Default Dispensing a highly carbonated beer

Accidentaly over carbed an APA in my kegerator.
Went to dispense, and ALL FOAM.
Took care of problem but have a question.

If you have a highly carbonated beer (3.0+ vol CO2), do you have trouble dispensing it without either adding hose length to balance or cutting way back on pressure.

From experience, yes. It is going to foam a lot. Adding a lot of line will help some, though, I imagine.

One thing to do is bleed the pressure from the keg, give it a shake to knock out the CO2 in suspension, check pressure, repeat as necessary, then start again. Is that what you did?

Yep. Just shook and blew down, was fine the next day.

New at the kegerator. Have 2 faucts.

I put 2nd keg in, and put on 30 psi for 2 days and forgot OTHER keg was hooked up to the CO2 line (big duh).

I do 2 days @ 30 psi @ 36F - this gets me almost where I want to be. 2 more days at 14 psi, and I'm at my CO2 level I want.

Thanks for the info.
