I would fully strip this down and first of all steep in boiling water, then santisie throughly, then give a vigorous cold rinse. Could be you have some eggs in there somewhere, which would explain the small size and sporadic appearance. Do you have other kegs and is this happenning with them?

I was about halfway finished eating a sandwich but I've seemed to have lost my appetite.

I'm finding myself REALLY glad I invested in a set of these. Cheap insurance.

Are you using a standard faucet or a perlick forward sealing faucet. If it's a regular faucet it could very well be mold growing inside the faucet. It will come off when the beer flows and will look like slimy slugs. Mold grows very fast and given 24 hours it could return. I would untap the keg, take the faucet off and dis assemble. If there is mold it will be growing on the sealing plunger thing inside. Take the nut off by the handle pull the plastic pieces out with the lever then you should be able to push the plunger ( don't know the official name) out. See if it's growing your slugs on it.

Looking at other current threads, did you moisturize your arms and use a star san breast pump when you transferred? Maybe TSA was right? (sorry for the obscure reference for those who missed the old and new threads re: take some advice.)
