You got the bubbles to stop at 18 psi right? That is upwards of 10.
In all seriousness it's going to depend on the carbonation level and serving temperature. To figure out the line length required to slow it down to ~1 gal/min, you can use any one of the line balancing calculators found online. For warmer serving temps or higher carb levels that may not be slow enough though.
And to get the bubbles to stop forming at a pressure of ~10 psi, you're going to need to either chill the beer to just below freezing, or degas the keg for a few days until the carbonation drops to 2.3 vol, or a little of both.
