Sirs and Ma'ams,
I received 2 1/4 barrel kegs 24 hours ago. They are now at 37/38 degrees and most pours are flat with large heads or half beer and half foam. Also they taste somewhat flat. I got a two tap tower and have a couple questions hopefully someone can help with. Here are some pics of my new setup. Not sure if they posted but here are my issues:
I have a 3" dual tower tap and it came with these semi-hard plastic 3/16 5ft extensions. With my keezer, the tap is almost sitting on top of the kegs so the plastic tubes are very bent coming out of the coupler. Could this cause flatness/foaming? When I close the lid, the hard plastic tubes are curled and bend/ get pinched at the coupler.
I have been adjusting the pressure +- 4 psi over past 12 hours, could this be problem?
Lastly, I notice that the beer lines are not completely filled with beer. I notice parts of the hard plastic tubing with no beer (such as the portion on upper curves).
Not to be a pretentious ****, but my friend is a master brewer or whatever and has won gabf and world beer cup gold medals and he said the crimped tubing shouldn't be a problem and that I was likely being impatient.
I am pissed with this flat beer or heavily foamed beer. Any Suggs?
