Default Only One Beer on Keezer Foams?

I have been kegging for a good while now and have had maybe 30 kegs in the keezer, all sit on the co2 for over a week (11psi @ 38ish degrees) before I start drinking and all turn out great... no issues except for my xmas ale. It's all foam, if I turn off the gas and pull the pin for a little and serve it's fine. Eventually it goes to a trickle and I turn it back on for a little and serve again. Everything else in the keezer is fine. It hasn't been out of the keezer since I put it in and hasn't been moved? The last time I did the recipe it turned out fine. Anyone else had an issue with just one beer not carbing right?

Assuming it's not simply over-carbonated, perhaps the problem keg's Out dip tube O-ring is missing or is compromised, allowing CO2 in the head space to be injected directly into the beer flow at the Out post...

Cheers!

Hm... I guess I'll ride it out and check the keg, it's about 1/2 out anyhow.

You can check it before having to "ride it out".

Are you using the screw type ball lock disconnects? Those have been shown to have molding inconsistencies. You may have one that has a messed up mold.

It's basically the same as a slider type ball lock disconnect, except it runs away from the batter instead of towards the inside of the plate.



Actually, I think he/she is referring to mfl disconnects.

What's odd is I brewed the same type and getting the same out of it. Different keg, different line... odd?
