Default how to uncarb an over-carbonated keg?

I accidently over did things when I was force carbonating a keg of IPA last week. Now I get 15.5 oz of foam and 0.5 oz of beer when I pour a pint. I've left the keg hooked up to the gas at 10 psi since then (6 days ago) thinking it may equalibriate with time but not much luck so far. Any thoughts on how to de-carb a keg?

Have you pulled the pin to release the pressure that was initially on your beer before setting it down to 10 psi?

You'll need to bleed the pressure out a few times. The CO2 needs to go somewhere.

As simple as that sounds, no I haven't tried pulling the pressure relief valve yet. But I just did and will keep doing so for the next few days. I'll report back and let you know how it turns out. Thanks!

Guy really needs to STFU and get to the point; it's like a bad porno movie, someone needs to tell him the focus is NOT the dude holding the camera.

He doesn't get to the actual technique until the 8:10 mark
