Something is off. Are you certain you out the proper oring at the bottom of the lever ball?

Without seeing the inside, is it possible that there are seals that don't engage if not fully open? There is never a reason to open part way as it will not control the pressure.I turn off the CO2 in case I have a leak. I believe that rising stem valves like those used on gas tanks will leak unless fully open or fully closed.
I do the same and have the same understanding regarding the valve. I don't know that they "will" leak, but it's more likely.
I would go ahead and get a 20lb or 15lb tank. Chances are it costs the same per fill as the 5lb. At least it does over by here.
Well, I was thinking of an 18%+ beer. I hear incremental feedings and aeration help. But I've never felt like I wanted to make one so I haven't tried any of the tricks.There is an episode of the Jamil Show where Sean Paxton discussed doing this for a DFH 120 clone. He mentioned the only reason he did it was because having a conical made it easy to pull off some beer to add sugar to. Sounds like a complete PIA, but I do want to try it sometime.
I've been using a cheap hot plate from Wally World to boil 1-gallon test batches. It takes a loooong time to reach a slightly rolling boil. I'm going to try my Coleman camp stove and white gas for my next test batch.Outdoors I hope
