Need some help here. I put together the below portable kegging dispenser (based on a design found here). Keeps the kegs cold but unfortunatly beer pours out straight foam. I have tried several things (replaced hoses, chilled the lines, messed with carbonation) all to no avail. Any advice? Perhaps its something with the faucet? I appreciate any and all help. I'm supposed to bring this thing to our annual dudes weekend out tomorrow.

I connect the line to the facucet shank with the below and a hex nut to hook it to the shank. Am i missing something here? It just slowly comes out the faucet and is all foam.

Alright...figured it out. It was bad liquid connects to the keg. Switched in my picnic tap ones and it work. Weird that both connects were bad.

Good talking to you.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Try tightening the top of the liquid disconnects with a flat blade screwdriver. I had a loose one last weekend that was leaking.
