I have just built a mini keg setup exactly like one you posted a pic of in a thread, but I am getting nothing but foam. Already emptied a paintball co2 tank and half a mini keg trying to get it right. Any ideas you have could be helpful. Thanks.

pinched beer line - maybe in the tee

warm keg or lines

to much pressure - I set mine low, just enough to maintain flow for my portable and the one I had in my kegerator had a long line and a rise to it.

What have you tried?
