Well, 5lbs lasts 8-10 cornies, tops. That's almost 5x as much CO2 as a 20oz tank, so I'd guess it would last about 3 cornies.
Primary: English Mild
On tap: Pale Ale, Lancelot's Wheat, English Brown Ale, Steam Beer, HoovNuts IPA
Bottled: MOAM, Braggot, Raspberry Melomel, Merlot, Apfelwein, Pyment, Sweet mead, Cabernet

How did you find it? Spray with Starsan solution? I did that before but didn't see anything. I'll try again, it must be a pretty small leak to last three months, no?
