The problem with sanke kegs is removing and replacing the retaining ring on the valve/spear to allow thorough cleaning and sanitizing. If someone would manufacture a simple, cost effective tool kit to do that, I'd be using them. Come to think of it, I think I will work on that.
As you drink the beer, more CO2 needs to be put in the keg to maintain the carbonation level. For beer at 65-75F°F, that's quite warm, and you'll need around 25psi to maintain the carbonation level. My guess is that you weren't holding the keg at this pressure, so it slowly loses carbonation as the beer is consumed. Dispensing at this pressure can be ...
You didn't say what the PSI was on your regulator. It sounds like no CO2 was going into the keg or too little. What did you set your gauge at? How did the beer come out of the faucet or picnic tap? was it slow, or fast? If it was slow, then I would say your priming sugar worked and your keg held a seal. But over time you created more headspace in the keg ...
So I finally got it all fixed up. What I ended up using was just replacing the piece connected to the homebrew keg with a different piece I got at a local homebrew shop for a few bucks. Basically this allowed me to screw on the size of barbed connector I needed.
