    A Year of CO2 Leaks, Please Help

    As you gathered from the title, I've been fighting CO2 leaks for about a year, the whole time I've had the Kergerator. Usually, the pressure holds just fine for a few days or a few weeks, then all at once it completely drains over night/day. I never get more than one 5 gallon keg out of a 5lbs...

    7 Kegs at 25psi and I'm out of Co2, normal for 5lb tank or do I have a leak?

    Pretty much the title. I carbonate only water and kombucha, 5 gallons at a time with very little if any head space. Takes about 7 days at 25psi to fully carbonate. I was expecting to get 15-22 corny kegs out of a 5lb tank as per the micromatic website. Noticed lack of pressure today after...

    Let me first just say STOOPID! I kegged my first beer back in December to have an impressive IPA on tap for my cousins visiting from Colorado (I live in Niagara Falls, Canada). My keg setup is a used italian corny keg, someone's old regulator with the shutoff valve missing the handle and an...

    CO2 Leak in new keezer setup?

    Hi folks, I'm hoping someone can assist in an issue I'm having. I'm a first time kegger, and just finished building a 2 tap keezer. The two kegs I have were purchased used, so I spent a lot of time in cleaning them properly including inspecting all posts and replacing all o-rings with new ones...
