    Grrrrr I was so happy. my Guinness style stout was finally kegged, I Carbonated it with CO2 for a few days. Then I hooked up my Nitrogen/CO2 mix cylinder. I checked for leaks.... didn't find any and so I went to sleep dreaming of that foamy sensation i would soon be enjoying.

    Two days later the pressure dials were at zero!!!!

    It may be a few days or more till I can re-fill my Cylinder. So my question is will my brew be ok just siting there in the kegerator without gas?
