1) NO! I realize it's been covered, but if you release any pressure at any point, your resulting carbonation level will be less than whatever you calculated/planned on with the amount of priming...

Your serving pressure is way too low for the kind of carb level you're putting into the beer with that method.

FWIW there's another method that will remove most of the carbonation almost immediately, but it does involve messing with hoses and check valves. Depressurize the keg completely, remove both check...

The reason it tastes flat is that most of the carbonation is being lost, in the form of foam. Once the foam settles from what came out as highly carbed beer, what you're left with is flat beer. It...

One obvious problem here is that your serving pressure didn't match your carbonation level. Bud Light is carbed to 2.7 vol, which requires 13 psi serving pressure at 37. Less than that and the CO2...

As mentioned, serving the beer at a lower pressure than the equilibrium pressure will often cause the CO2 to come out of solution, forming pockets of gas in the lines which cause foaming. If you...

You'll likely need to purge it many times over the course of at least a day to get the carb level down noticeably. Sitting with the gas disconnected doesn't reduce the carb level at all, you need to...

Found it on Micromatic, but your best bet for finding the carb level of any beer is usually contacting the brewery. They're usually more than happy to tell you.

That's my guess. Carb level for Oberon is 2.7 vol, which would require 13.5 psi at 38. OP, can you see any bubbles or gas pockets forming in the beer line after it sits for a while? If so, then...
