Default only getting foam

First time kegger. Tried to force carb my beer and now only getting foam. This is what i did. Used 45 psi shook it up and waited to the gurgling to stop. did that 10 times. I let it sit overnight purged the keg turned it down to 9 psi and now getting a big pint of foam. What should i do? Thanks

I may be wrong here, I have been reading a lot about kegging as I am getting ready to keg my first batch, but I think you way over carbed. If your going to force carb at a pressure that high you should only shake it once, if at all.

From what I have read, you will need to purge down to 0 and let it sit a bit to get some of the carbination out, then crank it back up to 9 or so. I am sure someone with more experience will chime in soon though.

Yep, seems like you need to keep "burping" the keg until you've adjusted to the proper level of carbonation.
