Update: I took a reading today and it was at 1.011. So I decided to rack. Not as good as usual, but much better. I guess the combo of cold crashing, gelatin, and time was all I needed.

Thanks...

Yeah, after about a 5 oz pour the head goes down a lot, so I know that a warm tower is part of the problem. But while the second pour is better, there's still waaaaaay too much head

Some of the beers have been freshly tapped commercial beers, so I don't think over carbonation is the issue

I thought about a fan...no doubt it would help keep the higher air colder and help keep head down a little, but there's no way it would solve my problem...TOO MUCH HEAD!

Longer beer lines or am I doing something wrong?

I know this is a hot topic here, but I've searched and searched and haven't found a solution that works.

Hammy-

Thanks for the response. That's what everyone told me originally, and that makes sense (too much carb, it shoots out, carb is released = big head/flat beer). So originally, that's what I...

Hmm interesting. Well, there's definitely gas getting in, there's a lot that shoots out when I purge. If it is in fact over carbonated now, wouldn't it have, at one point, been carbonated correctly?...
