You can lower the pressure, but it will take some time for the co2 to come out of solution, and then your beer will be under carbonated. Keep the pressure in the keg around 8 to 12 psi (for the carbonation level you like) and get longer beer lines. The longer lines have more surface area in contact with the beer, creating resistance and keeping the co2 in solution, and allowing the pressure to reduce more slowly and creating the perfect pour. Plastic lines are cheap.

W the lines being longer, wouldn't it tak more pressure from the co2 tank to push it through that much line.. I.e. I would run through more co2?

The pressure on the tank is the same. Only the pour is changed by longer lines.

Oh, Sanke keg. Can't help with reducing the pressure on that one. Sorry. Someone more experienced with that will have to help. Good luck!
