Forgot to put the spring & black poppet

Recommended Posts

Hi Dale, how long has it been this way? Has the keg carbonated?

(Rod will probably respond soon, bit of a keg guru)

Hi, what happens when you forget to put the spring & poppet into the black valve when you keg your beer.Is there any way i can save the beer ?

Short answer no.

 

Are you definite that it isn't in there and it is another spring that you found, there is little point opening up the black valve as that will release all the carbonation. In saying that, I think with out the spring and poppet in it, it will not pressurise correctly either when you connect it to the Brewflo. If it makes you feel any better, I did do something similar and I lost a lot of beer from the keg when I opened and put spring in, redid it up and stuck it in the Brewflo ( lost maybe 2 litres). If you open the valve, do it over a sink, it will get messy.

If you can, put the keg into the fridge, cool it down first that way, then release the valve. You will lose a proportion of your beer, no 2 ways around it, then you can stick it into the flo connect it and drink immediately The good news is you never do this twice, you will be double/triple checking from now on

Thanks so much i will check it tomorrow and hopefully it will be all good!

Rob’s suggestion to put it in the fridge is very sound as co2 will be absorbed as the temperature goes down so at 3-4C you’ll have less of a loss. Let us know how it turns out.
