it's still flat but all head. If beer is flat but you have a lot of foam, it means the CO2 is

lines/shangk/faucet are war...
Posted in thread: Why do some of my beers foam so wildly? on 10-26-2011 at 08:38 PM
Like unionrdr suggests by asking his questions, I see 3 different reasons that could explain
this:* you do not let the bottle rest in the fridge for enough time. As a consequence, CO2 is
