On my second keg. The first keg I had no problems with staying at one presure all the way through. The second one held 15 pounds of presure while carbing for a week and a half. Now that I am drinking out of the second I can't get it to stay at one pressure. If I put 5 or 6 pounds on it and leave it it will hold that pressure but when I start pouring beer it just drops in pressure and I have to turn the co2 up to get pressure back into it to pour. I have checked for leaks and nothing. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong. Thanks for the help.

Sounds like you haven't set the pressure on your regulator. When the pressure drops, turn the screw on the regulator to read 5lbs. You may have to adjust up or down a little to get a good pour.

No it doesn't sound normal to me. There may be a problem with your regulator.
The cornie should hold whatever serving pressure you set the regulator to.
