Default lots of foam

I just finished carbonating a belgian Pale Ale in my keg. Turned it down to serving pressure but I'm getting a huge head on top of every pour. Anybody know why?

What PSI did you carb at? What's the length of your serving lines? What temp do you keep your kegorator at?? All these factor in and must be properly balanced to get a good pour, so you just have one or more of these factors out of balance.

Also, for future reference, there is a kegging subforum, where this kind of post would get more attention.
