Default Serving Pressure

I just started kegging and have a two tap draft tower. I have a commercial beer on one side (Victory Hop Devil) and my own Cream stout on the other. My regulator is set at 9psi. The Cream Stout pours fine, but the Hop Devil is extremely foamy and almost tastes flat after it settles down in the glass. What am I doing wrong? BTW, Did I mention it's my 50th B'day today???? I plan on pouring many beers today!!!!

Ok, listen up ya old bastard

Do you have at least 7 feet of 3/16" line running to the faucets?

How did you carb your own beer, CO2 tank or priming sugar?

Thanks Kid The owner of my local HBS set up my system for me. I'm pretty sure the line is 3/16....not sure of the length, at least 5 feet I'm sure. I'll try and measure it now.
My beer was carbed with the CO2 tank.

Happy Birthday my friend!

My experience with draft systems is very limited, I had a converted fridge for a while that my buddies and I kept stocked with commercial beer but it was typically light stuff, Bud Light and Coors Light - don't beat me up too bad, this was before I knew what real beer was. Anyway...I'm not familiar with Victory Hop Devil, is it considerably thinner than the Stout? The reason I ask is because I'd think that the lighter beer would be easily permeated by the CO2 in comparison to the Stout - maybe a second regulator for the VHD, backed off to 4psi or so, would do the trick.
