Yes thanks mark, I took the pic straight down on it.
I assumed the Teflon tape could just make it more difficult to get a firm seating of the gasket. But before dumping 5 lb of co2 into the freezer I figured I would ask. I will just snug up the connection then give it a little more to be sure.
I have my first keg in the freezer now carbonating at 10 psi at about 38-40 deg. My biggest challenge is to just leave it alone and quit checking it. I did check all my fittings again when everything was at the low temp. Seems ok, high pressure gauge dropped some but I guess that is just the low temp.
Thank you for the help!
