Hi all! I had been thinking of homebrewing for some time and decided to take the leap when we moved into our new house. The new house had a bar in the basement and in an adjacent storage room the old owner left a working chest freezer the perfect size for 4 kegs! It was a sign!
Anyway, I installed a temp controller, collar, lines, etc. Everything worked great! I needed to refill a keg and shut off my main co2 tank knob (I wanted to move some things around). The regulator read 12 psi. The next day, the regulator read 0. I unhooked all of the keg gas qd's and turned on the main flow. The pressure when back to 12 psi. I turned it off at the tank and waited a day. Back to 0. For the next test, I cut the flow using the on/off knob attached to the output of the regulator leading to the manifold. I pressurized back to 12, turned off the tank, and the needle has remained at 12 psi for 4 days which makes it seem like the regulator is fine.
I took the manifold and all qds and submerged them in a large pan of water. I pressurized the system and saw no bubbling. I am stumped. Is this type of slow seep normal? Being new, I just am not sure as to what is normal loss and what isn't.
Thank you to everyone for any help you might be able to offer! Once I get everything set back into place I will have to take some pics of my finished build!
