Once to foam settled, I tried to soda and it tasted flat....but not 100% flat...but def not as carbed as it should be. Should I be concerned or is it too early to tell? Anyone with experience in this matter?
It'll take a bit longer to carb, but it will come.
The issue is going to be trying to serve it at 35 psi with 10 feet of tubing. That will never work. I used 30 feet of tubing for my soda, and it worked perfectly. At 35 psi, soda will come out of 10 feet of tubing like a firehose, with tons of foaming but flat soda because the co2 will be "knocked out" of suspension.
