hi all,

So first time kegging for me today, and after a little hiccup caused by a fault o ring i seem to be on my way.

Managed to clean the keg well and put the cleaner through the line etc all without incident.
Have just transferred my beer to the keg, sealed it up and connected the gas inand beer out... As soon as i apply pressur it just wants to force beer out of the gun???
I can disconnect the beer out and it seems to be holding the pressure ok, working therelease valve works as designed.

Sounds like the guns foobarred. Maybe the trigger is not closing fully.
Connect up the gas & spray soapy water on the beer out post & see if it's leaking there.
My money's on the gun though.

Sounds like the gun to me as well, some have a screw at the back that will adjust the flow, if you have one like that make sure it's unscrewed or at least back it off a little.
