Which brings me to the next point. It sounds like you are getting beer out, with some foam? That makes me think that your lines are way too short, and the co2 is getting "knocked out" of suspension on the way to the glass. Try 12' of 3/16" line and I bet that makes a tremendous difference if your regulator is working properly and there are no leaks. It really sounds like you're trying to burst carb a beer fast, and using a 5' or less length of beerline.
I will crank to 30 psi tonight again absolutely ... I will try your test
Ding ding ding
You are totally right. I am using a 5' out line that the homebrew supply store sold me. I had no idea that the length of a hose mattered in any way if at all. Idk why they'd sell me such a short hose .. To save money I guess
I'm drinking my pathetic undercarbed/flat beer now. I feel the effects of it, just don't enjoy choking it down
this is my last glass ( 2 total ).
I will be getting a longer hose tomorrow
