I attached the 10 ft hose and I am still having major foaming. Would this be because the regulator is indicating 12psi but the temperature difference could throw off the reading? Could I be dispensing at 14?20?
Cold air causes CO2 to compress. This can make the tank look more empty on the high pressure gauge than it actually is. Of course, it's pretty useless anyway.
Does nothing to the low pressure side. Your foam problems are caused by something else. Even at 20psi, 10ft of line should be good to go.
As for what that could be...are you opening the faucet fully? How much foam we talking here?
