After warming the keg up some fermentation action was seen but it wasn't convincing enough for me...

    Stuck and Stumped

    Brewers- I could use your help here, I've been running into dead ends lately with much higher than expected final gravity. A month ago I brewed an AG imperial brown on a grainfather.

    Co2 stuck in regulator...?

    Got a kegerator conversion kit from KegCowboy and I am having problems with the dual-gauge regulator. When I turn on the Co2 both gauges respond correctly so pressure is def. making it in there, but it does not seem to make it to the hoses. I took off the hoses to make sure there wasn't a...
