Hi, I am hoping someone can help me. I have one keg in my inventory that has been having problems with flow into/out of the keg. When I siphon in through the Out disconnect, I can feel the flow is restricted as theres pressure when I am pumping the auto siphon. It then takes about 5 times as long to siphon the 5 gallons. Then, on the dispensing side, the flow out is a trickle. I've tried replacing the poppet on the original Liquid Out post, nothing. I then replaced the Liquid Out post altogether, nothing. Between every use, I completely disassemble the keg & clean/sanitize every part so I know its not something clogged. The keg I just racked to was perfectly clean & sanitized but the flow was restricted even with the new Liquid Out post/poppet.
Does anyone have any ideas here as I am stumped? Could the dip tube be a hair too long & is too tight against the bottom of the keg? But on the other hand this keg used to flow fine. Could there be anything on the Gas In side that could be causing an issue? The only thing I have not replaced on the Liquid Out side is the gasket on the dip tub & the dip tube itself. Would tightening the post too much cause any sort of restriction? I'm at a loss here....
