So I ran it downstairs to the keezer i built and put it on tap. I havnt used my keezer yet so i guess i have a lot of bugs to work out because all I am getting out of the tap is a mug full of foam.
I have read a few things about it and it has to be the pressure (~8 lb) or the 12' of beer line I am using. I am using the thin like 3/16" i think ( PET inside lining beer tubing) - Sorry i cant remember what its called.
Any advice on how to get it to pour me a real pint?
With a 12' line and cold beer that shouldn't be the problem unless that line is large ID. What temp is your beer at? If it is a pressure problem then you should be able to bleed the keg of all pressure and attach your air line with about 3lbs of pressure behind it. That should pour very slowly but with no foaming. To sum up you want:
proper line length
fully open tap when pouring
