So I have a ball valve corny keg with a 5lb co2 tank connected.
It has a 5 foot line attached to a picnic tap.
Every time I go to pour a beer all I get is a cup full of foam, except when I turn off the CO2, bleed out the valve, detach my tap, and attach a friends foot disconnect to picnic tap while pouring at a downword angle (if I try anything lower then 10psi it will not come out of the 5 foot line and at 10 it foams like a beast).
This has happened for both of the beers I have kegged so far. The first one I rolled at a psi of 15 for about 6 or 7 minutes then left it at 15 for a solid week. The second one I rolled for a solid 10 minutes at 30 psi, left it at 30 for an hour, then bled out the pressure and put it at serving pressure.
The keg is very clean, I am fully opening the tap, I bleed out the pressure before putting it at serving, the keg is very cold, there is no residue in the line, all the bolts are very tight, the lines are in the fridge with my keg.
My keg seems to leak until I turn on the gas and get the lid at the perfect angle (may take like 10 tries at a time)...
I have had several friends that also brew come take a look at it and they have no clue how to help.
What is going on? Please help me solve this before I go insane.
Thanks in advance
