Brite tank
« on: November 21, 2020, 10:13:33 AM »
Hello, 1st time using a brite tank (600 liter) to carbonate beer. I set the regulator to the desired pressure and opened the regulator's shut off valve and the CO2 inlet valve on the brite tank. The pressure on the regulator dropped significantly. Do I adjust it again or do I leave it like that ie will the pressure "normalize"?

the gas pressure will always drop until the receiving end attains full pressure. Are you using a carbonation stone? Is there a pressure gauge on the tank itself?
