Default Foamy beer from keg

Having trouble with my first keg. Originally I had a bad regulator that constantly increased pressure to 50-60 psi. Issue has been resolved with new regulator but beer is pouring almost all foam now. I bled the keg a few times and set psi to 10 for 5-6 days and still having problem. What can I to to fix this?

How long and what inner diameter is your beer line?

Do you see foam in the lines or just at the pour?
Assuming your lines are long enough, my guess is you are still over carbed.
Disconnect from gas.
purge keg. shake keg. repeat a couple more times.
Reconnect and test.

Default Foamy beer from keg

The beer might still be over carbonated from when it was on the bad regulator. Venting the pressure a few times may not have been enough to degas the beer, depending on how long it was exposed to 50-60psi.

Alternatively, it could be an issue with the lines as has already been suggested. Too short of lines, etc.

What kind of setup are you running? Cobra/picnic tap? Tower tap? Coffin box? Collar keezer? Holes in the side of a fridge? Kind of hard to diagnose the problem without knowing more details.

Over carb'd. brrrman's suggestions should do the trick, but I would recommend that you lengthen your lines to 10ft. That will help as well.
