Still foam...piece of ****.. I can see the foam coming right out of the line from the begining. I think its the keg or system and not the tap or line.

I think your right as this was my thought too. There is a plastic seal you breech, and I'm thinking that plastic creates cavitatation when dispensing.

I bought it 4 days ago and...

I actually would'nt drop the honey malt from the recipe. I use it often, its more agressive when the beer is young but rounds out after the second "aging week" nicely. I use lactose occasionaly and...

After brewing a few more wits im almost positive the actual gran bill has a generous amount of flaked wheat vs any red wheat.

5 weeks is too long for this style imo. 2.5-3 is perfect w/liquid yeast, starter preferred though. Its better young I find.

Like the OP I am pursuing a well tuned hefe.

Starter vs none. I go with none, on the suggested theory of the added stress on the yeast creates more esters. 3068 is a very strong/active yeast and...

Where did you get the grain bill from? I'm surprised to see the red wheat as well as the acidic malt. Between the sour malt and sour orange, to me the original beer never tasted sour by any means.
