Ok, so went to check how my brown porter was doing in my kegerator.. and nothing was coming out the tap.. so I look down at the regulator, and it was on 0 outgoing pressure.

So i look at my keg, and there is no carbonation at all.

BTW I kegged this a few days before christmas.

so its been in the fridge, partially exposed.

Im sure it will be fine though.. right?

any thoughts?

It's a closed system so it shouldn't be an issue.

Are you out of gas or was the gas off? Anyway, the beer should be fine.

I am almost outta gas, but i had the outgoing pressure down to 0 i guess..

It looked fine.. and smelled great.. so i am not worrying.

Volunteer Welding Supply. They are across the street from "The Worlds Largest XXX Adult Bookstore". Or so the sign says. I've never been in there. Really.

It's not far from Frugals or All Seasons. I think a 5# tank is something like $8-10 bucks to fill. I also have a 10# tank that is an exchange tank and just swapped it for $12.
