I too have had problems with getting a good seal with
Cornelius kegs, but not as bad as the poster yesterday.
Since it was recommended to replace the O ring on the
lid anyway, I decided to try a "Lid Sealing O Ring" from
William's Brewing (P.O. Box 2195, San Leandro, CA 94577,
415-895-2739). This is admittedly way overpriced at $5.90.
I just tried it last night. The keg sealed the first time
I put the lid on. I had never had the lid seal the first
try before. So the O ring worked as advertised so I may
have to break down and order five more for the rest of my
kegs.

Other prople on this mailing list seem to expend great effort
to avoid dispensing the sediment in a keg. I expect the first
pint or two after tapping the keg to be mostly sediment. After
that you should have sediment free beer.
