That's very impressive! OP, the general rule of thumb is 1-2 kegs per pound of CO2, and twice that if you're naturally carbing. It depends on your preferred serving temperature, amount of purging,...

It would appear that you have a leak.

The tank pressure is mostly a function of temperature until the tank is out of liquid (and close to empty).

At a cold fridge temp of 33 degrees, the CO2...

You need to look a little harder! There are lots of seals that work for pressure but not vacuum, or the other way around.

Put a vacuum on your corny keg and let me know how the seal holds up...

It depends on personal preference, but to most, Belgians are best served with pretty high carbonation, 3 volumes of CO2 or above. That's in the neighborhood of 15-18 psi depending on temperature...

Oh yeah, 5 PSI will definitely do it. If it's carbed up to 2.7 volumes it'll drop down to 2.5 eventually and the foaming will even out. I've had very good luck asking breweries for specific carb...

I see two likely possibilities:

1) your line is warmer than the keg (do you have a fan in the kegerator/keezer?)

2) you don't have the CO2 pressure high enough, so gas is coming out of the beer...

Why would the beer in the line go stale? It should be pressurize and cold, it's just an extension of the keg.

I don't have any ideas, but I agree that if all the CO2 was leaving the beer as it flowed past the poppet, you would have nothing but a glass of foam.

It could be either, depending on the regulator brand. I've found that the left-handed ports on my Taprite are labelled as such.

It should be fine either way. Just make sure you use plenty (10') of 3/16" ID tubing, then you don't have to worry about slight changes in keg pressure.
