    You should throw in some yeast nutrient as well.

    Turn the temperature down if you can. Lower temperatures can serve at lower pressures.

    I usually see this when the carbonating pressure is higher than the serving pressure. If you
    turn up the PSI on this keg when serving, do the bubbles in the line stop? Could the beer just
    be over-carb...

    Carared will give you a candy like sweetness in the beer.

    Do not add oxygen. Your best bet to get fermentation going again is to add new yeast to .5-1
    liter of 1.040 wort then add it to your beer at high krausen.

    Even if you let it warm up, the yeast will not get rid of DMS. Yeast can drive off some DMS
    during active fermentation (off-gassing), but not once the beer is fermented.If you are getting
    veggie smell...

    You need check valves on your gas lines to keep beer from backing up into them.
