I've been trying to figure out my "head" issue for a while now.
The problem I am having is that when I pour a glass of beer, I get about 1/2 to 3/4 of a glass of foam. However, this always seems to be the first glass, the second glass poured within a short time period has less foam, and by glass 3 or 4, I am usually pouring with a nice 2 fingers of head on top. My initial thought was that I needed to make my hoses longer to cut back on the head, but that wouldn't explain why it pours correctly after a few glasses, and if I do that, would I have no head by the time I get to glass 3 or 4?
Im tempted to just increase the line length, since I usually pour 1 or 2 glasses anyway, unless of course I have people over. However, if I wind up with no head after 3 glasses, I don't think that would be good either.
Any thoughts on what might be going on here?
My setup is as follows:
Converted refrigerator with 2 taps going through the front door.
2 corny kegs inside.
The taps are about the same height as the tops of the kegs, maybe an inch higher.
running about 5-6ft. of hose(been a while since I installed them and can't remember exactly what it was, but looking at them now, it seems like 5-6)
40 degree temp
usually running about 10-12PSI
