Well on Sunday I kegged my first beer ever, an imperial Irish red ale from AHS. Everything went smoothly and I pressurized it at 20 psi Sunday night. Secondary regulator once cold was at 550 psi.
On Thursday I was sure I would have a tasty carbonated beer waiting for me when I got off of work. I anxiously came home, poured my brew into the glass ... No head ... No carbonation! Wth!!
I must admit, I sampled a glass on Tuesday at 12 psi (turned down from 20) and it had some slight head when pouring. Now ... Nothing.
Frustrated, I cranked it up to 30 psi at 6 pm Thursday and came home just now to check it a day later. No different
What am I doing wrong? I thought kegging was supposed to be easier and less hassle than bottling, but so far it's giving me more headaches!
Ps - I carbed it back to 30 psi and served a glass, all foam but once it settled at least it was "ok." Not right though ...
