First, the beer is cloudy. It's a bright yellow, opaque beer. A milk-like, cloudy opacity. Okay, I thought, Maybe if it sits in the cooler a week and carbonates, it will clear. And if it doesn't I can filter it.
So I filled the keg, put some CO2 on it, and let it sit for an hour. When I took the keg out to the beer fridge, I noticed that the lid hadn't sealed. So I re-pressurized the keg, and watched as beer bubbled out around the lid.
So I checked a couple other keg lids, and none of them worked. Although I did get one to hold pressure while the gas was on. So it's sitting in the fridge, hopefully carbonating. I will check it Friday, and if I need to, I'll filter it. Then I have to re-carbonate it to have it ready to ship to Nationals by Monday.
