gday guys
I have some perlick 525s and have noticed that when i empty a keg they dont seal but they will seal when there is beer in the line. ive tried pushing the tap handle all the way back and it seals but whrn you let it go it will leak any ideas? Ive tried new seals but still no good.

Why don't you just take the gas off? Keg's finished no need to leave gas on? If it's not leaking beer then you got no worries.

I dont have Perlicks but it might have something to do with
the surface area of liquid forcing a seal
You cant drink an empty keg
Ive got a couple of guns that just keep on shooting :D

because if you leave half a schooner in the the keg you dont know it's empty they seem to leak when there is no liquid pressure behind them
