Sitting full of PBW right now. Get to keg my first beer next weekend!
Priming sugar, RIP. :jnj

Congrats! Welcome to the wonderful world of force carbonation! Now get ready to screw up and lose some beer as you learn from your mistakes :o All I will say is check for leaks, then check again, and finally, check one more time. Placing the whole tank and regulator under water in your bath tub works as a 100% sure fire test for leaks.

i spray concentrated soapy water.. bubbles become easily spotted within seconds of any magnitude leak that will drain a 20# bottle in no time!

I spray with Star San. Foams up just as nice and you don't get soap in places you don't want it.
