First time kegger here.

When pouring my beer (from a picnic tap) it flows very slowly. However, if I put some weight on top of the disconnect, it flows beautifully.

I have new poppets, the disconnects are new. What could be the problem?

Maybe the posts themselves need to be replaced on the Keg? A lillte worn out or something?

Did you put the disconnects on the wrong posts, the posts are actually different sizes and so are the corresponding poppets. So if you put the gas on the liquid post it could be loose. This happens a lot with first time keggers who put the posts back on thinking they are interchangeable.
