Default Anybody for a foamy keg question?

Hey guys, I think this might have been addressed before, but I'd like to hear a couple suggestions anyways if you've got 'em for me.

So, after force carbing for 30 psi at 38F for 2-3 days, I bumped it down to 10 psi for 3 days. Now my 3/16 6 foot line is all foam at first, but then of course the beer tastes rather flat. Good but flat.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks!

Did you release the pressure after you bumped it down?

I think the general rule is 1 foot of line for every psi. So... at 6 foot, your line is only 60% as long as it should be.
