Evening all. I have had my old ale in the pressure barrel conditioning for a week or so. The o ring that seals the tap must be slightly perished as it is now leaking quite a lot. (See picture). Does anybody have a temporary fix for this? At this rate there won't be any left for Christmas. I don't really want to transfer to another barrel and start conditioning again. Any help would be great.
