I just switched to a corny keg system and life is good. Well, sorta. My basement stays around 68-70 F year round, which is good for fermentation but bad for serving temperature. Alas, I do not have a beer fridge. So, to have the adequate amounts of CO2 at this temperature, I calculated something like 24-26 psi. Since I have a beer tap on a ball lock on my keg, I get a lot of foam. If I carbonate at 24 psi, then relieve the pressure prior to pouring, it comes out a little under-carbonate and then I have to top the keg off, using up more CO2 per keg than is necessary.
Can I resolve this problem using a picnic tap and 6-8 feet of tubing? What else can I do?
