So I got 6 kegs from RCB. I rebuilt one, new orings on the lid and the posts (5 orings total per keg)... I clean it, toss beer in it and seal it.

The lid leaks a bit.. ok nothing new I've dealt with that on my other kegs. Flipped the lid around.. nope.. a day later the keg has no pressure.

OK.. add some keg lube to the lid oring. Yep, sealed.. woot.

Day later.. flat keg.


The mother effing IN post has a leak through the poppet. Ok.. take that off, keg lube...

Yep seals good..

Come home today.. keg doesn't have nearly the PSI it had (yes I know there is absorption..) but since I cannot exactly measure the PSI in there I think it still filled too much back up.

I've sprayed this ho down with Star-san to check for bubbles and nothing bubbles up that I see.
