    Pressure Barrels - More than you wanted to know!

    Thanks H I will, when we spoke last time, I was having problems with air bubbles in my beer blowing back when I poured a pint and then slowing down to a stop, I even bought a new cap and tried that but to no avail, admittedly this was a cheaper barrel from Young’s with bottom tap. The KK I am...

    Just got to find where I put the sparkler tap now, but the Schrader seems a good solution, thanks for your help

    Pressure Barrels - More than you wanted to know!

    Really enjoyed reading your thread, just a few pointers, I have been helped here in the passed, by yourself and a few of the other guys and all been most helpful, the point is ,you like using the PTFE tape, whilst others don’t and I have been told that the Cap on the KK does not need to be...

    Leaking Barrel Cap

    That’s why I filled the barrel with water, I lost a full barrel a couple of weeks ago, so if I am right, this is what is happening, between the water line and top of the barrel there is a leak, either the cap, or the barrel itself and when I have pressurised the barrel I check the cap and barrel...

    Leaking Barrel Cap

    I have actually got the barrel about 2/3 full, pressurised it and sprayed the top part with soapy water, but I couldn’t see any bubbles either at the cap end or on the body, I carnt now see it being the tap and If it was, I would obviously see the leak, so my only option that I can see is to...

    Leaking Barrel Cap

    I must admit, I don’t seem to get that same noise you usually get when you put Co2 in the barrel, I will remove the non return seal and blow through the valve and see if I get any resistance, I won’t be able to try the Co2 again till tomorrow, I have run out of bulbs.

    Leaking Barrel Cap

    I have just tried it with the seal as it was after I moved it, I put some Co2 in left it for a bit but no good , when I tried to pour it , it gave me about half pint of water then died, I think we are in the right area, I just think I might purchase a new cap assembly

    Leaking Barrel Cap

    Leaking Barrel Cap

    If I get the Young’s barrel fettled I can transfer my beer out of the KK into the Young’s and then concentrate on theKK

    Leaking Barrel Cap

    It looks like on close inspection, that the seal has ridden up towards the hole, do you think screwing the bulb holder on for the Co2 might have disturbed it?, so if I try to move the seal round, to get more coverage over the hole, that should hopefully do it, can you tell me again what the...

    Leaking Barrel Cap

    I have looked at the valve at the side, there is a seal there, but it doesn’t look to good.
