Changing the topic marginally. After consideration, carbonation may be an issue, in that once I have the beer in the keg, I connect the thing to my kegerator, set the psi and leave it until the keg runs dry.

Is this the appropriate process or is there a better way to do it.


Assuming a balanced and leak free system, set it and forget it is the way to go.

how often are you cleaning your faucet and lines?  Could it be creeping in that way?  If not cleaned regularly a faucet can get nasty fast.  The QD's also need to be taken apart and cleaned after every brew.

Sounds like carbonic acid, to me.
Run the pressure down, just a bit & see if it makes a difference.
