I just finished emptied (consumed) my 1st homebrew keg (Raspberry Wheat). After cleaning the keg and checking things out. I saw that the one poppet (ball lock) wasn’t setting right, so I swapped in a poppet (pin lock) and it fit perfectly even though it looks different.
Is there a real difference between ball lock and pink lock poppets?
Also, I cleaned and re-assembled the keg, I put it under pressure checking for leaks, I now have a leak at the pressure relief valve on the lid. It’s a Coca-Cola lid.
I read somewhere that those release valve are once and done and not replaceable, is this true? or would I be better off getting a lid with the pin-pull release.
On deck is Irish Blonde Ale & Scotch Ale
