Hey Dudes

Just got my nitro set up and I'm pouring all foam.
I bought the creamer faucet from AHS, 10' beer lines and force carbed it.
(the brew is an engish bitters).
I've tried several different pressures, but all foam. Even as low as 5lbs.

Do I need longer beer line? is there a trick to this? Thanks guys.

What method did you force carb at? Temp, pressure, volume, etc. It could be that you over carb'd the beer.

I carbed for 48 hrs at 30lbs
My keezer is set at 38*F

Could I have overcarbed in that short of time?

Over carbed.

Turn off the gas and start bleeding off the head space. Repeat often, check occasionally...

Cheers!

if you bought the faucet im thinking then its made to simulate a nitro pour. The creamer faucets have an option to push the handle back to make turbulance and force some of the gas out. A stout faucet has a restrictor plate inside and that is what makes the system work with the higher pressures used on nitro pours.
