Picked up the new 3/16" Black Beer Line and replaced the 1/4". Made a world of difference on my IPA. Nice flow, good head. I am happy with this one, but my Stout is still acting funny. Less foam, but still creates a lot of it and it takes forever to disapate.

I have to set the beer/gas mixture at 9psi to get it to pour well. I thought beer/gas was supposed to be set high like 20psi on a stout. Any suggestions on getting it to dispense a little better?

Thanks.

Salute!

I'm always hearing about issues with 1/4" ID line. I run 5' of 1/4" ID line to each of my 2 taps and have never had foaming problems. In fact I get perfect pours 100% of the time.

I believe beer line has a smoother interior surface. I do know I went from 3/16" regular food grade line to beer line and had no foaming issues afterword (same length).
