That's...weird. Perhaps your fermentation isn't actually done, or the liquid is actually supersaturated somehow? Shouldn't work like that, though, and it certainly doesn't for me.

Agreed....whatever carbonation from pressure at room temp should be absorbed when the wort cools during the cold crash.

My latest went from 10psi at room temp to 0psi on the gauge after cold crash for a week.

Apparently you don't obey the laws of physics, either.

I'm glad the guy from onderbrew chimed in. I too think he's got a good product, just not for me. I'm glad he likes fermenting under pressure ☺.

Like I said before...sorry..don't know what to say. I crash after FG is reached plus another 11-18 days roughly, and spunding psi never drops... And I finish with perfect carbonation...Yay for me Hunh?

Is there a taste difference with fermenting under pressure? I just got a 10 gal keg and was wondering what to do with it. Fermenting under pressure!

I feel that my beers have fermented cleaner, no funky smell in my fermenter cornie kegs, nothing but good tasting beer.
