Default Pulsing pour

Been having this problem, tried 25-30 feet of semi rigid line and bev line, with a picnic tap on the end, i can get half a decent pour then the pour Pulses and gets bubbles in the line from the pulsing. It is 3/16th line. I have checked connections no leaks, any suggestions?

What pressure?... My guess is that it sounds like you have too much resistance (e.g. too long line) and the CO2 is coming out of solution. Either that or it is over carbed.

Is there a lot of foam? And what exactly are you dispensing? Also what pressure was it carbed at?

How is the 25-30' of beer line arranged? The pulsing could be the beer going up and down in the line. Coil the line up, and leave it horizontal.

Did you get it to work? I am having the same problem and the only thing I can attribute it to is the picnic tap. I have made several batches of root beer over the years but always served out of one of my regular taps. I am now serving (or trying) to serve out of a picnic tap using the same keg, lines, kegerator, etc and the only difference is the picnic tap and nothing but foam.
