (did you dry hop with whole hops, by any chance?)
Make sure the correct QDs are actually seated down on the posts (there's a fairly evident "snap" when you get them down all the way) and you don't have the gas QD connected to the Out post
Next is to make sure you actually have gas flowing to the In post(check you valves, etc).
Once you get to that point you can do a quicky test without anything connected to the Out post by briefly pushing the Out post poppet down just enough to get a dribble (fair warning: if you go much further prepare for a beer shower!
) and if you do get a bit of beer dribbling out, hook up the beer QD and see if you get something out of your faucet...
