    Keggerator help

    I bought a 2 keg keggerator, and converted it to 6 taps,and have 6 corney's in it. I have a 7 way splitter hooked to my CO2. The problem I have, is that even after several months, some have noticeable more co2 than others. I thought they would all equalize. No?

    Storing my Westie 12s

    I was fortunate to be able to bring back some Westvletern 12s from Belgium. I'd like to let some age, if I can resist drinking them. My brew room stays around 74 degrees, and my beer fridge at at 42 degrees. Would you store them in the fridge or at room temp?
