Hello NB gang,
I made the jump to kegging and decided to get my latest batch moved and begin carbonating. I followed all steps as indicated, also did a lot of research on other techniques, etc. before I began. I have everything hooked up and noticed that there is beer leaking from the gas post on the key. I inspected the post itself and the washer was torn, so seemed pretty obvious where the issue was. Also noticed that the top of the post itself has a bend, so I went and purchased both items new from the local NB shop.
Replaced the parts and went back to check several hours later…same issue with beer leaking from the gas post/stem. I did tighten the valve down as tight as I could, which did go about another 1/4 turn. I am heading home to check to see if the issue still persists, but does anyone have any ideas here? Not sure if there is an issue with the keg or what not. I did purchase it new, so hope that is not the case.
If it would help, I can post a picture or a short video of where it is leaking from. Just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this and any insight.
