    that’s exactly what I did. So in future turn the gas supply off at the canister, then just use the release valve on keg leaving the reg on 30psi or whatever, and it will sort itself out.

    it was mainly foam so maybe it was over carbonated and releasing pressure created foam, and it was this foam tha twas pushed out by pressure. only had about 16 litres in a 19 lite keg so plenty of room, and it was standing straight. good to know about disconnecting the quick connect - can you...

    thats likely it- dropped it very quickly from 30 - 0, at room temp too. I hope ive got them on the wrong posts as that will be the problem identified. If i havn't not sure how to ensure it doesnt happen again- i was under impression the gas fitting were one way only! searching around i found...

    If your beer tap is higher than the bottom of the dip tube, then its is pressure overcoming gravity to dispense- no?

    yes, turned it the PSI down to zero, and then released pressure from the keg valve. it was ok at first with the valve on the regulator releasing excess gas as i turned it down to zero as usual. Not sure exactly when the beer started coming out of it- that is to say if it was before i opened the...

    ok thanks for feedback. when i changed the post over after iitial blockage i was able to turn off gas without incident, which makes me possibly discount the above- unless the pressure was greater this time?

    OK one problem has lead to another it seems and now i am a confused to feck. Went back last night to pull a beer and clogged again- fair enough. so in order to remove post and dip again i first made sure turned the gas supply off via the regulator off and tried to release gas through the...

    first time ive encounted it and ive brewed many hop bombs. i think it was down to longer conditioning- effectively cold crashing in the keg for a month. Don't cold crash in FV as i worry about oxygen getting in.

    Cheers chaps As you can see blocked dip tube held by my lovely assistant! Took a clean and sanitised one from another keg, got about 100 mm but blocked again. More hops blocking? This wasn’t massively dry hopped so not sure why. Although I did condition it for longer than usual in fridge.

    The keg now has no presure. It lost it very quickly so that why I checked for leak. It was on 10 psi for 2 days. But even with leak it should still dispense under presure

    Also covered in star San and can’t find any leak pushed gas into beer output. Gas presure only moved to about 10 and I struggled to turn it up so am thinking the post itself is blocked???

    Frozen? Hadn’t thought of that but fridge as usual temps so should be ok if I blow gas down beer tube i Need to release all gas first then? Or make sure I do a big quick burst of 20psi etc?
