Default to foamy...

alright so I set my keg at 10 psi and let it sit for a week and it was perfectly carbed. but then after a few more days It seems to be over carbed now. with like 6 inches of head....am I supposed to be bleeding the keg every few days or is 10 psi to much for serving pressure ?

the beer is at about 38 degrees
and the lines are only about 4 feet..... I know that most people use longer lines ...but I really want to keep them at that length if possible. what are my options ??

thanks

The kegging pros can confirm this, but if you really want to keep your lines that short you're going to have to dial your serving pressure way down to balance the system out. That's why folks have the longer lines, to add resistance to have a higher serving pressure.

longer lines. I beleave there is a sticky on something you can put into the dip tube to help you out.

I got these about a week ago. Works great. I use 1 in the tube and about 6 feet of line. Pours perfect @ 12 psi
