Is your beer pouring foam from your kegs?
Before you jump into complex trouble shooting, think about this…
It could be as simple as your beer being over-carbonated and nothing to do with line length / psi serving pressure etc. Especially if you have gone down the path to force co2 into your beer quickly. This fast forced process can give a wide variety of results and if you miss the mark slightly it could have a significant impact on the carbonation levels of your beer.
So before you get frustrated with not knowing what you have done wrong, here is a quick process to knock some co2 out of your beer to see if your pouring results improve.
HOW TO FIX AN OVER-CARBONATED KEG
STEP 1: Disconnect your beer and gas line from the keg and remove your keg from the fridge.
STEP 2: Using the pressure relief valve, release all the pressure from your keg
STEP 3: In an upright position, rock your keg back and forth for 30 seconds
STEP 4: Leave your keg to sit and settle for 1-2 minutes
STEP 5: Using the pressure relief valve, release all the pressure from the keg
STEP 6: Repeat steps 3 – 5
STEP 7: Set your regulator back to serving pressure and connect to keg. Connect back up your beer line. Serve.
STEP 8: If your beer is still over-carbonated, repeat steps 3 – 5 until your beer is at the appropriate carbonation levels.
