Keg problems
« on: December 03, 2010, 04:50:27 PM »
I seem to have an over CO2 issue with my beer.    I follow the recomended procedure.  Once a keg is over done can it be fixed?

Sure, just open the pressure relief valve on the keg & let CO2 escape. Then CO2 will be released from the beer into the headspace. You may have to do that a number of times, but bringing the carbonation down is easily doable.

Disconnect the gas and pour some brews. It'll settle down pretty quick.
