We've probably done 20+ barrel transfers out of 53 gal barrels with the GW Kent "Bulldog" and just recently could not get the tool to push an adequate amount of C02 into the barrel to get the beer out. Nothing is clogged, we had a good seal on the bung, all gaskets are in tact and not leaking, the receiving tank had no pressure in it and any gas leaking from dry parts of the barrel was very minimal and on par with other barrels that we've successfully transferred out of. It does seem that transfers are pretty hit or miss with this thing. Sometimes they go quick and other times we lose flow a few times throughout the transfer so I can't say we're pros with this thing but we've never had a situation where we simply couldn't push the beer out. Has anyone else experienced this and figured out what was going on? I know there are other options like the Rack it eer, diaphragm pump, lifting it to use gravity etc but I'd really like to figure out why this used to work and now it doesn't.  Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
