I have a two keg system with one regulator. One with home brew keg and one commercial sanke tap. Yesterday I had both unhooked to C02 for an hour or so while I changed lines and did some work to kegerator. Both have had C02 since. Today I poured a beer from commercial keg. It tasted flat even though it had tons of head. It is at 40 degrees and 11 psi. Could it have gone flat??? I am confused.

Or does it need to carb up again and needs time?

I have found that commercial kegs tend to be carbed at higher volumes than the standard homebrew 2 vols at 40 degrees. Could be that the pressure equalized between the HB and commercial. Also, I had a friend whose sankey taps o ring blocked gas in and caused this kind of problem.
