It is. I just cranked it up a bit more and it took the gas. I didnt know if it's normal for the pressure to drop as beer absorbs the c02. I thought it would stay constant once it was absorbed. Unless the pressure dropped because the beer absorbed the 2 volumes and the regulator wouldnt push more gas into it.Is the gas still connected and turned on?
Just rechecked... staying at 13psi. Thanks all for the input and help. Merry brewing!It's not uncommon for regulators to exhibit a bit of drift from an initial setting - these are rather crude devices, after all.
If you rotated the regulator pressure control to get to a 13 psi setting it wouldn't surprise me to see a drift to 10 (though that would be on the edge - one or two psi would be more typical from an initial setting).
Re-adjust the pressure and I bet it sticks there 'til the cylinder runs out...
