I recently got a 5 gallon ball lock corny keg, but am having nothing but trouble with it. I was originally getting nothing but foam coming out of it, so I upgraded the liquid line from 5 feet to 10 feet. After the conversion, I would get a lot of air pockets in the beer line, and eventually it just stopped flowing altogether.
I know that:
- the keg has pressure (from pulling the relief valve)
- The liquid line dip tube going into the keg is not clogged.
- The poppet came loose once and beer went flying everywhere.
- There don't seem to be any leaks anywhere in the setup.
The poppet in the liquid post keeps falling out and will not stay up in the post, such as:
Could this be the problem?
