So I’ve had a hell of a time with my first kegging experiment, but I finally got it kegged up today. So far, I am seriously regretting the whole kegerator purchase, but whatever.
I put the beer in about two hours ago and set the PSI to 30. However, I just checked and the PSI reads 0: there is no CO2 coming out of the tank!! I should add that the tank was brand new, fully tested, and had, at one time, CO2 coming out of it.
Can anyone tell me what happened? How could I possibly have gone through an entire tank of CO2 in an hour? There was no leakage that I could hear or detect.
I am also wondering what to do with the beer that I kegged. It just had a shit load of CO2 pumped into it - except when I tried to purge the keg no CO2 was released. (Clearly something went wrong)
I really like this beer and I don’t want to lose it. Though I need to figure out how to solve my kegging problem, right now my biggest concern is saving my precious beer! I am thinking I will bottle it, but I am afraid to do so after I just put so much CO2 into the tank. Will that be a problem? Will that effect carbonation? Cause bottles to explode? Or is something so wrong that there isn’t any CO2 in the beer anyhow?
Guide me, please!
