Long Draw system, do I need mixed gas?
 
THIS WAS ALSO POSTED IN THE KEGGING FORUM

I'm hoping to have my keezer in the basement and run the beer and glycol lines through the floor and up to my draft tower. The run might be 12'-15'.
Will I run into problems with over carbonated beer (foam) becuase the CO2 will be difussing into the beer as it trys to push the beer that far up from the kegs? I'm hoping to avoid mixed gas. Maybe I have no choice. Aanybody else run into this? Thanks

Hi

Same reply as in the other forum, no you don't need mixed gas. You may need 1/4" beer line. The run and height are a bit long for 3/16". The only downside of a "to long run" of 3/16" will be that the beer pours a little slow. A "to short" run of 1/4" will give you crazy foam problems.
