If he lowers the temp to 40° he'll still need ~16.5 psi to maintain the carb level and prevent gas from forming pockets in the beer line.

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.

I like 40° for my beers, but that's just me. If I were you, I'd leave the temp around 38-40°, put a 10' 3/16" ID line in, and degas the keg until you don't get bubbles collecting in the line at 13 psi. That's just me though. You might prefer a different serving temp or carb level.

So finally got my beer line Im now running 15 feet of 3/16 id line. I stopped getting small bubbles running at 20psi but still get a few larger bubbles forming near the coupler .... Even with the 15 ft of line at 20psi i still get too fast of a pour and about half is foam.. I tried lowering to about 18 psi and left it over night and had about 4-5 inches of empty line near the coupler. Dont know what the deal is but i will never get a keg of yuengling again
