About three weeks ago, I kegged a saison. I'm in the "set it and forget it" group, so I set my regulator to 15 psi, which has always worked for me in the past. Chest freezer temp at about 40 degrees F, full tank of CO2, not seeing any leaks in the keg. So after a couple of weeks, I figured it should be good to go, so I tapped it... and nothing. I got some foam, as expected, but once that dissipated, no carbonation at all, flat as can be. So I tinkered with the fittings, checked to see if I could find a minor leak and couldn't, and hooked it up again for another week.
Fast forward to this evening, figured I'd try again... and same result. Initial burst of foam, then no carbonation whatsoever. I am just not seeing a problem. I'm going to check again for leaks this evening, but I'm getting plenty of pressure out of the pressure release valve and I can hear the gas coming into the keg after I release pressure, the gage on the regulator is showing no drop in pressure at all during this whole period, and my other kegs seem to be working perfectly. In fact, the last beer I had in this keg was perfectly carbonated.
I'm at a loss and beyond frustrated, to the point where I'm beginning to question whether or not kegging is worth the effort. Any thoughts are more than welcome. Thank you!
